Community Tourism: in the village of Unchus. We would like to present you our community tourism project with the farmers of the villages Unchus, Yarush and Llupa in Huaraz (Ancash), Peru. Participating in community activities involves learning about the community organization system and assimilating techniques and ancestral customs, which are now being revitalized.

Community tourism: Community tourism is a new form of relationship between the community and its visitors. It aims at an intercultural exchange, implying active participation of all members, ensuring the proper management of natural resources, valuation of assets and the cultural and territorial rights of people.
The main idea is to provide a platform for people who are interested in learning about the life of the people in our community and in experiencing our social and cultural environment. You will participate as a special guest in the daily lives of the people in our community.
We invite you to join our community tourism in Unchus Village, located 5 kilometers/20 minutes from the city of Huaraz, east of the Cordillera Blanca. Our goal is to improve the living conditions and maintain the culture of our community through the activities that we offer.

Our project


The project:

Enjoy Community Tourism with the Albino Lliuya family

Here you can experience how native farmers live and you can learn about their life in the community, close to the city of Huaraz.

The activities that are performed are amongst others: traditional agriculture, livestock, adventure tourism, as well as short or long hikes.

Juventino's family offers great hospitality in their home town of Unchus.

About Us:

Juventino Albino Caldua: Works as a professional mountain guide. Moreover, he follows his activities as a farmer in the off-season months, where few tourists visit the Cordillera Blanca.

Dina Lliuya Reyes: Juventino's wife, she is a typical woman from Unchus using very traditional clothing of the region. She speaks the native language, Quechua.
Native Language: Quechua and official Language Spanish

About Accommodation / our house:

We have a very comfortable house with private rooms and shared rooms. It is also possible to camp and do campfires at our place. Moreover, you can do lots of different hikes like for example a day hike to Lake Churup or a visit to the villages of Marian or Wilcahuain and you can do great mountain biking trips in the surroundings.

Things to do or practice with the native farmers in our village

harvest sowing and reaping: potatoes, corn, wheat, oca (potato of the Incas) and quinoa etc.

Livestock/Animals that you can see

Sheep, donkeys, cows, bulls, horses, pigs, guinea pigs, chickens and other.

Typical food in the area

In Unshus we will serve you typical food, like for example Quinoa Soup, Llunca and Pachamanca (a very special meal and tradition of the Incas). This meal is prepared by hand.

First you have to build a stone oven and heat it up for about an hour. Then you put some things in the stone oven like potatoes, yams, tamales, corn, chicken, pork, beef, etc. The last step is to bury everything with earth and let it steam for around an hour.

Traditional Festivals:

April 26: celebration of Easter, tribute to Mr UNCHUS the San Miguel Arcanguel, and October 06: patronal festival with bullfights and fireworks.

During those festivals we eat a lot of guinea pig and other typical dishes of the area and practice our traditional dances.
