    Llahuar Lodge

    April 7 in Peru

    Nach einer 5 stündigen Wanderung runter in den Canyon sind wir endlich in der Lodge angekommen. Dort gab es erst mal was zu Essen um uns wieder zu stärken. Nachdem wir uns eine Stunde ausgeruht haben, sind wir in die heißen Quellen zum Entspannen gegangen. Direkt neben den Quellen verläuft ein Fluss der Eiskalt ist. Eine gute Mischung um immer wieder zwischen warm und kalt zu wechseln. Insgesamt zwei Stunden haben wir uns bei den Quellen entspannt.
    Eine Gruppe von Holländern konnte gar nicht glauben das ich die 3 Tage Trekking in Chucks mache.😅 Jeder den wir bisher getroffen haben hatte richtige Wanderschuhe an.
    Nach dem Essen sind wir nur noch kaputt ins Bett gefallen.

    Die Strecke die wir heute zurück gelegt haben war 9km und insgesamt 1100 Höhenmeter.

    Reached Llahuar

    November 17, 2017 in Peru

    The bus journey took about 1 hour and S/ 10 per person to the Llahuar stop. From there we trekked down into the canyon, across a bridge and the slightly up again to the 4-5 huts that form the village of Llahuar.
    The main place in the village is the Llahuar Lodge. It is situated right above where rio Colca merges with the rio Molloco to form the rio Majes. The hot springs are right next to the junction of the rivers and belong to the Llahuar Lodge.Read more

    Llahuar Lodge

    November 17, 2017 in Peru

    Llahuar Lodge is the 1st hut one encounters when you enter the village. They are situated about 50 mts above the river level and own the hot springs. Its a beautiful location with great views. All the information displayed in the shack is in English and they have rooms to stay overnight and meals are also provided. The lodge has been in operation since 2001 and seemed all equipped to exploit tourists. They charge S/ 10 per person for using the hot springs and the beds cost S/ 25 per person with usage of the hot springs included.
    It was 8:40 am and I had not had anything to eat so we decided to have some food before going to the hot springs.

    Llahuar Hot Springs

    November 17, 2017 in Peru

    Right next to the river are the 4 pools with the hot water. The 2 slightly higher were quite cool and felt about 23C while the ones next to the river were a bit hotter at about 26-27C, still quite colder than the advertised 39C. This was ok with us since it was very sunny and quite hot in the canyon.
    There was no shade and the sun beating down on us didn't make it any easier. To add to that, the hot water wasn't very pleasant to sit in. After about 15 min, we moved to the higher much cooler pools. Here we sat in the water for another 40-50 min. There were quite a few small mosquitoes and sun flies there. They bit me pretty badly all over the face so I was out earlier, wore all the clothes and sat in the shade of the only umbrella there.
    At 11 am, we decided to start walking back to catch the 12 pm return bus to Cabanaconde since there was not much else to do here.

    Back at Llahuar bus stop

    November 17, 2017 in Peru

    We climbed back up and were at the bus stop at 11:40, 20 min before the bus time. It was extremely hot and the sun was very sharp. While we waited for the bus, Hristo had a look at the maps and felt we should do the hike to the Huaruro waterfall and go back to Cabanaconde the next day since we had come prepared for an overnight stay. I had a different opinion since I felt that the hike of 5 hours to the waterfall with an elevation difference of about 500 mts would be suicidal in the burning sun, plus there was no place to stay at the waterfalls so we would have to trek down another 1.5 hrs to the nearest village for the overnight stay. Not only would the trek be too tiring and hot, we would also be trekking the last hour in pitch darkness as well.
    Eventually, we decided to drop the idea and head back to Cabanaconde. The bus came right on time around 12 pm. On the way back, one of the bus types blew up in a blast. The driver and the conductor changed the tyre while we waited before boarding the bus again to continue the journey.
