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.

If time allows we shall visit the school of Chonta that benefits from our tours through the donation of material, before we start our 1:30 hours walk of moderate difficulty. With a little luck we may spot typical highland birds on the way (sometimes even parrots can be seen), whilst appreciating the pretty flora and the spectacular scenery as we approach the deep canyon.

A short hike downhill takes us to the viewpoint in time for a delicious picnic lunch.
