Marcahuasi is one of the best two day trips in the greater Lima area and one of the best kept secrets for adventure lovers. Marcahuasi is a mountain vista in the Andes mountains, 50km east of Lima. It is known for tent camping, crazy rock formations, beautiful views of the valleys below and the stars above, as well as it’s legacy of possessing a cosmic energy. You can get to the base of Marcahausi by car, which is 3,800m at its highest point, but most opt for the 3-hour one way hike. To make the hike you need to be quite fit and you need to bring camping equipment, supplies, and warm clothing for the cold nights at that altitude.
