About Colca Canyon
Created by a vast geological fault, the Colca Canyon is thought to be the deepest canyon in the world measuring one kilometre from the river bottom to cliff-edge. Huge, scenic mountains punctuate the valley surrounding the canyon including the snow-capped peak of Mismi Nevado, considered to be the official source of the Amazon River. Some of Peru’s best examples of pre-Inca terracing can be found in the region and traditional Indian villages pepper the sharp terraces of the canyon. In recent times a number of boutique hotels in Andean design have appeared in the local villages, offering travellers a unique rural Peruvian experience close to one of the country’s top tourist destinations. Wild llamas known as vicunas, famed for their high quality wool, complete this picture-perfect scene and the drive to the canyon is one of the most impressive in Latin America – no mean feat.Read More
