Pachacamac Valley, History and Nature

Summer is time of light. And afternoon is best for this nature and landscape photography tour in Pachacamac valley and hills.
The Pachacamac Valley photo trip covers the area of Lurin River, south from Lima city, hiking along its natural and farming areas we will find some Inca sites to explore and amazing dry landscapes.

We suggest to start around 1:30pm leaving the city of Lima to the south east to reach the valley of Lurin River, known as Pachacamac Valley. Once there we will make short  hikes by different sides of the valley ending in the area known as Lomas (hills), very dry in summer, but good to get there close to sunset time. After the blue hour we will start the way back to Lima.
If you plan something in the morning is better to plan a pick up from 6am or earlier to avoid the heath of the day.

Optional: Visit to the Pachacamac Museum and Archaeological Site.
In this case we must leave the city around 10am. 2 hours at the site and one hour to reach the starting point of the photo trip plus time for lunch. we recommend to add first the visit to Villa Wetlands to photograph birds that live in this small natural reserve leaving the city at 8am. Ask for the extra cost and spends.
