Day 1: Arequipa - Majes Valley - Toro Muerto - Andagua
At 6AM pick up from the hotel in Arequipa and departure to Corire, located at 170KM from Arequipa at 3 hours driving,. Arrive to the Toro Muerto petroglyphs, a volcanic rock area, the result of violent eruptions of the Coropuna and Chachani volcanoes. Consist of carved boulders strewn over hot desert. More than a thousand rocks of all sizes and shapes have been crudely, yet strikingly, engraved with a wide variety of distinct representations. No archaeological remains have been directly associated with these pictures they date from between 1000 and 1500 years ago, largely attributed to the Wari culture, though with probable additions during subsequent Chuquibamba’s and Inca periods of domination in the region. The engravings include images of humans, snakes, llamas, deer, parrots, sun discs and simple geometric motifs. Some of the figures appear to be dancing; others look like spacemen with large round helmets – Obviously potential for the author Eric Von Daniken extraterrestrial musings.
