Optional Short Walks Colca Canyon
Our short walks in the Colca Valley are perfect for those who want to have a physical activity that doesn’t require much effort while exploring and enjoying the valley’s beautiful natural scenery. These short walks also allow you to continue with your acclimatization to the high altitude in case your trip continues to cities such as Puno or trekking activities at high altitude such as the Inca Trail; climb the Misti or Chachani volcanoes etc.
We have prepared two beautiful paths to enjoy the valley
1.- Coporaque – Uyo Uyo
Duration: 3 ½ hrs.
On this walk we pass through two archaeological sites; Yuracaca and San Antonio. We will observe various types of plants, shrubs and cactuses and have beautiful views of Yanque town until we arrive at Uyo Uyo.
2.- Canocota to La Calera.
Duration: 2 ½ to 3 hrs.
In this walk we will appreciate a small Canyon and observe a colorful variety of plants, shrubs, cactuses and birds; with some luck we might even see the “Giant hummingbird”. At the end of the tour we will stop by La Calera hot springs.
