Description

The valley of Majes, place of fertile lands, cozy people, delicious shrimp and pisco, is located just less than three hours from the city of Arequipa on a paved road.
  • It can be visited throughout the year, but it is during the "Harvest Festival" (between March and April) when it shows its maximum splendor.
  • Another attractive celebration for tourists is the "Shrimp Festival", in which adventure sports such as canoeing on the Majes River are practiced.
  • Within the Majes Valley there are three districts: Aplao (capital of the province of Castilla), Uraca-Corire (whose capital is Corire) and Huancarqui.
  • We recommend staying in Corire or Aplao and, from there, visiting the other tourist attractions that the area offers.

    Day 1
    VALLE DE MAJES VITIVINICOLA CAMARON TOUR

    • 5:30 am - Departure from the city of Arequipa towards the Majes Valley.
    • 9:00 am - Our first visit will be the Toro Muerto Petroglyphs where we will find a fabulous set of engraved Petro, blocks of volcanic rock scattered in a number around 500 pieces. Zoomorphic figures such as birds, mammals, reptiles, etc. can be seen.

    • 1:00 pm - Lunch in Aplao
    • Visit to the profile of Christ
    • The town of Huancarqui is one of the oldest in the province of Castilla. Its foundation dates from the pre-Inca era, and presumably the first Spaniards founded the town on the Inca cemeteries. It gives the impression of being a passing town, and forgotten, by the location of its square, its dirt streets and its main cobbled avenue. However, we allow ourselves to qualify it as a corner of exotic and disconcerting beauty, with a beautiful vision of nature that offers a feeling of reflection, a landscape that delights visitors, we can consider it as a virgin place, few people have visited it for fear, due to the fame he enjoys.
    • La Tacta: It is a very interesting rock formation, eroded by the wind through the ages, which is in the district of Huancarqui, apparently Tacta is a Quechua word that would mean flat stone or something similar ...
    • Medicinal Baths of Chancharay: Located in Huancarqui; ten minutes from the town, from the slopes of the hill called Tomaca, several water jets sprout, which contain medicinal properties; Chancharay mineral water is very beneficial for stomach diseases and rheumatism. In addition, many medicinal virtues are attributed to these waters, especially to cure themselves of sterility, it is said that when couples cannot have children, it is enough to bathe in Chancharay and drink from their waters to start the family.
    • Finally, we will visit a vineyard where they will explain how the wine and pisco production process is.
