I've read it was the best landscape in Lima province, so we went there camping last weekend: it was amazing! It was extremly cold at night but if you have the appropiate gear or you stay in a house, it'll not be a problem.

Never seen 3D landscape and I must say that Peru has it all. This is Mother Nature at it's finest. Beautiful areas.

Few places in Peru, have this amazing natural beauty & landscape. A little hard to get there (about 8 hours from Lima), but the place is breathtaking. Great for camping, and some outdoors... go between april and november (dry season)
