Description

Drove away from the road behind a small “hill”. Beautiful location with great view. Price: free

Cross railway tracks at the black and white signs. Keep right on the first split in the dirt road and go down to the meadow next to the river that you will see once you're up the little hill.

Nice flat spot to camp, BUT we got a strange vibe from the guy from the shack nearby. He came up to us and asked us for our names, wrote them down (refused to tell us his name) and warned us because of his dogs who would bite. We first didn't understand his warning as we were not close at all, but when it got dark he had let them free and they were approaching our tent and barking at it for quite a while. When we were taking a picture of the nightsky they were running after us. We didn't have a good feeling here.

Spend a night there on the way to Cusco, nice spot, we didn't go all the way to the river either but it was cool. Hidden from the main road and away from the houses around.. On the next morning we saw lot of llamas around us, beautiful moment.. Recommended! PS: Follow the track and you won't get lost (maybe it's colder down the river)

Beautiful and peaceful spot, close to the road but well hidden and you can’t hear any cars. There is quite a bit of llama or sheep poop but it’s nice anyway

Awesome spot, hidden from the road and with amazing views. Bathing in the river is excellent. After sun down (6PM at the moment) we had to go into the tent as it gets friggin' cold. We could see a cow farm about 500m away with some people walking around. If they saw us they didn't mind us being here.

Didn’t go all the way to river. Parked behind second small hill. After about an hour a drunk guy from the nearest shack came to check on us. Heard his dogs bark a few times in the night. At dusk we spotted a fox. It hung nearby for about an hour. Even when we shined flashlight on it. Beautiful.

Beautiful place to camp. We went down closer to the river. No 4x4 needed. If you cross the train tracks at the signs it's no problem ( might be hard coming back out with low clearance though) then follow the track to the right.

Nice place like the other comments told. Nice views. Bit tricky to get over the train line. With 4x4 was no Problem to drive down to the river.

Report Check-In

Amazing, peaceful and fantastic. Yes, it’s cold at night but the sun (especially in the morning) is extremely warm and there is hardly any wind. We spent a wonderful afternoon, evening and long morning here. Lovely!

We also drove down by the river. Right now it is dry and doable without 4x4. Beautiful place, beautiful night sky. No wind after sunset.

Still accessible, still a great spot. Look for the signs to cross the tracks. Maybe this is new, but once you cross the tracks the dirt road splits. You want to go to the right, not the left.

Still accessible and gorgeous. When dry no 4x4 needed.

beautiful! for our camper-van it was a bit tricky to cross the railway, because we do not have high clearance. we need to shuffle some more stones to make it doable.

Beautiful overnight place! Well worth to stop here. The coordinates which indicates the turn-off are very helpful.

We arrived to this wild camp by night and it was a little bit more difficult to find the place. We did it with the description of the railway crossing signs. After crossing the railtrail you will see a small road in dirt, keep going until you reach the point. Be careful to have a lantern in order to see where to cross. The place is quiet and the landscape is really beautiful. We slept in Autumn with a tent and a bed in the 4x4. It was raining and freezing but worth it :). We upload some photos for you to see where is the entrance. Safe trips!

We drove a little further in past this hill and down to a beautiful flat meadow right next to the river. One of the most beautiful, starry nights so far on this trip. Quiet, free, but very cold. Our water pipes and dog water bowl froze overnight. Turnoff from the paved road is hard to see - look for the railroad crossing signs and then turn off the highway and over the tracks onto a very lightly used dirt track.
