Rafting in Apurímac River


The river is included in the world rafting list due to its great depth and its rapids. It starts at approximately 2 700 m.a.s.l. (8 858 f.a.s.l.) at Cúnyac bridge, close to Mollepata (Anta), and descends through incredible landscapes and canyons with depths of over 3 000 meters (9 800 feet), finally concluding in the Cconoc hot springs, in Curahuasi (Apurímac). The river is located within the Salkatany mountain chain, one of the most beautiful in the world.
