travel date

This trekking is for people willing to discover the amazing Colca Canyon on a slow pace (about 3 hiking hours per day).

Colca Canyon trekking – 3 days


Day 1: Arequipa – Colca Canyon – San Juan de Chuccho

Today we leave Arequipa early in the morning (about 4am) and we continue our trip to Colca Canyon. At 6am we will have breakfast and then we are going to see a very famous spot called Cruz del Condor (Condors’ Cross). From this point, we are going to admire spectacular views on Colca Canyon and its biggest birds – Condors. Finally, we are going to start our trekking from the point called Pampa San Miguel. It will take us about 3 hours to get to our destination place which is San Juan de Chuccho. About 1pm we will have lunch. Then we will have time to relax and explore the little community of San Juan.

Height difference: -1000m

Hiking time: 3 hours

Food included: Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Day 2: San Juan de Chuccho – Oasis Sangalle

Today is an easy hiking day. We also have to walk about three hours to reach the natural Sangalle Oasis situated at 2300m, deep inside the canyon. We’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the wonderful views while trekking, and the swimming pool in our lodge where we’ll spend the night.

Height difference: +250m and -400m

Hiking time: 3 hours

Food included: Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Day 3: Oasis Sangalle – Cabanaconde – Chivay – Puno

Today is the real challenge of the day! We have to go up about 1100m! We are going to wake up at about 5 am. It will take us 2 to 3 hours to get to the village called Cabanaconde where we will have our breakfast. From there, we’ll take a bus in the direction of Chivay where we can stop over and enjoy natural hot springs (best thing to do after a 2 day trekking). Finally, we will have our lunch in Chivay and we will either back to Arequipa or to Puno, where Titicaca Lake is waiting for you.
