    Colca Canyon

    October 6, 2016 in Peru ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Colca Canyon is the second deepest canyon of the world and close to Arequipa. Towards the Colca Valley there were several spots to take incredible pictures; for exemple the "Mirador de los Andes", a famous volcanic panoramic viewpoint at a height of 4800m above sea level!

    In the afternoon relaxing in the local hot springs was on our programm; while having dinner we were accompanied by a folkloric show and Chrigi was forced to partake! ;-)

    In the early morning of the second day we went to "Cruz del Cóndor", where we could see Andean Condors flying above us! What majestic birds! On the way back, farming platforms (terraces) made the trip unforgettable.
