Arequipa: salinas y aguada blanca 1 day
Tour starts at 7:00 a.m. We pick you up from your hotel in a private car to the Salinas lagoon. This lagoon is located at 4300 m. high between the Misti, Ubinas and Pichupichu volcanoes. The Salinas Lagoon is located within the Aguada Blanca and Salinas National Reserve and is therefore a protected area. The Ubinas is a volcano that in recent years has been in a moderate eruption process. Throughout the year we can see vicuñas (one of the species of South American camelids) and on some occasions llamas and alpacas. We will also be able to observe the vizcacha (rabbit of the Andes) and if we are a little lucky we will be able to see some Andean foxes. We will also be able to observe a plant that only grows at an altitude of more than 4,000 meters, called yareta (azorella compacta).
Here we can see the three different species of flamingos. Then we will visit the town of tambos de sal where we will be able to observe the artisan exploitation of salt. If there is not much water we can cross the lagoon with our 4×4. Upon returning from the Salinas lagoon to Arequipa we can visit the typical town of Chiguata. On the way we will take many photos of the Misti volcano. Arrival to the city of Arequipa approx. 3 p.m.
