    Our 2:30am alarm was not a welcome sound. In our groggy state we just managed to get our things together in time for our minibus to Cobanaconde, our base for treks into the Colca Canyon. The windy bus ride through the Peruvian antiplano revealed stunning starry skies, dramatic views of the surrounding smoke-spewing volcanos, alpacas and vicunas. After a quick breakfast stop in the provincial capital of Chivay and paying for our boleta turistica we made our way into ...

    ... to warn you of Alpacas and Llamas. One person on the bus was really struggling with the altitude and supposedly puttin alcohol on your hands and smelling it helps.

From here we had a short climb back up were we continued on flat following a ...

    A minibus collected us from our hostel at 7 to bring us to a town north of Arequipa, Chivay, for our tour of the Colca Canyon. As we were staying in a quieter hostel, we didn't have our usual crew on our tour but I had a chance to practice my Spanish with some older Colombian couples who didn't speak much English.

    I hadn't noticed the altitude sickness in Arequipa but on the way to Chivay I experienced ...

    Nigel: During our time in the previous town, we signed up for the Cola Canyon tour. The tour was for 2 days and the main attraction was the canyon and the condor birds which lived within. The canyon was previously recognised as the deepest canyon in the world (Grand canyon is the longest), but in recent years and with technology improving, it is now the 3rd deepest. For a canyon to be classed as one, it has to have one main feature... it has to ...
