Our tour begins with the picking up of passengers at their hotel in Ica
then to go by the Pan American Highway, running for 30 minutes the
southern Ica Valley crops planted in different traditional and modern,
such as cotton, potatoes, corn, grapes, lima beans, asparagus, peppers,
broccoli and various fruit trees. We will pass through different towns
and villages, as the Tate district famous for the story that was raised
here, including the Inca Pachacutec and the beautiful princess
Chumpillalla that gave rise to the construction of irrigation canal
known as the Inca Achirana.
After 30 minutes you will come to the slopes of Cerro Blanco in Ocucaje
and we will start our trekking (hike) through the desert in search of
our first fossil, because that site is part of a complex reservoir
strata in the Central Coast with antiques ranging from 45 million years
ago to just over 2 million years, our feet will sink into a strange
accumulation of layers of mostly sandy and clayey sediments, which
buried bodies of various animals as many of the marine environment land.
Appreciate the beautiful scenery Bad lands, the name given by
paleontologists to desert these whimsical forms submitted to intense
erosion by the wind, if we are lucky we can find shark teeth, remains of
turtles, crocodiles, whales and other animals.
After the walk we return to our car, out of Cerro Blanco and head north
to Middle White Hill, also called "The Cangana" where a small walking
tour can find up to 4 skulls Mysticeti (baleen whale). After 30 minutes
of this field trip we go on our mobility Cerro Blanco South known as
"Cerro La bruja" to appreciate the nearly complete fossil of a whale
with her baby.
On the way back to the city of Ica, we will appreciate the beautiful
countryside and especially Ocucaje vivendus modus of the villagers and
we can share some impressions with them if possible. (BOX LUNCH)
