Itinerary – Condor sightings near Cusco

Spectacular excursion to the third deepest canyon in Peru after Cotahuasi Arequipa. We have the CHONTA canyon near LIMATAMBO CUSCO. The Apurímac Canyon belongs to the Cusco and Apurímac regions. Observing gigantic birds in the Andes is the ideal and most breathtaking sight for the sighting Condors around the Chonta community.

We start the tour at 07:00. We head towards the northwest of the city of Cusco until ascending to the plains of Anta and traveling by car to several typical Andean towns such as Poroy, Izcuchaca, Compone, etc. After approximately 1 hour of travel, we arrive at our first tourist visit, the temple of the moon with the aboriginal name of QUILLARUMIYOC.

Quillarumiyoc is a ceremonial center par excellence that contains several ancestral areas, such as Inca roads that lead to different cardinal points. The highlight of the tourist attraction is the temple of the moon, built by the Incas in a natural stone formation and shaped like a crescent with staggered carvings oriented toward the sunrise. Quillarumiyoc is like a salt clock.

We continue the trip to go to the town of Chonta.

After 02 hours of travel, we arrive at the beginning of the adventure and walk to observe condors through the Apurimac canyon.
The walk takes about 35 minutes to reach the fourth viewpoint “between the second and third viewpoint, you can see several condors flying over the canyon and the Andes mountain range.” Also, we have views of Salkantay and parts of Huantay from the beginning of the hike.

RECOMMENDATION: Wear dark clothes to blend in with nature and thus not scare away the giant flying birds of the world. Also, explorers can bring binoculars for a better view. THERE ARE MOSQUITOES; BRING REPELLENT and excellent sunscreen because the tourist area is arid—minimum water is 03 liters per person.
