Paccha Waterfall 

  • We will pick you up from your hotel or hostel located in Arequipa's city center at 8am and drive 2 hours to the Paccha Waterfall trailhead. On the way we will make brief stops to take photos of the Altiplano landscape, Misti and Chachani volcanoes and any wildlife we come across. It is very likely we will spot several majestic vicuñas.

  • Once arriving to the trailhead, we will begin the steep descent to the Paccha Waterfalls. The descent takes approximately 1.5 hours before finally arriving to the pools at the foot of the impressive waterfall. Here we will eat lunch and rest for approximately one hour before packing up and heading back to the car. You also have the choice to swim or try your luck at fishing for trout!

  • The ascent back to the car is a bit more challenging and takes between 2 and 3 hours depending on your pace. We will then make our way back to Arequipa arriving at 5pm.
