Killawasi Lodge, Colca Canyon, Peru
Perched on a ridge looking out towards the canyon on the edge of the pleasant town of Yanque, this small lodge is a great option if you're looking for a peaceful stay in the Colca Valley. Killawasi has only 12 rooms across two floors, all of which are light, spacious and comfortable. Despite their traditional style, the rooms have good quality modern bathrooms and amenities such as Wi-Fi, an iPod dock and a safe with each room having either a good sized terrace or a balcony.
There is a small restaurant with pleasant views into the valley, and hammocks in the garden. Included in the price of a stay here (when staying two nights or more) is a three hour afternoon guided walk through the Colca Valley to the Oqolle amphitheatre and Uyo Uyo archaeological site which finishes at some nearby hot springs (entrance price not included).
