While we only saw 2 condors over ninety minutes this was a beatiful place to sit and enjoy the beauty.

If you're around the area and can get to finding a spot before late morning, you may be able to spot the condors in flight. Definitely need a lens longer than 90mm, probably 200mm, with autofocus tracking. There were 3 condors warming up before taking...More

We were told we might not see much, but on the day we were there quite a number of the Andean Condors were in flight - I think I counted about 15 at one point. Well worth the trip from Arequipa - which itself was...More
