If you’re a nature loving yogi and want to deepen your spirituality to become more centered and present, then join Carola Trassl for a transformational yoga and hiking retreat to Peru’s most spectacular mountains.

Imagine waking for daily morning yoga and meditation to the sights of the Peruvian Andes, heading out for a brisk hike after a home cooked, local breakfast, and then settling into your cozy, mountain room to journal and just be.

The charming Churup Mountain Lodge and the surrounding Cordillera Blanca mountain range is the perfect place to experience daily yoga classes, meditation, and hiking trips to gorgeous high altitude lakes and valleys.

Perhaps you’ve been feeling stressed, scattered, overwhelmed with life, or have forgotten who your true self is. With guidance from Carola’s yoga, meditations and workshops, you will learn how to center yourself, find the stillness within and experience the peace of being truly aware of the present moment. Walk away from this retreat feeling ready to approach daily life with ease, inner peace and a deeper awareness of yourself.

Relax and enjoy the gorgeous natural scenery while experiencing a deeper presence and being connected to your true self.

This retreat offers the ultimate combination of the spiritual inward journey of yoga with the outward journey of hiking and travel in the gorgeous Peruvian Andes. It’s just what you’ve been looking for to recenter yourself, reconnect with your body, mind and spirit and to deepen your spirituality and yoga practice.

Travel Details

Churup Mountain Hotel is situated a 40 minute drive from the city of Huaraz, heading east towards the Huascaran National Park. We are nestled between the gorges of Cojup and Quilcayhuanca.


You must have a current passport to travel to Peru.


  • The nearest international city is LIMA (LIM Airport Code).



Bus travel is relatively cheap and an easy way of travelling from Lima to the Cordillera Blanca. When visiting Huaraz, we recommend that you go with Cruz Del Sur or Movil Tours bus operators direct. A good option is to choose the overnight bus from Lima arriving early the following morning to Huaraz.


There are currently only flights on Tues, Thurs & Sat, departing from Lima to Anta airport with LC Peru. Flights take 45 mins & cost on average around US120 return depending on availability. Upon arrival at Anta airport  (ATA Airport code) we can have a prearranged private taxi collection waiting to take you directly to the hotel. Due to variable weather, we only recommend using this service from May to September.
