Full Day
About this activity
Early in the morning you will head for the Valley of Colca. You will get to Chivay village to head to the viewpoint called la Cruz del Condor. You will be a witness of the condor´s magnificent flight. Condors are huge Andean birds in danger of extinction that are considered to be the symbol of the Andes. The visit will allow you to appreciate the whole dimension of the canyon which is considered to be one of the deepest in the world. Upon returning we will enjoy a panoramic view of the villages of Pinchollo, Antahilque, and Choquetico, where we will observe pre-Incan constructions and graves and the impressing landscape. Then you will visit Maca and Yanque villages where there are still some colonial churches. From this point, we will visit the amazing archeological site of Uyo-Uyo, and we will begin our trek, along a path that will take us to Sifón Bridge. Then we will cross the Colca River and climb up to Uyo-Uyo. Its highlight, 60 colorful spherical- and rectangular-stone-built structures of almost 4 meters high. It is believed that the population of this village was dedicated to the use of the terraces as they have a canal starting on the foothills of the snow-capped mountain Mismi, which irrigated their lands. It appears from the documents of those times that the Spaniards forced the natives living in this village to move to the current village of Yanque. The evidence found here belong to Chuquibamba style, although there is also evidence of Inca ceramics. After finishing your trek, we will pick up lunch at a local restaurant. We will make our way back to Arequipa, stopping at several viewpoints in the Pampa Cañahuas national reserve, to observe Vicuñas, Llamas, and Alpacas. In the later afternoon, we will arrive in the city, where we will transfer you to your hotel.
