A Charming Place
The Aranwa Pueblito Encantado del Colca is a very picturesque hotel on the banks of the Colca River, surrounded by mountains. This is the ideal setting to disconnect from city life and to feel in a faraway place, immersed one’s self in nature. The surrounding scenery is imposing; snow-capped mountains can be seen on the horizon, beneath a clear sky. Nature is all around.
No visitor to Colca should miss the viewing point known as Cruz del Cóndor. This excursion can be completed in around four hours, beginning with an early departure from the hotel in order to take full advantage of the morning. The drive to the viewing point takes just one hour and twenty minutes. From Cruz del Cóndor it is possible to observe the unique spectacle of condors in flight. These enormous birds soar past this viewing point as if they know that those waiting there have come to see and photograph them. This is a truly special and uplifting experience; not everyone has the chance to see one of the world’s largest birds.
On the way back to the hotel, there will be plenty of time to stop and take photographs of the beautiful scenery, appreciate the grandeur of the canyon, as we pass lakes and other remarkable sights along the way.
