Yanque is situated in the Andean region of Junin in southern Peru. One of many attractive towns in the Canon del Colca – one of the world’s foremost trekking destinations – Yanque distinguishes itself with a number of great cultural attractions. Admire the Baroque exterior of the church of Iglesia de la Inmaculada Concepcion and then visit the Museo Yanque to learn more about the town and the ancient history of the region, and then enjoy the bars, cafes and restaurants of the central Plaza Yanque. Before attempting the summit of Mount Yanque (5,205 metres) or continuing your trek through the Canon del Colca, visit the hot springs of Banos Chacapi and be sure to take the 30-minute trek to the fascinating pre-Incan ruins of Uyo Uyo, which date back more than 800 years.
