We stopped for the views on the way to Colca Canyon very early in the day, and had sight of Condors flying in the distance, but nothing like those that awaited us. Stop for the view and journey on.

Do not miss this opportunity if you get the chance. Getting to Colca Canyon is a challenge but one well worth it. Get up before the sun rises and up to the canyon and sit quietly awaiting the condors soaring up on the warm thermals...More

We stopped here on our walk back from Cruz Del Condor to Cabanaconde. Inmpressive views into the valley, and you can see 3 small towns in the canyon. It is much closer to Cruz del Condor than cabanaconde.
