We will have lunch and some resting time in San Juan de Chuccho, a village with many fruit trees.

We continue to Cosñirhua and Malata towns (beautiful places with a lot of vegetation, a museum, its very old spanish style church, and very friendly local people). Then it is time to start the descending hike, this time to the deepest part of our trek to reach "Sangalle", a village at the altitude of approximately 1.900 m.a.s.l.
