- We leave Cusco by private transport at 8:30am approximately and travel through the highlands of Anta towards the Northwest. After passing the town of Limatambo a steep dirt road will take us over the Puna highlands with stipe grass to the scenic mountain hamlet of Chonta (3,400m / 11,154ft) near the Apurimaq Canyon.
- After 3 hours of driving, we will arrive to Chonta, where we start a one-and-a-half-hour trek of moderate difficulty to the viewpoint.
- During this walk we will look for many typical species, such as the black-breasted buzzard, the mountain caracara, the golden-billed saltator, the saw finch, the giant hummingbird, and the hooded goldfinch; while we admire one of the deepest canyons in the Americas, the Apurimac canyon (4,691 m. / 15,386 ft). It is possible to spot the giant Andean condor crossing the canyon, even before reaching the viewpoints.
- The majestic Andean condor may reach up to 8,000 m in height and in Andean cosmology he is believed to transport the souls of the departed into the spirit realms. It is on the sheer cliffs further down near the river where the condors nest and roost. To watch this beautiful bird with a wing span of up to 3 m soaring to the backdrop of the breath-taking canyon is an experience that may deeply touch you.
- In the early afternoon we start our hike back to Chonta and drive back to Cusco arriving there around 8 pm. to drop you off at your hotel.
- Meals included: Box-Lunch.
