From lake Ccocha to our private campsite with thermal pool

 

Lake Ccocha is a beautiful lake located 1 hour south of Curahuasi.  It is located near the small settlement of Ccocha, at an altitude of 3800m. The local people live very modestly and spend their days taking care of their animals and fields. This rustic atmosphere added to the beautiful scenery of this remote spot guarantees to put even the busiest mind at ease!

1-day trip

We leave at 9 in the morning and drive 1 hour up the mountain in our famous “BUGGY”. On the way we can enjoy magnificent views of the mountain’s cape as well as a panoramic view over Curahuasi.

Once we arrive at the lake, you can enjoy a scenic walk around the lake with magnificent views into the next valley. If lucky, you might even enjoy the flight of the Condors. After the walk we eat our lunch and then we continue our trip.

There are three options to continue: in our buggy, by foot or by bike until our private campsite with thermal pool, a 30 minutes’ drive from our B&B.

The trip takes you down from around 3800 meters to around 1500 meters above sea level. This offers you a beautiful transition in scenery, going from highland meadows to “the eyebrow of the Peruvian jungle”.

The walk takes about 5 to 6 hours, biking will take us between 2 and 3 hours and in our buggy it takes us about 1,5 hours to arrive. If some want to cycle and some want to continue in the buggy, this is possible at any time during the trip. In the afternoon we relax at our pool and set our way back to Curahuasi at around 5 p.m.

2-day trip

Instead of biking/walking/driving to our campsite with a thermal pool in the same day, we set up our tents and prepare a delicious barbecue with some meat, potatoes, fresh salads and … hopefully some of the fish we caught.
In the morning, after a healthy breakfast, we pack our stuff and continue as in the 1-day trip.
