Weather-wise, Ica is blessed. Go at almost any time of the year and you’re likely to see only sunny, blue skies. Indeed, it is this arid climate and its geographical position that has also created its harsh, dry landscape, which features sand dunes that reach several hundred feet high. Among the Huacachina sand dunes is one behemoth dune that towers above the rest: Cerro Blanco.

At Kuoda, we can arrange customized Peru tours of the World’s largest sand dunes.  The Huacachina sand dunes stands some 6,817 feet above sea level. Due to the gigantic dune’s mountain-like size and steepness, it’s best to bring a guide along to assist on hikes to the summit. Though the climb starts out fairly easy, it becomes much more challenging nearer the top and the sandy terrain makes the ascent feel tougher than your average hike. The views from the summit, however, are well worth the trek; the stark, almost unearthly beauty, of the desert surrounds can make you feel like you’ve landed on another planet. The summit is also the destination of choice for daredevil sand boarders who want to slide down the almost-half-mile-long run to the base.

At Kuoda Travel, all trips are personally and custom designed for you by one of our travel experts.  Contact us today and get your free Peru trip quote.
