Overview – Colca Canyon & Trip to Puno 2 Days Tour
Our Colca Canyon & trip to Puno 2 Days Tour is a fantastic journey that takes you throughout the Andes till the cliffs of one of the deepest Canyons on Earth.
Day 1°: Day 1º: Bus ride to the Colca Canyon – Overnight at the Colca Valley.
Our guide will pick you up from your hotel in Arequipa. Afterwards we join a group of tourist on a bus and start our trip.
On route we will stop at Pampas Cañahuas (3500 m/11,482 Ft), a National Reserve where visitors may spot Vicuñas.
Unlike the llamas or Alpacas camels, Vicuñas are wild animals, and you can still see them running freely on these high plateaus.
Following an ascending road we will arrive at the zone of Viscachani, where we stop to stretch our legs and drink a coca tea or use the restrooms.
Afterwards we will continue ascending a dirt road till we reach the highest point of our trip, The lookout point of the Andes (4,800 m)
At the highest point of the road, we will get off the bus for some minutes to observe at the distance the volcanoes of Arequipa.
Among them we can see the volcanoes Ubinas, Mismi, Misti, Chachani, Sabancaya (active) and Ampato.
Later on we will drive downhill to the main village of the Colca Canyon, a little town called Chivay (3600 m / 11.811 Ft)
In Chivay we will have lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch we will go to our hotel.
Late, in the afternoon, you have free time to explore by yourself the little village of Chivay.
Before the sun sets we will visit the thermal pools of Chivay, where we can relax a bit. (Water temperature is 35° C / 95º F)
Afterwards we will return to the hotel.
By night we visit a local restaurant where we can taste a delicious Andean dinner.
At the restaurant we can also enjoy live Andean music and typical dancing.
Overnight at the Lodge Pozo del Cielo, located near the Colca River.
2° Day: Early visit to the Cruz del Condor – Bus to the city of Puno.
We leave the hotel early in the morning, soon after breakfast.
Today we will visit the popular lookout point called Cruz del Condor.
The bus ride to the Cruz del Condor takes 2 hours. The road offers great views of the Colca River and the surrounding mountains.
We will make some stops for photos along the way. After some time we will reach the zone known as Cruz del Condor.
The reason we visit this lookout point so early is because at the site one can easily see Condors flying over the canyon.
The condors usually fly over the zone during the morning, so it will easy to spot them while we are there.
In addition visitors will have also time to walk along the edge of the canyon and take great photos.
Eventually, we will return to the village of Chivay, passing through typical villages on route.
At around 12:00 hrs, we will stop at a local restaurant for lunch.
Finally we will take a tourist bus to the city of Puno.
The trip to Puno takes 4 hours and offers fine views of little lagoon located along the road.
Upon your arrival in Puno, our driver will take you to your hotel.
