Pacucha Lagoon

Apurimac Region, Peru

Bordering Cuzco, the stunning Apurimac region of Peru is blessed with hot springs, mountain forests, deep canyons and the renowned Pacucha Lagoon -- a popular stop for adventure tourists on their way to Machu Picchu. Here, you can sunbathe on the lagoon’s peaceful shores, hike the remote Sondor Archaeological Site, or trek to the town of Andahuaylas for rocoto (hot chili pepper) stuffed with minced beef, egg, peas and carrots.
