Journey into the Colca Valley

Location: Chivay, Peru


And soon come upon the lakes, Lagunillas, full of flamingos and Andean goose, we are now very high above sea level.

We begin the journey into the Colca Valley.... scrubland, desert, wetlands, rock, grass

The smoking Nevada Sabancaya in the distance, 5976 metres above sea level

Vicuna in the scrublands

Part of Laguna de Salines

View of the distant Andes

Closer view from the Mirador of the Andes, 16,500 feet above sea level.

The mirador landmark..

And enterprise everywhere..

Statues of dancers in various costumes on the main street, Chivay is known as the town of the dance

The Inca terraces on the way in to Chivay, a small colonial town
