Cruz del Condor

May 23rd, 2008

About 50km west of Chivay, Cruz de Condor is a lookout point over the Colca Canyon that is considered one of the best places to witness Condors in flight in their natural habitat.

The lookout, 1,200m above the canyon river, fills up with crowds each morning hoping that conditions are right for the condors to fly.

At such a height over the canyon, crowds at Cruz del Condor get to see the majestic birds swoop past at eye-level, for just metres out the birds are actually flying hundreds of metres high.
