Do not leave Arequipa without visiting this park. It has hot springs, salt flats, wildlife and beautiful Andean views. Too bad most tourists miss it. A day is enough but stay longer if you can.

Located 97km north of Arequipa on the Caylloma Road (1.45 hrs by bus), is the Salinas Reserve which houses the Sumbay Caves where you will see amazing cave paintings, some 8,000 years old created by the first humans to live in the Peruvian highlands. Clearly recognizable, I spotted paintings of the Rhea, Puma, Guanaco (no longer found in this area but still found in the southern parts of South America) amongst other paintings. Our train stopped in the middle of nowhere at the spot where natural rock steps lead down to the caves. You can’t underestimate the steepness and difficulty of navigating these steps but our train provided hiking sticks which made things easier, although coming back up was harder and our guide gave me a second stick which was a godsend.

Great to go into the national park to see herds of alpacas, llamas and vicuna. Bus trip through the park with plenty of stops and viewing areas to see the herds.

I came to Arequipa for Colca Canyon like most everyone else. Decided to make the most of our free day and made our way to this reserve on an organized tour. We had no idea there were beautiful salt flats in Peru too! Plus the wildlife and hot springs made it really a special day. I fully recommend it.
