Colca Canyon Day 1 - Oasis & New friend

It took 6hrs on the bus to reach Cabanaconde a small town sitting at 3200m on the edge of the lower Colca Canyon. The region is so different to other ones we have encountered and was closest to the desert area near Lima but was much higher almost as high as the Corderilla Blanca near Huaraz but not so lush and snow covered. The journey was amazing as we past huge volcanos, mountains and a desert landscape. There is virtually no water so the landscape ...

... sliding down the canyons, we reached Rio Colca, a freezing river that carved its way through the bottom of the canyon. The desert sun was sizzling, and we were sweaty and hot. So we did what anyone would do and stripped off our dirty smelly clothes and dipped into the icey waters. Well, actually only Sam and Chocolate did. I got in up to my knees and decided I couldn't handle the cold. So instead I washed my sweaty clothes and revelled in a small patch of shade. Once we ...

... pogas.

The next stop was a little before Chivay where we had a phenomenal view of the Colca Valley below where the local people maintain their ancestral traditions and continue to cultivate the pre-Inca stepped terracesI.

The last of our stops before returning to Arequipa was at the Patapampa Pass at an altitude of 4,910m, the ...

The Grander Canyon

... On the big day, our hike down the canyon, the clock struck 11am before we'd left the village. Hearing that the descent and return only took a few hours, we were in no rush. When the tantalising sight of the 'Oasis Paradise', a kilometre down the canyon, appeared around the first corner we felt ever so far away. The altitude, blistering heat and the fact we hadn't exercised in quite some time took it's toll. Cowering in what little shadow there was, we sipped our water ...

... be getting up at 5am the next day!

On day 2 of our trip we had an early breakfast and were picked up from the hostel at 6am. We drove to the small town of Yanque, where we visited the church, saw local girls and boys dancing in the square in traditional costume and generally tried to keep warm. The church was beautiful, and the embroidered costumes worn by the girls were very pretty indeed. Next, we set off to the town of Maca, where we visited ...
