Really great views across the canyon, especially on a sunny cloudless day. I got a tour bus from Chivas and got there pretty quickly.

From this spot you have a wonderful view in the Colca Canyon and the surrounding mountains. It's not so difficult to walk in these areas.

We walked here from Cabanaconde main square, took about 30mins, then we carried on walking stopping there again on the way back to watch the condors. Very peaceful, only met 2 other people and a shepherdess

Along a beated trail is this view of colca canyon. With no-one else about, it was a fine way to take in the peace of the area. Only a short walk from Cabanaconde.

I agree with EdBS that there are many other places where you can find far better views of the canyon however I liked the short hike from the town to this mirador. Be prepared for sudden weather changes that causing the temperature drop dramatically. Take...More
