Arequipa was not only my base for – finally – some great food, but also the closest place to Colca Canyon. Apparently, the third most-visited location of Peru and, also, a great destination for trekkers.
So, I packed my bag, left my suitcase in Arequipa, and took a 5 hours bus to Cabanaconde. Altitude: 3296 meters. Weather: torrential rain.
