Description

Your trip to Peru wouldn’t be complete without venturing into the Andes. Climb through mountain roads in a four-wheel drive and visit towns that still practice terraced agriculture that predates the Incas, before you stand above the Colca Canyon (3,270 m deep, eat your heart out Grand Canyon).

Stop at the Patapampa viewpoint, the highest point on your journey, before you head back down toward Toqra Pampa where you might spot a caracara – or a pink flamingo or two perched beside a lagoon.
