"Colca canyon" Cabanaconde by Yso

Cabanaconde Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 14 photos

When hiking the Colca canyon most people join a guided tour, but it is just as easy to take a local bus to Cabanaconde and hike from there.
The Colca canyon is one of the deepest canyons in teh world, but I thought it more resembled a river valley than a canyon, and the heights are measured from teh tops f the nearest mountains which does make it a bit easy. having said that, the hike down from Cabanaconde to the Oasis on the river is a 1000m drop! You can easily make it down and back in a day.
theer are several nice places to stay in Cabanaconde, but these are more hiking lodges than 5 star hotels!
