Colca Canyon

The Colca Canyon is the second deepest canyon in the world, although it sometimes claims to be the deepest, while in reality the Cotahuasi Canyon is about a hundred feet deeper or so, and it’s about half an hour away from Colca.  Anyways, it’s one of the main tourist destinations in Peru, after Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca.

We went on a two-day tour of the canyon, which was mostly just a lot of driving and stopping at really touristy lookout spots.  We passed through a lookout point that was at 4,910 m above sea level, which was really friggin’ high.  Anyways, enough blabbering, here are some belated pictures:

I’ve discovered that with a regular camera it’s really really difficult to convey the depth of a canyon…
