There were 100s of people there but the viewing area is spread out along the canyon so it is easy to see the condors. The setting is spectacular but it is the birds you go to see. At one stage I counted 14 in the...More

We were very fortunate to see many condors. We left Chimay by 6:30 AM to get out here mid morning. Our guide told us the condors come out with the sun so I’d plan on an early morning arrival for the best opportunity. That being...More

This is the main viewing area to see the Condors fly. Lots of different viewing areas spread out from the area of the cross, so even when busy there are lots of places to line up for the perfect photo. We arrived around 8.00am and...More

This is the prime place along the canyon, and every tourist stops here. During rush hour, hundreds upon hundreds. The condors know it too and don't show anymore.

You can go by yourself from Cabanaconde by bus ( at 7 a.m from la plaza) the prize is 3 S. The condors show up around 8 o’clock until 9.30/10 a.m. They’re beautiful and they fly really close to you. You can’t miss it !!!

Although we were dropped off at a location about 45 minutes stroll away, we could see this cross and knew this was where we needed to head. It was a lovely walk and a great achievement to end up here where so many other tourists...More

This is where most people end up when visiting Colca Canyon, hence can be busy and touristy. The view from Condor's Cross is fantastic, however there are also a lot more less crowded lookouts and vantage points along the way. On the day we went,...More

This canon the very tip of which we visited to see condors, is deeper at its far end than the Grand Canyon but reaching this bit is a long and arduous hike. The more touristy bit we visited is as you would expect, steep, rocky...More

The hint is in the name and though people go there and don't get any sightings we were fortunate and managed to see a couple of the giant birds in their natural habitat. Believe me it beats watching paint dry or waiting for pandas to...More
