Honcopampa Ruins and Waterfall (Tour by Car)
A tour into a remote valley very close to the mountains to visit some ancient pre-Inca Ruins and then a short hike up to a delightful waterfall hidden among the trees.
We depart Huaraz in our private vehicle passing through the village of Parihuanca and then continuing winding up towards the mountains through interesting farmland and small villages. We then reach a surprising large green flat pampa high in the mountains where we have close views of the mountains Copa, Urus, Vallunaraju and more. From the end of the road we have a short 30 minute hike up to the cool hidden waterfall.
On the return we either walk down or take the car to the interesting ruins dating from the Wari Culture at Jancopampa. Inside the temple ruins you will be left wondering how they managed to place the enormous rocks into the ceiling of the building with out aid of modern machinery. We will have a relaxing lunch in the sun on the wide grass field near the ruins and then return to Huaraz. On the return trip you may decide to visit the thermal baths of Monterray for a dip in the hot baths!
