- Discovered in 1951 by the botanist Ramón Ferreyra, this is, arguably, the last of the native forests in the western slope of Lima's Andes. Native species of trees grow here and the 'sampedro' cactus, with its hallucinogenic powers, grows in abundance. It has an area for camping, there is running water close by from Carnacha stream and a lovely waterfall at the hamlet of Llancha. This natural paradise, is a six and half hour walk from the town of San Bartolomé. The meandering path is narrow, and far from being tiring,it is interesting to see the groups of picturesque villages that appear before your eyes. It is recommended to visit between the months of April to June.
