    We head to Ikala, the "Hidden Village ", an abandoned village with adobe houses, built with Incan influence. Wandering around the streets we find and old church and get a glimpse of what life meant to these people. We continue through the trail of the apachetas rock mounts, stones that signaled and guided shepherds; as we gain height, we get a view of the hills that surround the area.

TRAYECTO RAMADITAS -CHITUCA
Overland
Easy
Full-day
  • Exploration Path

    While leaving our Mountain Home towards Chituca we can see the transition from a solitary and extensive Andean expanse to an increasingly friendly geography, which thereby allows for human demography. We will come closer to towns and appreciate the changes in the ecosystem, from areas with scarce vegetation to actively worked fields.
    With our driver and guide we cross the lagoons of the Altiplano (Honda, Char Kota, Hedionda), with different views to the volcanoes. We continue until we reach the Turquiri Lagoon, watching diverse Andean wildlife along the road. This lagoon features a large concentration of birds, surrounded by impressive ignimbrite formations.
    We walk bordering a grazing wetland for llamas and goats, a haven for one of the traditional trades in the aera. We will then have lunch in the heights of the Turquiri Lagoon with broad views to the Altiplano. We head back to the Mountain Home in Chituca.
