Colca Canyon

Nature Sightseeing Historic Sites
Take a trip to Colca Canyon, the world's second deepest canyon, and witness its diverse landscapes, rich culture, and varied wildlife. With a long history of inhabitation, the Colca Valley features pre-Incan archaeological sites and ruins, stepped Incan terraces, and rustic colonial-era settlements. Roam among vicunas and cacti plants, see condors flying in close range, and witness the plunging canyon, in some places as deep as 3,300 m (11,000 ft). During your Colca Canyon vacation you can also visit Spanish settlements, relatively unchanged since colonial times, relax in the area's numerous hot springs, and purchase colorful arts and crafts made by the native Cabana and Collagua people. Whether you only want to go to Colca Canyon, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly Peru itinerary builder.
