Natural pillars of sandstone - reminded me of Capuddocia in Greece but on mini scale. There are pillars elsewhere but these are exceptional. I have difficulty walking uphill so the guide drove higher up and took me on a path through one of the villages,...More

These are natural formations developed over hundreds of years. You'll need to be prepared for a hike especially if one of the neighborhood "guides" offers to lead you. But it's worth it and except for the little you'll pay the guide the only other cost...More

A great experience of Huancayo's setting in the Val de Mantaro which is also near to the city: extraordinary natural formations which seem like buildings ruined or modern sculptures. Roam with a freedom from Health and Safety restrictions some of us know elsewhere!

These rock formations are truly stunning. They definitely give honor to their name as they tower very high surrounded by beautiful scenery, blue skies and you will even find sheep pasturing at the very top. Getting to the highest section is so worth it! You...More

These formations are absolutely stunning. I would have liked to walk through them, but two locals stopped me while walking there and told me it was unsafe, that people get robbed. I'm not one to give in to fear, but I was bit too paranoid...More

This place reminds me of the grand canyon site, in a smaller scale of course! We visited during the day and it was amazing climbing this mountains and seeing the towers. We took a taxi from el Cerrito, the road was very rustic and almost...More
