A splendid view of Colca canyon. It is right near what will become the Juanita museum. Off the beaten trail still and peaceful.

Nice place to see the villages in the canyon. It is a place most of the treks start. You see SAn Juan de Chuccho and Sangalle. If you are not on a trek. Stop here before you stay/go to Cabanaconde. It's near a soccer stadium
