The Town of Chiquian

20140811_164621The first multi-day trek of my recent trip was a 5 day circumnavigation of the Cordillera Huayhuash. Prior to beginning the circuit, I decided to overnight in the little visited mountain town of Chiquian.

Gorgeous setting, great variety of street food and perhaps my favourite lodging in all of Peru, the Hotel Los Nogales.

Chiquian’s premier lodging option boasts a wondrous courtyard, along with some of the quirkiest wall hangers you are likely to find; all for the princely sum of less than US$10 per night.
