I was here to complete some project work with a group but it is well worth seeing the different treks and activities that are available in this region as the scenery is stunning.

The tourist photos all brag about the condors but we saw about a half dozen and they weren't that close. That's okay because wildlife is wildlife. But the scenery is absolutely stunning. Our mini bus dropped us off well before where all the other buses...More

Colca Canyon is an amazing place to explore. The views from the various lookouts, including Condor's Cross, gives you amazing views of the deepest canyon in South America, and second deepest canyon in the world. Tip 1: Seeing Condors are not guaranteed. We noticed many...More
