Papallacta Lake Lookout
The eruption of the Volcano Antisana in the 18th century generated a lava flow that filled in the old glacier of the Papallacta River causing drainage to the Tambo River. This chain of natural events created the lagoon characterized by the dark tone of its waters. Its climate is cold and surrounded by reeds and pads
Second stop - Free time 4 hours
Termas de Papallacta pools.
It is the ideal place to take full advantage of the benefits of hot springs. Discover the circuit of pools and enjoy the water at different temperatures, receiving in each pool different types of massages through water jets.

We stopped a number of places we weren’t expecting to see which added to the experience, and we passed though the areas where Jessy and David were born and grew up, which made us realise how in touch with the local area they both were.
On top of all of this the views were stunning, and although it was a long day overall we felt the time passed by quickly with watching the landscape. Not to mention the waterfalls. I would also recommend the zip lining through the jungle!
If you are interested in not only seeing the beautiful views but hearing about the local area definitely choose this tour. We’ll be back!
Jimmy the driver is a very experienced South American driver familiar with the local flow and areas. He was consistently safe and efficient.
Highly recommend the tour! Be ready to hike!
