THE COLCA CANYON (2 DAYS) - Peru

FULL PACKAGES DETAILS

Location: Colca Canyon, Chivay
Starting / Ending Point: Your hotel or hostel in Arequipa
The Colca Canyon, with more than 1 kilometer separating the cliff-edges from the river bottom, is considered to be the deepest canyon in the world. It has picturesque pre-Inca terracing, impressive scenery and friendly Indian villages (e.g. Chivay) with traditionally dressed peasants. And if you are lucky, you will be able to see the famous Peruvian Condors just a couple of meters from a good lookout point.†

On the first day of our program, at approximately 8:00 a.m. you will be picked up from your hotel to travel to the Colca Canyon. While you are traveling, you will see wonderful landscapes, beautiful terraces and snow-capped mountains. You will also pass through reserves where vicuŮa (Peruís national animal) live. At about 1.00 p.m. you will arrive at Chivay where you will continue your trip to the thermal baths of Calera (which are situated 15 minutes away from the village). After a good soak, you will return to your accommodation in Chivay. In the afternoon you will have the chance to visit the artisanís market of the village.

 The next day we will get up early and after breakfast we will visit the Mirador (Lookout) of the Condor. At this lookout point you can enjoy the Colca Canyon and hopefully see the impressive Andean condors flying here. Before returning along the same route, you can have a look at the Pre-Inca tombs that are hidden in the various mountains. You will visit the Litomaquetas, the clock tower of the terraces and you will stop in each of the following small villages for about 20 minutes: Pinchollo, Maca and Yanque. On our way back we will pass by Chivay again and then continue to Arequipa.†
