The Colca Canyon is the fifth deepest canyon in the world (after the Cotahuasi Canyon) at 3200 meters. The principal vantage point in the valley to watch condors in flight is Cruz del Condor where you can see condors flying down from the mountains to the sea every morning.
You need at least three days for a visit to the Colca Canyon to enjoy its enchanting villages, each with its own special characteristics.
