Day 01 : Cruz del Condor
Arequipa – Colca Valley Early departure towards the highlands passing through Yura-Pampa Catahuas and La Pulpera with good possibility of observing groups of wild vicuñas and fighting cattle. Stop en route to see petrogliphs in the Caves of Mollepunco and in the town of Callali to see natural hill formations with the appearance of enchanted castles. Drive to La Calera to enjoy the thermal baths under the stars. Return to Chivay for overnight.
Day 02 : Cruz del Condor – Arequipa
we will have breakfast very early in the morning and leave to the famous “Cruz del Condor”. Arriving there, we have plenty of time to enjoy the great view of the deep canyon and (if the weather permits) of the majestic Condor in its natural habitat.
After some time, our guide will take you for a short walk near the Canyon (aprox. 1 hour). On our way back to Chivay we’re going to visit the traditional village of Pinchollo and the “Antahuilque viewpoint” where we can gaze at the wonderful 1500 year old terraces constructed by the Collaguas, an ancient culture before the Inca’s time. We will also make a small stop at the look-out point of “Choquetico” with its hanging tombs. Then, we continue our trip to the small Andean community Maca and the village of Yanque with the most beautiful church in the whole valley.
We will stop for Lunch in Chivay before taking the way back to Arequipa. Arriving there around 05:00 pm, you will be transferred to your hotel.
