Not sure if we were particularly lucky, but we saw & photographed LOTS of these fabulous birds, set against the Andean back-drop. Our best sighting was ten minutes before the actual Condor's Cross location, where half a dozen adult & juvenile birds were swooping across...More

We were here for 30 minutes in the morning. We didn’t so soooo much condors so close. But it was ok. Not bad and if you are here you shouldn’t miss that.

This site is near the condor view point and near the local traders selling their wears. Well worth taking a look

I'm a bird lover, so while Machu Picchu was at the heart of our trip to Peru, I was really hoping to see condors. Wow, did they put on a show for us! Our guide got us to this place at the right time and...More

There were 100s of people there but the viewing area is spread out along the canyon so it is easy to see the condors. The setting is spectacular but it is the birds you go to see. At one stage I counted 14 in the...More

We were very fortunate to see many condors. We left Chimay by 6:30 AM to get out here mid morning. Our guide told us the condors come out with the sun so I’d plan on an early morning arrival for the best opportunity. That being...More

This is the main viewing area to see the Condors fly. Lots of different viewing areas spread out from the area of the cross, so even when busy there are lots of places to line up for the perfect photo. We arrived around 8.00am and...More

This is the prime place along the canyon, and every tourist stops here. During rush hour, hundreds upon hundreds. The condors know it too and don't show anymore.

You can go by yourself from Cabanaconde by bus ( at 7 a.m from la plaza) the prize is 3 S. The condors show up around 8 o’clock until 9.30/10 a.m. They’re beautiful and they fly really close to you. You can’t miss it !!!

We took the Colca Canyon tour with Colonial Tours from Arequipa and it was excellent value. The tour was over a two day period with an overnight in Chivay. There were multiple stops at various viewing points to include San Miguel viewing point and Condor...More
