5
 hours
english

Leave the crowds behind during your visit to the Potato Park, where you will get to learn all about Peru’s most important vegetable – the potato. You will be welcomed by members of the community, who will provide you with an insight into their initiative and their daily life in the Andes region.

Don’t miss the chance to taste some different types of delicious potatoes, traditionally cooked as ‘Huatia’ in an earth oven. Next, you will be taken to the Chahuaytire weaving community about 40 minutes away to witness the impressive culinary creativity in the Potato Park by trying a typical lunch in a community-run restaurant. Before being dropped off at your hotel, make sure to check out the community of Sacaca where you will have the chance to purchase various local herbs and teas with excellent curative properties.
