Piura is not just beaches. Four of the eight provinces in this region form the Piura highlands. Places hardly visited, but with an enormous scenery beauty which, due to their geographic location and altitude, have semi-tropical characteristics. One of those beautiful places is the small and cosy town of Canchaque, also known as the Switzerland of Piura because of its exuberant vegetation and sloping streets.
To get to Canchaque you need to travel along some agricultural valleys and spectacular forest clusters of ceibos and orchids. The road from Piura takes three hours and allows a comfortable, safe and enriching journey, thanks to the joint work of the team of Concar, the Graña y Montero Group company dedicated to infrastructure operations.
Throughout the route, you can visit the towns of Buenos Aires, Malacasi and Serran until you reach Canchaque, a district rich in orchids and coffee plantations. Precisely, the coffee of Canchaque is one of the best valued by the visitors of the city due to its rich flavour and aroma.
There are several tourist attractions that can be seen in Canchaque: the Peroles (Cauldrons) of Mishahuaca, characterized by their crystalline waters that fall from the height of the hills and form lagoons in the form of a saucepan ; the Peroles de Agua Blanca, surrounded by natural toboggans; and next to the Plaza de Armas of the city, a suspension bridge full of vegetation, among other beautiful places.
This trip interconnects destinations and, above all, offers experiences in an almost unknown beautiful area of Peru
