My Arequipa Experience

How was my experience at the Canión del Colca? One of the largest canyons in the world

We made the first stop in the town of Chivay at 6 am where we enjoyed our breakfast in a small restaurant.

We then continued immediately to the village of Yanque where the tour guide taught us about the story of the natives who still inhabit these hills.

From here we went to the cross of the condor natural where we appreciated the depth of the Colca Canyon and where you can observe the wonderful flight of the condor. From this viewpoint, you can also contemplate the beautiful valley of the canyon mixed with the vegetation.

We returned to Chivay and made stops in the most important places like the mysterious lagoons of Altahuilque. Then we visited the church of the traditional village of Maca.

Returning to the route we made a guided stop in Patapampa (4910m) also called Mirador de los Andes and in the National Reserve of Salinas and Aguada Blanca where the vicuña is observed in its natural habitat.
