TREKKING COLCA :

 

 

To cross the Colca Valley is an interminable sequence of surprises: its’ people, important archaeological sites, pre-Inca terraces, cactus’, churches, beautiful landscapes, typical Andean birds, traditional clothing, etc. The nature there jumps out at you and makes you feel its greatness, presenting the immense Colca Canyon to you, with all of its 3,400 meters of depth and more than 100 km of lengthy. All of it is the domain of the majestic Andean Condor; the mystical symbol of Andean life.

 

DAY 01:

  • 03:00 - 04:00 - Pickup all of the passengers from their respective hotels.
  •  04:30 – We will depart in a shared tourist transport and drive for 5 hours until we arrive to the Cruz del Condor lookout point. From there, we will be able to appreciate the elegant flight of the large condors and we will also bask in the views of the deep canyon and the river far below. Afterwards we will continue to the pueblo of Cabanaconde, where we will have our lunch for the day around noon.
  • We will continue trekking, descending for about 3.5 hours, to get to the Colca River in the center of the valley. We will take a break to rest there by the river. We will still have to trek a bit further though, continuing on to the first hanging bridge of the zone, to then arrive to the pueblo, San Juan de Chuccho. That is where we will spend the night, in some typical style bungalows which are owned by the local townspeople. The guide will take care of the dinner for the group.

 

DAY 02:

  • After breakfast, we will begin trekking again for another 3 hours. Along the way we will visit some pueblos along the way: Malata (which has a Museum) and Cosñirhua. We will be able to learn from the townspeople about their history and way of life.
  • 12:00 hrs – Around midday, we will arrive to the place known as Oasis where we enjoy the swimming pools and the general beauty and quietness of the area. That night we will spend the night in typical bungalows.

06:00 hrs – We will again start to trek, this time ascending for 3 and a half hours to get back out of the valley again. We will eventually arrive to the traditional pueblo of Cabanaconde. That is where we will take a bus to return to Chivay again, making tourist stops along the way.
