This is a must visit and you should take your time here and enjoy. The views are amazing and it's actually quiet which is nice. There are a number of lookouts to stop and take good photos. We saw snow even though it was December....More

Really great views across the canyon, especially on a sunny cloudless day. I got a tour bus from Chivas and got there pretty quickly.

From this spot you have a wonderful view in the Colca Canyon and the surrounding mountains. It's not so difficult to walk in these areas.

We walked here from Cabanaconde main square, took about 30mins, then we carried on walking stopping there again on the way back to watch the condors. Very peaceful, only met 2 other people and a shepherdess

A little isolated. Take a friend along. Not to far out of town, I walked there. Wear strong shoes or hiking boots -- it's a rocky path to the edge.

Went past here in middle of our hike. Does have a really solid view and a nice spot to take 5-10 minute break.

I think this lookout beats the main one hands down. Apart from being the only one there, the canyon is steep and impressive at this point and (and I know there is some luck here!) I got a great view of 3 condors for a...More

Well You can enjoy the Canyon view there, probably alone as the place is not really popular. 15 min by foot from the town, You need to cross old bullfights ring and old football camp. It's the place where you will start your Llahuar trekking...More
