The canyon is 13,650ft (4,160 m.) depth considered the deepest of the world, the Colca canyon is home to the Andean Condor (Vultur gryphus), a species that has seen worldwide effort to preserve it. The condors can be seen at close range as they fly past the canyon walls, and are the region's most popular attraction. “Cruz del Condor” is a popular tourist stop to view the condors, an overlook where condors soar gracefully on thermals of warm air rising from the canyon. “La Calera” natural hot spring is located at Chivay the biggest town in the canyon here we’ll go to take baths and relax in the natural hot water.
