Back when we were in Peru we made a trip through Arequipa all the way to the Colca Valley. The Colca Canyon is famous in Peru and is more than twice as deep as the Grand Canyon in the USA. Maybe it needs to be renamed the Grandest Canyon to get its day in the international spotlight.
We stayed in a quaint little village called Chivay and took day trips from there around the valley. The colectivos that we took from one town to another cost about a dollar each. We visited 2-3 villages and the next morning went up to the view point where Condors come to get some air so that they can fly around for the day.
It was just so nice to sit in a little bus full of Andean people, the wind in my hair, gazing out across landscapes such as this. Time to go back perhaps?
