More Information

What is the best time to travel to the Colca?

It is the same as the Andean highlands and, therefore, similar to the climate of the city of Cusco. To begin with, it can be said that the Colca canyon can be visited at any time of the year, however, between March and June would be the best months to visit the Colca Canyon, as temperatures tend to be more pleasant during the day, and at night it gets cooler.

How long is the travel time from Arequipa to Colca Canyon?

From Arequipa to the Colca Valley is 150 km, which with stops becomes 4.5 hours.

Colca Canyon altitude?

The highest point during the Colca Canyon visit reaches approximately an altitude of 3340m or 10950 ft

What other attractions can we find on the Colca Tour?

Apart from the main sights of the Colca there are many other activities and attractions to do that are not often talked about, for example:

  • Laguna de la Mucurca (4350 m): you have to go in a 4×4 van. It offers a magnificent panorama between the Hualca-Hualca, Sabankaya and Ampato volcanoes, as well as the chance to see many birds, including pink flamingos.
  • The ruins of Kallimarca: is a pre-Inca religious archaeological site located 1h20 from Cabanaconde. They offer fantastic views over the agricultural terraces, the village of Cabanaconde and the Hualca-Hualca volcano.
  • The ruins of Uyo-Uyo: this abandoned village overlooking the valley was the capital of Colca. You can then head to the abandoned village of Uyo-Uyo, which was the capital of the Colca. There are ruins of the Collagua and Inca cultures, as well as remains of their irrigation system.
  • The Chimpa Fortress: is a pre-Inca fortress built by the Collagua people, strategically located and hidden in the beautiful landscape. It can be reached by a 2 h-3 h climb.
  • The Hualca-Hualca volcano (6025 m): it is possible to climb by trekking, only for experienced hikers!
  • Church of Lari: called the “cathedral” of Colca, it is a beautiful baroque building from the 18th century.

Will we see condors on the Colca Canyon tours?

The Colca Canyon is the best place in South America to see the Andean condor and during our tours we will visit different viewpoints to increase the chances of having the experience of seeing them up close.

Visiting the Colca Canyon in 2 days

If your itinerary allows it, it is much better to do the Colca Canyon in two days, sleeping one night on site (either in Yanque, Chivay or Cabanaconde).

And if you want to make a direct connection Puno City – Lake Titicaca after the Colca Canyon, you also have this option of 2 days in the Colca with transfer to Puno. It is perfect for not having to return to Arequipa city!
