Colca Canyon is a gorge of the Colca River in southern Peru. It is Peru’s third most-visited tourist destination and has a depth of 13,650 ft /4,160 m (more than twice the depth of the Grand Canyon in the United States). The Colca Valley is a lively Andean valley with pre-Inca roots rich in heritage. The local people maintain their ancestral traditions and continue to cultivate the stepped terraces. Additionally the canyon is home to the Andean Condor, a species that has been the focus of worldwide conservation efforts. Other amazing highlights include natural hot springs, archaeological sites and ruins of pre-Hispanic settlements.
