Our first day will be full of surprises. I will pick you up and drive you towards Chivay (3,600m). After this point, we’ll continue towards Cruz del Cóndor (3,800m), which is the perfect place for observing condors. Then, we’ll head to Pampas San Miguel (3,300m), where we’ll begin our trekking adventure. As we descend the canyon, we’ll run into a suspended bridge over the Colca river. We’ll also pass Tapay and San Juan de Chuccho, where we’ll get the chance to stay with local families to learn about their culture.
On our second day we’ll explore Tapay (2,900m) and other enchanting farming villages, like Cosnihura and Malata. Then, we’ll hike to the Sangalle (2,225m) a breathtaking oasis, with crystal clear pools of warm water, where we’ll stay for the night.
Day three will begin climbing the side of the Canyon, until we reach Cabanaconde (3,230m).There, we’ll get a delicious breakfast and return through the valley visiting other lovely towns. Also, pending the time and the group, we could stop at the Calera thermal waters, for a refreshing bath. And after lunch at Chivay, we’ll drive back to Arequipa.
If you are up for this trekking adventure, don’t hesitate and send me a request. It will be my pleasure to guide you across this wonderful place in Peru.
