Colca Canyon / 2 day 1 night trek

8 reviews
Come and enjoy an impressive 2 day trek through one of the deepest canyons in the world. Our guide will show you all the beauties of the valley such as huge birds, beautiful alpacas and vicuñas and more than 79 different types of cactus. Our tour starts very early to be able to arrive on time at the Condor's Cross and watch the condors flying over our heads and follow our route to Cabanaconde from where our adventure begins. Do not miss it and book now. It will be an unforgettable experience!

We came here on our own and just walked around. Having been to Machu Picchu the previous day, it was nice to have a quiet hike without a guide. Overall a really nice site.

These ruins are the remains of a town that was destroyed by the Spanish. We went on a guided hike from Killawasi Lodge (included in the tariff for the lodge). Great views from the top and a very interesting story. Recommended. There is a small entrance fee (5 soles per person). We were the only people there!

This place should become known as a good option to visit because it is not crowded of a lot of typical tourists and the most important thing is that it show us other kind of cultures . I strongly recommend it.

We walked from the Colca Canyon Lodge and it wouldn't have been a big walk had it not been for the altitude. It is only 600m up a steep path but I struggled due to the heat and not being used to the altitude. It is dusty so bring good walking trainers. There is a good view at the top and we had the ruins to ourselves. There is a 5 soles cash payment and some toilets at the entrance (no running water though) The man at the entrance tried to explain some of the ruins to us but we didn't understand Spanish much. It is worth a walk to see it.

My wife and I walked alone from The Killawasi Lodge,across the Colca Valley and up to the ruins and back down. Lovely 2 hour walk with great views of the terracing in the valley. The ruins are a lasting testament to what the Spanish did to local villages. Notices are only in Spanish. If you have transport you can drive to the visitor centre and from there it is only 600 metres on quite a steep path to the start of the ruins. Should cost 5 soles but there was no one there to collect when we went! Worth wearing good walking shoes!
