Our destinacions are the german and austrian colonies!

Unfortunately, these places are not visited frequently – still a sleeper though!

Apart from it’s interesting historical background, this area has many other attractions to offer.

Austrians and Germans already settled down here in 1859. According to a road sign, Pozuzo calles itselve “la única colonia Austro – Alemana del mundo" – “ the only austrian-german colony of the world”. Their descendents still keep various traditions alive but many lost their native language.

They adapted to the primval forest conditions and i.e., modified their appel pie into a banana pie. Their main economic activity is cattle farming,

The valley, surrounded by wonderful virgin forests, is located in Pozuzu /Oxapampa province and lies 700 mtrs above sea level. The distance from Lima is 460 km.

Our journey leads us through the 3 different zones of Peru: Coast, highlands and jungle, the national park Yanachaga-Chemillen. The way to Pozuzo leads through this National Park Here one can observe the outstanding landscape of the deeply cutted Huancabamba canyon.

The National Park covers 122000 ha and is located on the “ Yanachaga Hights”, that separate the Pozuzo-Oxapampa and Palcazu valleys.

A part of the Peruvian jungle forest is protected here and so are it’s biological treasures

The National Park Yanachaga-Chemillen can be reached via Oxapampa or Palcazu

The locals realized for long that Enduro Motorbikes are the best form of  getting around,.

The gravel tracks ask for experienced pilots – nothing for beginners!
