Hiking in Colca Canyon

Posted by Cassie, August 26th, 2010

We spent six days hiking through Colca Canyon, the second deepest canyon in the world. It was a neat hike, but really intense. The first day, we decended 1,750 meters to the bottom of the canyon. Over the next two days, we climbed 3,250 meters (10,662 feet) to a pass at 5,100 meters. Then, we desended 2,045 meters (6,709 feet)  in one day to get to Chachas. We did a lot of hiking up and down on this hike, but the scenery was beautiful.
