Alternative Trekking Llahuar - Fure
Eco - Tour 4D / 3N


This is the best trekking tour to explore the depth of Colca Canyon and the experience is totally different from other trekking tours.


I have been trekking in Colca Canyon for many years and I must say that this is the top between other trekking tours. You won’t find so many trekkers, except for the last day at Sangalle, and it is only us in the mountains. I always enjoy trekking from Llahuar to Fure and to its waterfall of Huaruro.


The Village of Fure is at 2 900 meter. This little tiny farming village has a great location and it is surrounded by huge mountains and the river of Llatica. Definitely this is the best scenery of the Colca Canyon . The waterfalls of Huaruro are 40 minutes trekking from the village this is the best part of the hike, to reach these isolated waterfalls and hear the power of the water crushing to the ground makes worth the trek.


This trekking Tour is only organized by Pachamama and we do our best so you can have the best experience.
