    Mirador del Condor

    Mirador del Condor
    This is a great place to watch for Andean Condors. The best time is early in the morning. If you don't catch a Condor, the trip is not a waste as the views of the canyon at this location is amazing!\

    BTW, is Condor watching consider a Safari? LOL!

    Chivay

    This is often the first town on the Colca Canyon where most visitors stop. The main plaza is lovely and is sourounded by several restaurants and hotels. For those headed to Cusco, there is no need to backtrack to Arequipa for in here you can buy a direct ticket to Cusco.

    Cabanaconde

    This town marks the the end of the line for most visits to the Colca Canyon. There is a lovely church in the main plaza as well as several guesthouses in the area. I even lucked out and got to see a lovely festival for a local saint going on at the main plaza.

    El Mirador de la Cruz del Condor is the narrowest point of the canyon, and the best place to see the incredible depth of it (3,191 mts).

    These viewpoint is visited by most of the tourist, so is very crowded, but is a great place to see the depth of the canyon, and the best place to see the condors.

    The road from Chivay to Colca Canyon’s Cruz del Condor offers some of the most spectacular scenery in Peru. The ancient terracing and soaring Andean Condors are as humbling as they are breathtaking.

    Tunnels

    There are also some fun tunnels you get to go through. There is one you should try to hold your breath in. I tried pretty hard but I couldn't make it. As if I wasn't already oxygen deprived....

    Here is Colca Canyon. It catches my interest for a little while, but after waiting for the condors to come, I get bored.

    The Condor (photo Bart Troost)

    Take your time, sit down and relax when these beautiful birds float past you. Their wings find the raising winds coming from the Canyon. The Condor is indeed the ruler of the Andes.
