Getting To and Away

Getting to and away from this sprawling mountainous town is fairly easy, as buses run regularly from both Lima in the north and other small towns to the south. Once or twice monthly, it is also possible to catch the high train to Huancayo from Lima, an epic 13-hour journey through the Mantaro Valley and into the mountains, providing breathtaking views, and stopping along the way at the highest train station in the world.


The following bus companies service Huancayo:

Cruz del Sur: Jr. Ayacucho 281. Tel: 423-2650.

E.T.U.C.S.A: Jr. Puno 220. Tel: 226-524.

Exp Lobato: Jr. Omar Yali 148-158. Tel: 231-892.

Molina: Angaraes 334, Chilca. Tel: 224-501.

TICLSAS Chilca: corner of Ancash and Angaraes.

Turismo Central: Ayacucho 274. Tel: 223-128.

Buses leave Huancayo at the following times:

To Ayacucho (12 hr): Molina (8 a.m., 8:30 p.m. and 9 p.m.; $15). Some buses have bathrooms, others do not, so check ahead to reserve a seat on one that does for a more comfortable trip.

To Huancavelica (5 hr): TICLSAS Chilca has several departures leaving daily. In addition, shared taxis depart for Huancavelica whenever they fill up with four passengers from Calle Real 1241, Chilca. Taking just three hours, this is the quickest way to go.

To Huánuco (7 hr): Turismo Central (9:30 p.m. and 9:45 p.m.).

To Jauja/Concepci├│n (20-30 min/50 min): Minibuses leave regularly from the corner of Jir├│n Amazonas and Avenida Giraldez, or you can catch a colectivo at Calle Calixta 531.

To Lima (6.5 hr): Cruz del Sur (8:30 a.m., 1 p.m., 11 p.m., 11:15 p.m. and 11:30 p.m., $11-28); E.T.U.C.S.A. (8 a.m., 1 p.m. and 8 p.m., $9.50-22.50); Molina (10 p.m., $15); Turismo Central (8:30 am., 1:30 p.m., 11 p.m. and 11:45 p.m.).

To Satipo (9 hr): Exp Lobato (7 a.m., 11 a.m., 9:30 p.m. and 10 p.m.).


If heading onwards to Huancavelica from Huancayo, the best way to go is by train. The station is at Avenida Ferrocarril 461 in Chilca. There are two trains daily, at 6:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. (2 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Sundays), taking four to five hours. Prices vary depending on class
