This tour was designed for nature lovers. Throughout the trip we will be surrounded by breathtaking scenery. In Chonta, we’ll have a great view of the Limatambo Valley. In the Apurimac Canyon, we’ll have the opportunity to observe the flight of the condor and enjoy extraordinary panoramic views of two of the most sacred mountains in the Andes: Salkantay and Humantay.
We will pick you up from your hotel at 9:00am and head north out of the city to the small village of Chonta where we begin our one hour hike towards the condor viewing point. The viewpoint offers the opportunity to observe flora and fauna native to the environment, as well as the Apurimac canyon and river. While most tourists do not arrive until after noon, a quiet environment to observe the giants that share the sky with hawks, eagles and even seagulls is guaranteed. Here, we will enjoy a specially prepared lunch-box before returning by the same path to Chonta to catch our private transport to Cusco
