Along the way be sure to look out for llamas, alpacas, and vicuñas in the magnificent mountains of the Andes, before you make a stop at a small cafe. You'll receive breathtaking views of the Misti, Chachani, Pichu Pichu, and Ampato volcanoes from the highest point of the Patapampa route.

Good bus drivers, great guides, good food, good communication with the agency, pick up on time, due to a strike the guides had to find solutions to transport and visit the canyon, which they did super well, it was a great way from Puno to Arequipa get. As a hotel in Chivay, we can recommend the Casa Andina Standard.

Consigliatissimo tour. Our guide, Giovanni, was very competent and attentive: he has always been tutto sotto controllo. Il canyon è divine e siamo riusciti a vedere moltissimi condor dal famous viewpoint. Chivay è molto piccola ma graziosa, consiglio l'attività alle terme il pomeriggio. 5 stelle your 5, safely!
