A tour of the condors in Chonta Canyon is one of the best nature tours you can do in Cusco, which is located in the canyon of the Apurimac River in the Chonta community.

What to expect?

Cusco – Killarrumiyoc – Tarawasi – Chonta Canyon – Cusco

  • Our trip begins with your pick up in Cusco at 7 am. Then we’ll continue in the direction of Limatambo. During the tour we will visit two beautiful and interesting archaeological centers, Killarrumiyoc and Tarawasi, which were possibly used as astronomical observatories by the Incas. We will continue to the village of Limatambo, where we will have lunch at a local restaurant.
  • The adventure begins with a panoramic view of the Chonta community and the snowed mountain of Salkantay and Humantay. After walking for an hour and a half, we will finally reach the viewpoint of Huaco, which is located on the right side of the canyon of the Apurimac River.
  • We will have a spectacular view of the Apurimac Canyon, and we will have the opportunity to appreciate the impressive Andean condors in their natural habitat. The condor is the largest flanking bird of prey in the world, considered a bird sacred by the Incas. With some luck, we can also observe some birds like eagles, hawks, and also white-tailed deer.
  • After visiting and enjoying this beautiful trip, we will return to Cusco around 8 pm.
