DAY 1: CUSCO – QUILLARUMIYOC – TARAWASI – CANYON OF THE CONDOR – CUSCO
We will pick you up at the hotel at 08:00, from where we will travel to the Limatambo area. The road to Limatambo is in excellent conditions, and the trip will only take us around 2 hours. Along the way, we will do a guided visit of two very important archeological complexes KILARUMIYOC (Temple of the Moon and Fertility), and TARAWASI (Tambo Inca). We will resume our trip to the “Huayronca” bridge, from where we will ascend up a narrow road to the town of Chonta (3,400 meters above sea level). There will be some interesting stops along the way, where we will get to snap some pictures of the picturesque landscapes and the colossal Salkantay peak. We will have lunch in Chonta.
After a short break, we will hike for 1.5 hours until we reach the lookout at the Canyon of the Condor (3,350 meters above sea level). From this spot, we will witness the majestic flight of the King of the Andes in its natural habitat. We will have to wait until the condors are flying back to their nests, a spectacle during which we will be delighted with the flight of these beautiful birds and we will get to see male and female condors, as well as their chicks. The experience has an estimated duration of three hours.
Once the sighting is finished, we will return to the camp in the town of Chonta to enjoy dinner and get a good night’s sleep.
DAY 2: CANYON OF THE CONDOR – CUSCO
We will return to the lookout early in the morning to watch the condors leave their nest. Afterward, we will head back to Chonta for breakfast before returning to Cusco.
