"La Cobra" (Look at the people down)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

(Made by Mother Nature)This giant rock, like a Cobra, is about 20 meters high and is located at the end of the "Route 1" to about 3 hours away from the town of Canchacucho. It is very impressive. The stone forest Huayllay is considered the "Forest geological largest and highest in the world." Located on the plateau of Bombon, Pasco - Peru Huayllay, is one of the wonders of the world, little is known. Its main attraction ecotourism, are its artistically carved stones and rocks, for 70 million years, without human intervention. There is no other forest in the world that can match geological, by extension, artistic majesty, landscaping and height above sea level. (4,300 m.)
