Colca Canyon Brief Summary:
The Colca Canyon in southern Peru’s Arequipa region is an area of astounding scenic beauty, and one of Peru’s top tourist destinations. It is best known as one of the world’s deepest canyons, reaching a depth of 4,160 meters (13,640′), whose depth can most easily be appreciated from the Cruz del Condor, a viewpoint where Andean Condors can be seen most days throughout the year. It also offers a vibrant indigenous culture, high-quality handicrafts, and a range of activities from adventure sports to mystical tourism and tourist home-stays. The valley also features an incredible amount of Inca and pre-Inca agricultural terraces and the irrigation systems necessary to operate them.
- Colca Canyon is located at 4 hours from Arequipa city.
- The Colca Canyon is the second deepest in the world.
- Along the way visitors can enjoy unique natural sceneries, as well as animal life; such as herds of Vicuñas (a wild relative of Llamas and Alpacas) and various types of birds, of which stand out the giant hummingbird, eagles, gooses and the mighty Andean Condor.
- Colca Canyon visitors will enjoy passing through a range of unique ecological zones, from desert to altiplano to dry tundra.
- If you like adventure tours, the Canyon also offers wonderful treks down to its bottom, descending throughout huge mountains, exploring oasis-like valleys, thermal springs, and camping outdoors.
