Our excursion to the Chimpa fortress is a combination of natural and man-made beauty.

Private

Colca Valley

Cultural / Adventure

The Fortress is located in Madrigal area (right side of the Colca canyon) and it was a strategically military facility made with stones by the Collagua culture (Pre-Inca).

This whole activity takes approximately 6 hours and the path to the top of the hill was designed with options of resting in some spots in case of need. It requieres a moderate physical condition.

From the top of the fortress you will be able to enjoy an incredible view of the canyon with its terraces, gorges, and along the walk enjoy  beautiful and peculiar Andean flora. We will have time to explore walking through the areas of the fortress and of course, take as many photos as possible.

On our way back we visit the town of Madrigal and the town of Lari with its beautiful church, one of the most spectacular temples in the Colca Valley.

The Chimpa Fortress is undoubtedly a fascinating and different destination in the wonderful Colca Valley!

    Giardino was recommended by a friend, and even though I had booked some hotels on my own, they managed to work around it, and provide us a wonderful experience from Paracas, Nazca, Ica, Huacachina to Puno. The guide Luis Angel was very knowledgeable, answered every question, and went over and beyond his duties to make the tour an unforgettable time in Perú.

    We had a fun and educational private Colca Valley tour and road trips with Ramiro (guide) and Herbert (driver) from Giardino Tours. They picked us up from the Arequipa airport, took us to our accommodations at Colca Lodge, took us on a beautiful hike to the isolated Chimpa Fortress... We are glad the agency we engaged to plan our Peru adventure chose Giardino Tours for this part of the trip!

    We traveled in Peru with having all of our trip booked through the Giardino travel agency. Karla helped us with the planning and booked the trip, the individual tours and our flights. The price for the tour overall was very reasonable... The guides were fantastic and were the best part about doing these tours. They were knowledgeable and had some of the best recommendations for us to do

    We went on a two-day tour with Luis and Julio and it was amazing! Luis speaks very good English and knows a lot about the history and culture of is own country. At every question, he could easily give you a good answer and explainating. Julio was a very good driver. We felt very safe and he stopt at the best spots for pictures. This was one of the best trips during our stay in Peru. We highly recommend this tour guide!
