Crossing the left bank and, on the right bank, the willkamayu canyon (sacred river), both rivers flow many torrents that carved and sculpted one of the most beautiful and spectacular landscapes of the Andean region.

This territory has a multitude of microclimates, a landscape of high snow-capped peaks with more than 6000 m.s.s.m., passing through high Andean plateaus until reaching an endless cloud forest or jungle eyebrows.
