Bosque de Rocas de Huayllay
About Bosque de Rocas de Huayllay:
The Bosque de Rocas (or "Stone Forest") near the village of Huayllay is a beautiful geological formation containing thousands of rock pillars spread over several kilometers. Just wandering through the mazelike formation is amazing.
The pillars average 20m in height and the quality of the rock is simply excellent. Bouldering possibilities abound (mostly flat landings on grass), toproping is possible in many places, leadable routes are sparse as there has been little route development. Be prepared to be creative and adventurous.
Get to know the people who live near where you camp, they will help you protect your gear and know a lot about the area. There are hot springs to bathe at on the road to Huayllay.
