The Mirador de la Cruz del Cóndor, is a privileged place to observe the depth of the canyon, the vegetation and above all, the flight of the condors, the true king of the entire Colca Canyon area. In addition, in the distance you can see the Coropuna and Ampato volcanoes, which add beauty to the natural landscape. Without a doubt, from the Mirador Cruz del Cóndor we can take some of the most beautiful photographs in Peru.
The Colca Valley is a huge geological formation that was born thanks to the erosion of the river. This process did not happen overnight; lasted thousands of years. And as a consequence of this, the canyon has a narrower part from the Cruz del Cóndor. This viewpoint constitutes a natural spectacle and an interesting experience for the visitor. A large cross and a small stone wall have been built for the convenience of tourists.
