Early morning drive to an observation point, located between Maca and Cabanaconde, one of the deepest parts of the canyon. Here, you find the perfect spot to look down 1,200 m (3,937 ft) into the canyon at Mirador Cruz del Condor. It’s here that the legendary condor, the bird with the largest wingspan in the world, can be seen rising and circling on the morning thermals, silhouetted against the magnificent backdrop of the mountain scenery.
Afterwards you head to the town of Maca, dominated by the glaciers Sabancaya (5,976 m/19,607 ft) and Hualca Hualca (6,075 m/ 19,600 ft). You will visit its Baroque church considered one of the most original in the region.
You continue to Yanque, once the headquarters of the Franciscan missionaries in the Colca. The church is also one of the most notable in the valley due to its Renaissance base with a Baroque upper level. Your last stop is at the Mirador (lookout point) of Antahuilque, where terraces have the shape of an amphitheatre.
