Travel information

One day Chonta Tour takes you to watch condors soaring in their natural habitat in the Apurimaq canyon near Cusco. It is remarkable scenery, beautiful nature, and great for birders. Join us on an unforgettable day journey to the reserve zone of Chonta at 3,400m, where you will witness the soaring of the majestic Andean condor (vultur gryphus) in his entire impressive splendor to the backdrop of terrific scenery.

The Andean condor is the largest flying land bird with a wing span of up to over three meters and a body weight of up to 15 kg. Although the Andean condor is largely a carrion feeder he may also prey upon newly born livestock or weak and sick animals. In Andean cosmology the condor is considered an “Apu”, the messenger of the gods who also transports the souls of the departed into the spirit realms. The condor represents the Hanaq Pacha, the outer and upper world, the cosmos as such.

We are committed to being a small group operator, as we feel this gives everyone in the group the best chance to get to know their fellow travellers and to hear and make the most of their guide.

Instead, we set this 1-Day Chonta Tour group departure to have a maximum of 8 travellers. Average group sizes are around 6 people, lower during the low season (December- March.

Fully trained English-speaking Local guides are provided for 1-Day Chonta Tour and many of our travellers consider them a highlight of their tour. We also provide a fully trained English-speaking guide for any sightseeing tours.

We recommend that you re-read all these before your departure as well as the small print of your travel insurance policy so you know exactly what is covered and what is not.
