Chonta Condor Sighting Tour 2 Days

The Chonta Condor sighting 2 day tour is a new tour that we are launching for people who do not have enough time to experience Colca canyon in Arequipa. On this tour you will have a great opportunity in the Cusco region to perhaps see an Andean condor flying within 10 metres. The Chonta condor spotting site is located in Apurimac Canyon close to Cusco. Here you can enjoy the beautful sights of condors flying over the canyon against the most stunning backdrop of the Humantay mountain and Salkantay mountain peaks.

En route to the condor spotting site we will also have the opportunity to explore the Quillarumiyuc inca site, otherwise known as the Moonstone temple. In addition we will explore the Tarawasy Inca site, which are relatively unknown and therefore less crowded than more popular Incan archaelogical sites.
