The Yauyos National Reserve is a really beautiful area of Peru. The main city is Huancaya, about 7 hours from Lima, and 4-5 from Lunahuana. I recommend this trip, but you need at least 3 days given all the driving, and I think a 4...More

I've read it was the best landscape in Lima province, so we went there camping last weekend: it was amazing! It was extremly cold at night but if you have the appropiate gear or you stay in a house, it'll not be a problem.

A great place to enjoy the cordillera near Lima, a 6 hours drive from San Isidro, the road along the cordillera after you leave Lunahuana is thrilling and awesome. You will get the chance to see Cañete, Lunahuana, and several little villages along the road...More

Go and enjoy the scenery of this peaceful and fantastic national reserve. big rainbows await you in the crystal clear mountain river and lakes of the Cañete river, especially around the scenic little village of Huancaya.

Never seen 3D landscape and I must say that Peru has it all. This is Mother Nature at it's finest. Beautiful areas.
