Explore the Inter Andean valleys and beautiful scenery with this Tarata & Ticaco Day Trip from Tacna. You'll also experience the Putina thermal baths.
Tarata & Ticaco Day Trip
At 8 am we'll pick you up from your hotel in Tacna and board a bus to the province of Tarata. After an hour journey, we'll ascend up to 3500 metres (11500 ft) above sea level to visit the Apacheta lookout. Here we'll discover the contrasting landscape around the region including the inter Andean valleys, the Yucatamani volcanoes, Tutupaca and the Cordillera del Barroso mountain range.
We'll head back to the bus to visit the Tarucachi, a colonial church which has many similarities with the Tarata church. As we head inside you'll see the colonial mestizo style decoration with natural dyes, a beautiful interior which is barely known.
Next, the tour will arrive in Tarata, where we'll walk to the main square and church. We'll carry on to the Santa Maria Inca trail, from which we'll admire Tarata's stunning scenery and the Qala Qala caves, a sacred place for the people of Tarata.
At 1 pm we'll visit Tarata where you'll have time to have lunch, and then we'll continue on to Ticaco.
Once we arrive, we'll witness the remarkable views from the Corojollo Lookout, the church and then the Putina thermal baths (entry not included). In this magnificent natural area, you'll enjoy the baths at your leisure. Make the most of its relaxing environment after a day of exploring!
The tour will end back at Tacna at 5 pm.
