We’ll have an early, 5:30am, breakfast at the hotel before heading to Cruz del Condor. Along the way we’ll stop at the Altahuilque and Choquetico viewpoints to see the Colca Valley and some pre-Inca cemeteries. We’ll spend about an hour at Cruz del Condor before heading to the Tapay viewpoint where you’ll be able to see the small villages on the other side of the canyon. We’ll finish the drive around 10:20am in Cabandaconde where we’ll have a snack and prepare for the trek.

The first segment of the trek from Cabanaconde to Oasis de Sangalle at the bottom of Colca Canyon will take about 3 hours. Once in Sangalle you’ll have the rest of the afternoon to relax in the pool before dinner around 6 or 7pm.
