parque identidad

Identity Park
 
This quaint park is a common location for local wedding photos. Made completely of stones, the park was designed to promote Huancaino culture and identity. Throughout the park, you’ll see representations of Huancaino crafts and statues of famous Andean folkloric artists. You can reach this park by taking any combi headed to Palian and getting off at Jr. Santa Felicita, around 10 minutes from the city center. Note that this area is not so safe in the evenings.

Sunday Market
 
The Sunday fair dominates 10 full city blocks in the city center, from the 2nd to the 12th block of Av. Huancavelica. Hundreds of vendors travel to the city from the surrounding towns to display and sell their crafts, such as carved gourds, jewelry and textiles. You can also take this opportunity to try different kinds of food typical to the area.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
torre torre
 
Torre Torre
 
In the outskirts of the city, you’ll find a series of gigantic geological formations up to 100 feet tall. These structures of red clay were formed into natural towers and castles over many years of erosion. From these heights, you also get a fabulous view of the city. It’s best if you trek up to Torre Torre with a tour because there are often pickpockets along the route.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
arwarturo
 
Arwaturo and Ñahuinpuquio 
 
To get to the ruins of Arwaturo in Chupaca around 10 miles outside of Huancayo, you need to hike uphill for around 20 minutes. These ruins date back to the Huancas who inhabited the Mantaro Valley and were subdued by the Incas during their conquest. The ruins consist of 17 stone buildings that were once used as storage warehouses for the Huancas and Incas. After hiking back down, visit the majestic Ñahuinpuquio Lake where you can take a romantic boat ride or eat at one of the shoreside restaurants.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
la merced
 
La Merced
 
The town of La Merced offers many alternatives of entertainment for jungle lovers. Located in the province of Chanchamayo, in the middle of the selva central (Junín, Peru). Definitely, a trip to see the waterfalls of Bayoz and El velo de la novia is very much worth to do. Combine the relaxing experience of waterfalls with a day trip to communities Pampa Michi and San Miguel de Marankiari and check the amazing routes these communities keep safe only for the most adventurer trekkers.
