We were headed out to see the Condors at Cruz del Condors and stopped on the way to see the morning dance in the plaza. Colorful costumed locals danced and streets vendors peddled their wares. A nice way to start your Colca Canyon day.

You're not going to visit Yanque just to see the church, but you can get a great photo of the church with the erupting volcano in the background. At the moment the church hasn't been fully repaired and us being supported by wooden poles.

We had to wait our ride here and it was really nice. In the square there are ol ladies selling local stuff, mostly made of lama/alpaca wool. And plus, there's a group of kids in traditional clothes singing and dancing. Also Some ladies with alpacas,...More
