The District Lurigancho – Chosica is east of the city center in the valley of the River Rimac and is the second largest district of Lima. It's "capital" is Chosica. Since the Trans-Andean railroad was built in the 19th century Chosica was a fashionable place for resting and partaking in leisure activities.

At that time, many aristocratic families from Lima made the place their holiday home. And still today Chosica is a popular get away for Limeños in the winter months.

Contrary to Lima the climate is dryer and warm with sunny days throughout the year. Lurigancho – Chosica has some beautiful countryside areas, numerous recreational centers, well-known clubs and campsites. If you need a great place to get out of foggy, polluted Lima and enjoy yourself pay a visit to this area. Chosica is also the gateway to the Andes from where trekking and cycle excursions to San Pedro de Casta, Marcahuasi and Cataratas de Palacala start.
