Maragua Crater Tour - 2 Days/1 Night
From the chapel of Chataquila on the rim of the Cordillera de los Frailes you walk down the Inca trail to Chaunaca while you enjoy impressive views all around. When you reach Chaunaca our car will pick you up and take you to the Ravelo River where we have a break and you can swim if you like.
Next the car will cross the river and will take you to the crater of Maragua.
We settle ourselves in the country houses; there you have a kitchen and the dinner will be made before dark because there´s no electricity and it will be a romantic candlelight dinner in the middle of the crater.
Don’t want to do any hiking but just want to enjoy the view from the car? It’s still worth the trip! Around the village there are lots of things to see as well. Locals will be happy to show you their weavings and the way they live. You can also visit the cemetery, the waterfalls and the Sacred Cave under the waterfall.
Not for people with vertigo.
By the way, for walking along the Inca trail (A day before) and visiting the Dino - tracks of Niñu Mayu we pay your fee, which is for the local communities who guard and maintain the sites and the trail. The second day, very early, you can hike up (4 hours Approx.) to the dinosaur tracks at Niñu Mayu.
You can do more or do less hiking, depending on what you like, the car will be close at all times. Everything is flexible, just coordinate with your bilingual guide.

We try not to bring too much things like soft drinks and snacks/chocolates from the city and instead we want everybody to spend in the little villages, so tourism will make sense to the local people….
Of course we`ll bring the main food from the city
