- Description -

The Colca Valley is an area of astounding Andean beauty, with giant Andean terraces and a deep canyon. A journey to the Colca valley will take you through high Andean plateau, which offers fine views of the Volcanoes of Arequipa.

Day 1: Arequipa – Chivay

Our staff will pick you up from your Hotel at 8:00 a.m. to start our trip to the deepest Canyon in the world. Journey starts at the highway from Yura, passing by the snow-covered Chachani mountain. We will get to try a delicious Coca leaf tea at the Aguada Blanca National Park, habitat of beautiful South American Cameloids (vicunas, alpacas, waris and llamas). Later, at Tocra lake, we will appreciate a variety of migratory birds such as flamencos and also will stop at the panoramic viewpoint (4.800 m) for a great view of the western mountain range from where you can truly appreciate the Pre-Inca farming Terraces / platforms known as “andenerias”. We will get to Chivay at around 13:30 for Lunch and head to the colorful town of Coporaque; this is the starting point for our 2-hour walk. We will enjoy the beautiful landscapes and nature of this side of the valley as well as a pre-Inca cemetery located next to the mountain. This region is mostly made up of Andean communities. At about 17:00 we will enjoy a relaxing time at the hot springs of La Calera. We will have dinner with a folkloric show.


Day 2: Chivay – Cruz del Condor.

After an early breakfast, we will go on 90-min bus ride to the view-point of Cruz del Condor from where you will have a very beautiful view of the Colca Canyon and see several flying condors, some may pass really close to you. Returning to Arequipa, we will see some ruins and Pre-Inca terraces. We will stop in some towns, including the town of Yanque, where we will see its church, its artisan center, and the typical clothing of the people. We will get to Chivay at about noon and have lunch. At about 2 p.m. we will board the bus that will take us back to Arequipa, arriving at about 5 p.m.
