Andes Lodge is located in the unspoilt village of Yanama, just twenty minutes outside the Huascaran National Park. It offers guests a rare opportunity to experience life in a traditional Andean community and to explore the beautiful countryside in which the lodge is set. Whether you want a relaxing break or are looking for something more active – walking, biking, horse-riding or climbing – Yanama can provide it.
Yanama is twenty minutes from the start of the well-known Santa Cruz trek and one hour from beautiful glacial lakes such Llanganuco, Lake 69 and Lake Ulta. Surrounding the lodge are some of the highest peaks in Peru ranging in altitude from 5495m to over 6000m, including Chacraraju, Contrayerva, Ulta, Chopicallqui and Puca Raju.
The lodge itself offers a comfortable base from which to explore the attractions of Yanama. Set on the edge of the village it offers stunning views of the surrounding mountains from its roof-top terrace. All rooms have orthopedic beds, down duvets and stunning mountain views. It has a quiet garden and comfortable lounge in which guests can relax, read a book or watch a DVD.
Those guests interested in finding out more about the Andean culture can visit artisans at work or help the local community in activities such as sowing and harvesting crops. All guests are welcome to participate in the activities organised by the lodge such as the cooking of Pachamanca - the traditional Andean dish enjoyed by the mountain communities since Inca times.
