Chachani Volcano's, located in Arequipa at 6,057 meters above sea level
The green meadows of Suq'usa
Vinelli was astonished with the amazing beauty of the valley and named it Socosani, because of the abundance of fresh, green reeds. He found there natural mineral water springs flowing from the Chachani Volcano.
In search for the Nature
As the glacier of the Chachani Volcano's, melts from its snowy peak towards the Socosani Valley, the water is naturally filtered and rises to a higher elevation forming the springs of Socosani.
Vinelli sent samples of the water to a lab in France. After analyzing the samples, the French scientists recognized the water as very unique and certified the natural mineral springs of Socosani water.
Socosani over the years
And so, these unique sources of mineral spring water from the Peruvian Andes, discovered more than 100 years ago while Vinelli rode through the Yura desert, today they keep all their properties and purity intact.
