Three hours up a four donkey wide dirt road from Mala, Peru you will find the one hotel town of Viscas, Peru. Viscas is a producer of fruits (mainly apple). The long twisting road from Mala offers some nerve racking cliff hanger views from your bus or van.

The glacier cold Rio Mala flows below the vast apple orchards that provide jobs for the locals. The Rio is pretty clean here and offers a break from the midday scorching heat of the day.

A room is not guaranteed at the hotel that is mainly used to house the fruit pickers. One restaurant (El Chef) is run by a professional trained chef from Lima, who is trying to steer the town toward tourism.
