Waterfalls of Huancaya, Peru

Peru has it all – mountains, waterfalls, deserts, highlands and everything in between. One Saturday morning – bright and early- we (my European volunteer friends – Heather, Eliyse and Marius) hit the road from Huancayo to Huancaya. Along the way, we enjoyed some beautiful scenery. Huancaya is directly east of Lima in the Andes mountain range.

Huancaya offers a series of waterfalls. From a distance they are something to marvel at. Up close, they’re even better.

There are some stunning canyons along the road toward Huancaya too.

We hit a hail storm which sounded intense and awesome on the van roof on the drive back to Huancayo. The hills were dusted in white. Although we were at high altitude, we weren’t expecting snow and hail, but we got it. Again, Peru has it all!
