Colca Canyon (Full Day)

About Colca Canyon (Full Day)

Salkantay trekkers: Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

General Travel

Its not just the vastness and depth of the Colca that make it so fantastical, its the shifts in its mood. There are more scenery changes along its 100km passage than there are in most European countries; from the barren steppe of Sibayo, through the ancient terraced farmland of Yanque and Chivay, into the steep-sided canyon proper beyond Cabanaconde that wasnt thoroughly explored until the 1980s. Of course one shouldnt turn a blind eye to the vital statistics. The Colca is the worlds second-deepest canyon, a smidgeon shallower than near neighbour, the Cotahausi, and twice as deep as the more famous Grand Canyon in the US. But, more than that, it is replete with history, culture, ruins, tradition and  rather like Machu Picchu  intangible Peruvian magic.
