Condor Sightseeing Chonta : Detailed itinerary
To start this beautiful one-day adventure. At 8:00 am. Our professional guide and mobility will pass by your hotel in Cusco. Then, get away from the bustling city to the Chonta Canyon.
On the way, enjoy excellent panoramic views of deep valleys formed by steep mountains, snow-covered mountains and also visit the archeological sites of Killarumiyoc. It was a temple dedicated to the Moon (Mother Moon) and there you can admire the master sculpture in the form of a half-moon worked on a single rock; continue your journey to Tarawasi. It was a resting place for Inca pilgrims and observe the style of rock inlay used in its walls. Then stop in the city of Limatambo for an energetic lunch (local restaurant).
Afterwards, continue your trip to the community of Chonta and begin the 1.5 hour hike to the Mirador del Condor Chonta Cusco (Use of horses, optional).
From 2:00 p.m. the condors begin to return from their daily activities, then we will be ready to witness the majestic flight of the condors, at least we can see about 10 condors, but there are more than 100 and other birds that inhabit this canyon.
Finally, we will return to the city of Cusco, arriving at approximately 7:00 p.m.
Important. In the rainy season from December to April it is not recommended to go on this excursion. Generally when it rains, condors are not sighted (we do not guarantee that you can see the condor), unless we are lucky that day.
