Colca Canyon – Friday and Saturday, October 21-22

We made it! Friday we hiked down 3,500 ft to the bottom of Colca Canyon. We stayed in a small cabin, had dinner and shared a beer by the pool and Duke went swimming. You have to buy tickets to hike in the canyon. Each ticket costs $21. 

Saturday we hiked back up again. We spent the night in a hotel near Chivay. The hotel clerk warned us to let the water run for five minutes to let it get hot.  When the water got hot the showers sure felt good.

    1. The cabin was kind of open air. There were 3 or 4 different companies with places to stay. Luckily Duke hiked around checking them out and he found this one that had some cabins with bathrooms. Thank goodness we got one. The bed was comfortable so all was good. There were lights but the electricity wasn’t always on.
      The water comes from the river in the canyon. They empty the pool and refill it every day. All in all we were very comfortable.
