At 7:00 am, you will start the day tour from the hotel in Cusco. Driving for 2 hours, you will arrive at Limatambo. A beautiful valley with lots of avocado plantations and a sub-tropical climate where travellers can buy some last-minute supplies like water and some snacks because Chonta is a very small Andean village without shops or restaurants.
From Limatambo, we will follow a narrow dirt road with direction to the Chonta community (3,400 m). We then have a moderate hike for 1 ½ hour to reach out the lookout of Condors. There will be great views of the Apurimac canyon and Vilcabamba mountain range. With a little bit of luck we will spot some of the Condors overflying the canyon.
