Cañon del Colca
Colca Canyon, located in the Arequipa region, is one of Peru’s most popular tourist attractions. The chasm is 4,160 meters deep, making it one of the deepest in the world, and more than twice as deep as the Grand Canyon. From the Cruz del Condor viewpoint, it is possible to get a majestic panoramic view of this special place along with the chance to witness the flight of the majestic Andean Condors. This is a great place for practicing adventure sports alongside a surreal view.
