The Pillones waterfalls are one of the most beautiful landscapes in Arequipa. In the middle of the arid desert at more than 4,200 meters above sea level, there is an extensive waterfall of 10 meters high. Around the falls, stones of volcanic origin offer a striking landscape. The place is home to different species of flora and fauna.
The Pillones stone forest, located near the falls, offers a surreal landscape. The rock formations that can be seen there originated thousands of years ago due to volcanic eruptions and wind erosion. The figures of animals, birds, and men stand out and famous structures such as ‘the dimensional portal of Imata.’
