Go to the amphitheater of Oqolle to see the pre-Inca farming terraces, and cross the Sifon Bridge to appreciate the majesty of the Colca Canyon. Climb to the ruins of Uyu Uyu for a panoramic view of the canyon and town of Yanque.

Day 2: Yanque – Cruz del Condor – Arequipa Wake for an early breakfast to give you fuel for a full-day excursion on the left banks of the Colca Canyon. Visit some beautiful and typical towns to see colonial churches and interact with the gentle locals in typical needlework dresses. Marvel at the hundreds of pre-Inca farming terraces that are still used to grow the produce of the Andes, such as corn, quinoa, and kiwicha, a type of seed that has been farmed for over 4,000 years.
