A beautiful valley
The Colca Canyon is a beautiful valley near the village of Chivay, in southern Peru. To go, you have to take a guided tour with a car, privately or as part of a group. The canyon is more than 3,000 feet deep, the deepest in the world, and is almost twice as deep as the Grand Canyon. With the tour, you can see the canyon from the top and the condors flying through the neck of the canyon and the mountains. The nearest village is Chivay, a nice stop after a day walking through the canyon. It has a few small hotels, which is ideal because it's 4 hour drive from Arequipa, and almost all travelers will need to spend a night.
