The view is amazin, and the best part is that you don't have to many people there. We went there quite late, around noon, and the only other people over there was a family. You can see the greatness of the canyon... it's breathtaking! We even saw a condor for a couple of minutes.

If you are traveling to Cabanconde, you may consider stopping at this place. It's a roadside viewpoint. Possible that you condors passing while you see the canyon and Tapay.

Do not miss this opportunity if you get the chance. Getting to Colca Canyon is a challenge but one well worth it. Get up before the sun rises and up to the canyon and sit quietly awaiting the condors soaring up on the warm thermals rising from the canyon - a truly magical experience.

You will be able to take great photos and breath the pure air. Nice point to take it all in for a moment. There are few others like this; do them all.

We stopped here on our walk back from Cruz Del Condor to Cabanaconde. Inmpressive views into the valley, and you can see 3 small towns in the canyon. It is much closer to Cruz del Condor than cabanaconde.
