Reasons to Visit

Colca Canyon

The Colca Canyon is considered to be one of the world's deepest canyons and home to the Andean Condor. There is no better place to watch these majestic birds than from the Cruz del Condor, where they can be seen frequently at close quarters. Snow-cappped mountain peaks on either side frame the magnificent scenery, which is in places green and almost tropical, in others rocky and precipitous. The local Colca people still cultivate terraces along the canyon walls in many places, and many traditional towns and villages can be found all along the length of the canyon. The small, unpretentious town of Chivay is undoubtedly the most important in the area, found on the upper part of the river where the canyon is not so deep.
