Itinerary

Day 1: Cusco – Chonta Condors Valley

On the first day, it's important to get your body to adapt to the altitude and begin to prepare physically for the following days’ hiking. We'll pick you up from your hotel at 8am for the trip to the Condor Viewing Point at Chonta. Along the way, we'll stop and explore one of two archaeological sites: Killarumiyoc or Tarahuasi. While driving further, you will enjoy the landscape of the Limatambo valley and spot small farming communities nestled among the valley. Upon reaching Chonta, we'll walk for approximately an hour along a narrow track with spectacular views of the Apurimac Canyon. At the viewing point, there will be time to relax and observe the condors soaring over the canyon, while a specially prepared boxed lunch will be served. After lunch, we'll return to the vehicle and continue to the final destination at the basecamp. Upon arrival at the basecamp, we'll be greeted with a lovely refreshment made from seasonal fruits and taken to the basecamp to enjoy a hot shower and a deserved rest. We'll end the day with a superb dinner consisting of fresh and locally sourced foods typical of Peruvian-cuisine.
