Colca Canyon

This is reputedly one of the deepest canyon in the world, averaging 3140m for the stretch between the mountain villages of Chivay and Cabanaconde, almost twice as deep as the more renowned Grand Canyon in the States. Cabanaconde(3280m) seen here just behind is a convenient place to start the hike to the bottom of the canyon. Descending for about 1,000m the hike is steep at parts but is not difficult and the trail is wide and easy to follow. Colca river which gouges out this spectacular landscape however, is not that spectacular. There are several villages near the bottom where simple lodgings are offered. The villages seemingly perching onto the opposite hillside precariously are Cosnirhua (2,660m) and Tapay (2,800m) respectively.
