Then you will start descending into the next valley passing beautiful rock formations, streams and herds of lamas. On the bottom of this valley there is a small farmer’s settlement, where you will spend the night and your dinner will be prepared in a traditional clay oven.
On the second day you will get to see an overwhelming panorama of the Kari Kari mountain range during the hike. The trekking will end with a visit to the thermal baths of Chaqui, famous for their medical effects.
