Colca valley

In a four-hour drive, the Colca valley is reached, a deeply incised valley that characterizes one of the most impressive landscapes with the surrounding, still active volcanoes and the terraces for agricultural use created by the ancestral inhabitants of the Collaguas and Cabanas on the steep slopes.

Numerous archaeological remains testify to a lively life in the region even before the spanish conquest, but the colonial period also had a strong influence, which can be seen in the pretty churches in the villages of the Colca. In the heights surrounding the valley, alpacas in particular are bred to obtain the coveted wool.

The «Cruz del Cóndor» vantage point offers a spectacular panoramic view of the Colca Valley, from where the condor can also be observed in flight in the early morning.
