Day 4

Salinas Lagoon

This lagoon is located at 4300 m. high, it is surrounded by the Misti, Ubinas and Pichu Pichu volcanoes. The salinas lagoon is located within the aguada blanca and salinas national reserve and therefore is a protected place.

Transfer from your hotel in Arequipa at 07:00 a.m. and we will travel for approximately 04 hours.

Laguna de Salinas is a high Andean salty lake that receives the waters of an endorheic basin, located between snow-capped mountains and volcanoes. Open peat bogs known as bofedales surround the lagoon, being an important plant formation for grazing native camelids such as vicuñas and llamas, as well as habitat for the endemic fish Orestias Agassizii and the Chilean flamingo.

In the Lagoon you can observe birds during and after the rainy period in that period where the artisanal collection or salt collection begins.

When the lagoon is dry the charm is different, we see the blue sky surrounded by volcanoes with a dry white lagoon full of salt. Here we can see the three different species of flamingos, this can be seen only in this lagoon and not in another part of the world. To be more specific, this does not happen even in the most famous “flamingo lakes” in Africa (Nakuru and Naivasha, in Kenya) since only two species can be observed there.

During the day we will have a box lunch in the middle of nature.

Then we return to the city of Arequipa, before reaching the town of Chiguata we can offer you a downhill trek, this trek is optional of 02 hours, from Simbral to the town of Chiguata. During this trek we can take more photos of the Misti Volcano and pre-Inca terraces, and we pass through a Queñuas or Quiwiña (Polylepis) forest.

Arrival to the city of Arequipa at approximately 05:00 p.m.

Overnight in Arequipa.
