I am Ludwig (Luy) Betalleluz After many years of having worked as a trekking guide in Colca Canyon I decided to establish in Cabanaconde in 2006. I chose Cabanaconde for its beautiful landscapes, quitness and mainly for plenty trekking posibilities. I open the Hostel in a rented house for many years till I bought it and build it in 2010. Pachamama Home was made mainly to encourage trekkers to explore Colca Canyon on their own and get a different experience which it involves more the local economy. I have also opened new trekking routes and biking tours in the area. Nowadays, I do photography and shared my photos in the hostel. I am also in charged of doing the bike tours and new trekking options.Check my Photos and Videos here:

The room was really comfortable, the pizzas are really good, and you can shower back here at the end before getting the bus. Thanks Ludwig! Really recommend.”
