This has been one of my favourite places in Peru so far! If you are fit and speak some Spanish, you don't need to book yourself on any expensive tour and enjoy the true Colca Canyon trekking. I have started my trip in Arequipa, where...More

One of the big highlights of our trip and up there with Machu Picchu. The weather in Arequipa and Colca was perfect. The landscape in Colca was rugged and magestic. We saw plenty of Condors. We stayed at the Colca lodge, loved the hot springs.
