Arequipa & Colca Canyon

Introduction

The canyon country surrounding the colonial city of Arequipa - with its Spanish churches, stately mansions and volcanic sillar-white stonework - is one of high altitude deserts, volcanoes, and terraced valleys.

Deep canyons yawn from the earth, among them Colca Canyon and Cotahuasi Canyon, said to be the deepest in the world, while majestic condors glide on the rising morning thermals.
