Just a tourist trap!!
You have to pay 70 PES about 18US$ (cash only and you can imagine why) to arrive at this point. It is crowded and only few people are wearing protective facial masks against all rules and regulations. Just a Covid spreading spot. Condors are smart enough not to show themselves.!!

This is an amazing place to visit. Plan in for some extra time, and avoid a hectic day tour from Arequipa if you can, to stay at Cruz del Condor as long as you like. In the morning once the thermals are kicking in is best for visiting. We were lucky that one macho Condor sat down next to the road for us. Lots of small walks to enjoy the place as well.

Always wanted to visit here, since watching Flight of the Condor on the BBC as a youngster.
We arrived around 8am and after around half an hour were lucky enough to be treated the the most amazing sight of the Condors rising on the thermals. At one stage there were 18 of them in flight. Juveniles, adult males and females all in flight and at one stage the gathered crowd were "buzzed" by one, flying about ten feet above our heads.
It's the most amazing sight, they are so graceful and surprisingly easy to photograph because they glide surprisingly smoothly and slowly.
Definitely worth getting there early, though the crowds weren't too bad and everyone gets to see them.

Although you're very likely to see condors at the cross, stopping half a mile short, where this is a mirador, you are much more likely to see some of these magnificent creatures. Getting there before 8am and taking a short hike meant that we had 5 vultures fly above us as we arrived and we saw over 40 in the course of 2 hours, on a beautifully clear day. It really was a case of the early tourist gets the bird!

Obviously the experience depends on weather (thermals), time of day, and time of year. We were given a 70% probability of seeing Condors. We were there for 90 minutes and during that time we had several dozen sightings. Two birds actually landing and resting only yards from where were standing. It was an incredible time. People were shouting and pointing, didn't even have time to focus the camera there were so many. In the end we gave up and just watched and took in the experience. They may be big but because they were mainly down in the canyon or high above you don't get a feel for their true size. What you do notice is how they never flap their wings, they just zoar on the thermals. Don't think you'll be alone. There will be masses of tourists, all competing for the best viewing spots.

Whatever you do, get there early. There's no guarantee you'll see Condors, especially of the weather is not right, but when they start to glide up from the canyon and fly right overhead, you'll be rewarded. When we were there, a coach party arrived about 08:15 and missed most of the 'performance'.

good place. Most tours to colca canyon stop here, so don't go out of your way to get there on your own. Great view of the mountains, I guess some people go and don't see any condors, but we saw about seven so it was good

The scenery is amazing. It was a long slow ride to the cross but well worth it. We saw 5 Condors in all, varying ages. They are beautiful to watch as they glide through the valley. The cross is the ideal place to see them, we had a picnic and it was not busy - we expected it to be, but it was only our trip that were there. That said there is plenty of room to sit and relax around the cross and still have a great view. I have recommended a minimum of 1-2 hours at the cross - not including the journey there. You could easily stay for longer.

The condors are active before ten in the morning, so be there to see these beautiful flying creatures swooping everywhere. You look down into the gorge, which is 1,200 meters to the bottom. Three times the depth of the Grand Canyon in Arizona.
