Carved over millennia by the meandering Colca River, this canyon stands as one of the world’s deepest. The region surrounding it is characterized by towering cliffs, terraced hillsides, and emerald-green oasis villages.
Embark on guided hikes through the rugged terrain, encounter the soaring Andean condors in their natural habitat, and learn about the rich history of the local Collagua and Cabana communities.
The best time to visit is during the dry season, from April to October when the weather conditions are most favorable.
The Colca Canyon is a great stopping point on a journey from Arequipa to Lake Titicaca.
