Colca Canyon

Coporaque Tour

2 Day Vivencial Tour offers a trip to discover Coporaque town which has the valley’s oldest church and offers splendiferous views of the canyon covered in terraced fields. Coporaque is a cute, chill town about two hour’s hike from Yanque town. People are relaxed and friendly and you are never more than a five minute walk from a great view of the valley. This is a good town to stay in if you want to experience the Colca Valley surrounded by locals, rather than tourists places.
