Peru expeditions - Huaraz - Tripadvisor!

A project by Juventino Martin Abino Caldua, a professional mountain guide (AGMP-UIAGM).
Community Tourism in the village of Unchus
We would like to present you our community tourism project with the farmers of the villages Unchus, Yarush and Llupa in Huaraz (Ancash), Peru.

Participating in community activities involves learning about the community organization system and assimilating techniques and ancestral customs, which are now being revitalized.
Agricultura en el pueblo de Unchus
Community tourism is a new form of relationship between the community and its visitors. It aims at an intercultural exchange, implying active participation of all members, ensuring the proper management of natural resources, valuation of assets and the cultural and territorial rights of people.

About Accommodation / our house:
We have a very comfortable house with private rooms and shared rooms. It is also possible to camp and do campfires at our place. Moreover, you can do lots of different hikes like for example a day hike to Lake Churup or a visit to the villages of Marian or Wilcahuain and you can do great mountain biking trips in the surroundings.
Things to do or practice with the native farmers in our village
harvest sowing and reaping: potatoes, corn, wheat, oca (potato of the Incas) and quinoa etc.

Sheep, donkeys, cows, bulls, horses, pigs, guinea pigs, chickens and other.
Typical food in the area
In Unshus we will serve you typical food, like for example Quinoa Soup, Llunca and Pachamanca (a very special meal and tradition of the Incas). This meal is prepared by hand.

First you have to build a stone oven and heat it up for about an hour.

Then you put some things in the stone oven like potatoes, yams, tamales, corn, chicken, pork, beef, etc. The last step is to bury everything with earth and let it steam for around an hour.

During those festivals we eat a lot of guinea pig and other typical dishes of the area and practice our traditional dances.
