Huancabamba Things to See and Do

follow us

Huancabamba’s most famous attraction is the Lagunas de las Huaringas, nationally and internationally renowned for its curanderos, or shamans. However, the entire region abounds with things to do and see, with much of it still undeveloped. Pre-Columbian ruins and waterfalls paint the countryside around quaint villages like Sondorillo and Sondor. For those with their own gear and experience, paragliding and rock climbing are sports that will get your adrenaline pumping. You can also trek to the area's lagoons, Cascadas de Sipán, Infiernillo and Pariacaca. In town, don’t miss the tourism office’s Museo Mario Polío Meconi, or the Jardín Botánico de Plantas Medicinales (Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-noon. Granja CIPA, near Pronamach and the hospital. Admission: free). For a unique experience, you can hang out with the locals watching soap operas on the public TV posted in Plazuela de los Héroes (daily 7 p.m.-midnight, extended viewing when there is a soccer game on the tube).
