Incredible! I've never seen anything like it before. The day I was there there was about a 30 minute window where the condors where flying all over, at least a dozen of them! It was amazing!

This viewpoint has excellent panoramic views over the Colca Canyon and attracts hordes of people who want to catch a glimpse of the condors that roam the area. I was a bit worried about not getting the chance to see these majestic birds in action, but I think it is pretty much guaranteed that you will from this mirador and they fly pretty low to where you patiently sit waiting. The dramatic scenery is well worth the trip in its own right as well.

It's amazing to see how condors fly so close to the people. The viewing platform is on the rim of the canyon, and the massive Andean Condors just live their life. They are one of the biggest birds in the world, with their almost 3m wingspan. The white rim around the neck is the distinctive feature.

Along the rim of the Cocla Canyon is a magnificent viewpoint for watching the Andean Condor. Most tour groups arrive in the morning because I believe that's the best time. I was really surprised by how close these birds were flying to us. Their wingspan is about 3 meters--absolutely incredible to view these birds on the edge of the canyon. Nearly any our of the Colca Canyon will stop here.

Deep within the Colca Canyon region is the highest viewpoint from which condors soar up the canyon on the morning thermals. Watch them at sunrise. The Canyon can be reached from Arequipa via either a tour group or a long-bumpy-ride on public transport. For those more inclined for adventure travel, the Colca Canyon also has Rock Climbing, Mountain Biking, Zip Lining, Horseback Riding, Trekking, and Camping available.

Desde este mirador podrás observar el cañón del Colca así como el vuelo de los cóndores en su hábitat natural, solo por eso ya se convierte en una experiencia inolvidable. Siempre hay muchísimos turistas por lo que encontrarás puestos de comida típica, así como venta de souvenirs por los alrededores.
