All fun in Viņak: the adventure spot in the highlands of Lima

 
Twitter can be a lot of things. Your source for the joke of the day, your 140-character horoscope, where you can get live updates from the protest halfway across the world, or the football match you’re unable to catch on TV.
 
It can be a major distraction or the connective tissue to what’s going on in the world. And sometimes, it’s how you get inspired to take a little weekend trip far, far away from the city.
 
When Gabriel Alvarez tweeted he had just been biking for three hours in Viñak, I had to find out more about this place and make it a priority to visit. “Loved every minute of it!” he tweeted about his weekend getaway.
 
The details:
 
Viñak, or Viñac, is located 3,190 meters above sea level and is one of 33 districts of the province of Yauyos, which is located 280 kilometers from Lima. It’s about five hours away from the capital by road. Going south on the Panamericana, “you take a left turn at km 132 in Cañete, and drive past Lunahuana, Pacaran and Zuñiga, until the San Jeronimo bridge, where you take a U turn in the first entrance, driving forth another 40 km,” indicates Carlos Conan Muñiz in his blog Pura Aventura. He also recommends going on a 4×4, as halfway through the trip the asphalt road ends.
 
Viñak is a lusciously green town, surrounded by hills and home to fertile land that produces potato, oca, lima beans, barley, and wheat. The local cheese is also not to be missed. Indeed, the local cuisine consists of hardy and tasty meals like pachamanca you’ll enjoy after the day’s adventures.
 
The town has around 500 citizens, with a total of around 2,000 in the district. In the higher altitudes you’ll see sheep, alpacas and llamas.
 
The Refugio Viñak is the major lodge that receives most visitors to the area. The lodge sits atop a crest overlooking the valley. It can receive up to 36 guests, and counts on the perfect accommodations for a weekend getaway: dining room with panoramic views, a modern take on Andean cuisine, outdoor hot tub and fire pit, indoor fireplaces, and offers guides and outdoor activities. Visitors are able to ride on horseback, bike down one of the many downhill mountain bike routes, or opt to hike a 12-hour llama trek.
 
Think about escaping the morning drizzle and chilly nights one of these weekends and head to Viñak where adventure and sun awaits.
