In a breathtaking setting high in the Andean foothills, this cozy lodge accesses more than 80 km (50 miles) of hiking trails that offer a glimpse of Andean life that few tourists will ever see. It's operated by Mountain Lodges of Peru, the same company that runs the luxury lodge-to-lodge trek on the Salkantay trail in the Cusco area. Earth-toned stone and wood buildings are perched on a ridge with sweeping views of green valleys below, especially from the restaurant, which
serves a mix of Novo Andina and international plates utlizing local produce. Rooms have a comfortable, alpine-cabin feel, with stone walls and wood-beam ceilings.
