Take a walking tour through the Shanty Town that Haku Tours sponsors! We at Haku Tours want you to see the ‘real Lima’, and how the people of Lima truly live. Take a walk up the famous "yellow stairs" and along narrow cute roads, visit a local kindergarten, silverware factory and the friendly families from this nice community. The town’s huge dimensions and breathtaking views are impressive for any visitor.
Upon arrival, you will be told about security precautions and some basic guidelines to follow while on the tour. While we know ‘shanty towns’ do have a reputation, we want you to feel 100% safe at all times.
While you slowly make your way to the base of the hill, our guide will explain a little about the community and its developments, the urbanization projects, politics, religion and how Haku helps in the area. Gradually, you will begin your journey up the ‘yellow stairs’, pause for a few pictures of the amazing views in greater Lima, get a glimpse into homes, and interact with neighbors and families we meet during this local life experience.
Stopping along the way to take photos of typical homes, see first-hand the smiling children and hard-working families of Lima. You will meet a local craftsman who produces beautiful hand-made silverware and you can even purchase his silverware to support the local community!
On your way down the hill, you will visit a local kindergarten (*not open on weekends but you might meet some of these children while they are playing on the streets), where you have the opportunity to be a part of the local activities, such as volleyball or football, with the local children.
Your adventure awaits!
