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, there were words of travellers waiting for the condors to arrive. They didn't. We were lucky enough to have a well informed and connected guide, who made a few calls and found us another location where we managed to see 6 condors perching (and then taking off and flying) from approximately 20 metres away. Wow!!!
Tip 1: Take a short walk down one of the paths to get away from the clouds.
Tip 2: If you haven't acclimatised, make sure you take things easy. You can run short of breath very quickly.
