The National Reserve of Arequipa

Approximately halfway of the trip that links Arequipa with Colca Canyon is the National Reserve Salinas and Agua Blanca, which has an extension of approximately 370 thousand hectares taken as an aim for the conservation of the vicuña, that this puna preserves and feeds to a lot of communities and the city of Arequipa itself.

Along this route, travelers can see groups of vicuñas grazing on the plains and along the road as well as in Patahuasi. A necessary stop trip to Colca may contemplate strange rock formations characteristic of this protected area.

Useful tips

  • Free access.
  • The National Reserve includes several volcanoes, including Chachani, visible along the journey to Colca.
  • Beside Patahuasi in Viscachani, coffee El Chino offers excellent cheese sandwiches, coca tea and coffee.
