Most people travel to the Colca Canyon looking to spot the majestic condor at the aptly named Cruz del CÃ³ndor. However, this canyon has much more to offer: spectacular scenery, flora and fauna, colonial churches, indigenous culture and hot springs. CaÃ±Ã³n del Colcaâ€™s prime activity is trekking from hamlet to hamlet, through the canyonâ€™s breathtaking landscape, to oases, geysers, waterfalls and lagoons. Sports enthusiasts can also horseback ride, mountain bike, go whitewater rafting or climb the many volcanoes. Yanque and Chivay have museums.
