A small town between Huancayo and Pucallpa which sprung
up and grew when the road connecting these two locations was built. In
fact, the town's main street is actually the road itself (Good old western
style !). The most renowned local attraction is the Owl's Cave (Cueva de
las Lechuzas), a few miles northeast of town, on the road to Pucallpa.
The cave is full of beautiful stalagmites and stalactites with many, many
nearly extinct nightbirds.
