4 Hours Of River Trip Next Of Arequipa

Chili River is located between to colossal volcanoes as known as Misti and Chachani in Arequipa, the southern east of Peru territory. The river flows from the high Andes of Arequipa and the border of Cusco and Puno, there are mountain range and lakes from where drain the cold water (8°C) into the National Reserve of Aguada Blanca y Salinas, them the river goes down to Chilina Valley, Arequipa city and finally the river cut the dries desert between the Uchumayo and the Pacific Ocean.
The Chili River irrigate all the valleys like Chilina, Vitor and Chilca, where is the encounter with ocean. During the raining season (Dec-March) the river increase the level of water making dangerous for river rafting lovers. Before the founding of Arequipa in 1540 by the Spanish, the native inhabitants of this region, mainly farmers, lived in intimate relationship with nature, especially with the river, which they considered a deity.
Thanks to the crystal clear waters you can go rafting and kayaking - The benefits of the Chili river offers rapids for beginners and people who do not have much time to practice this sport outdoors with breathtaking views of the neighboring volcanoes Misti and chachani - It's a great experience for nature and adventure lovers. I welcome the adventure of the river valley of Arequipa, better known as the Chili River – “Chili in Aymara language means rattle for the sound it makes when the river drag stones or the zig-zag passage through the mountains”.
