ITINERARY

Day 1 Lima (or Cusco) to Arequipa
We fly from Lima to Arequipa. Mount Misti stands like a benevolent protector over this city. This active volcano is the site of an annual running race to its summit, and recently gave to science the mummy of an Indian child. The most important tourist site in the city is the monastery of Santa Catalina.
Day 2 Arequipa to Huambo
We drive for 5 hours north to the canyon rim and camp at the precipice village of Huambo.
Day 3 Huambo to the Colca Canyon
We hike for 7 hours and 15 km down, with burros shouldering the gear, to the native settlement of Canco.
Days 4 to 9 Rio Colca
Six days of rafting, culminating in a series of Class IV and V rapids. We stop once to navigate a class VI rapid.
Day 10
We drive back to Arequipa and relax. Maybe day two would have been a good day to climb Misti, and today a good day to see the monastery.
Day 11 Arequipa to Lima (or Cusco)

We fly back to Lima.

Six days on a raft in the Colca Canyon. This river is the hardest descent in the world, apart from experimental runs performed by professional explorers and teams of guides. Fortunately, the river increases in difficulty, from the teamwork building first day, to the team-testing end. The Colca River has cut a canyon three kilometres deep. This is the deepest in the world, more than twice as deep as the Grand Canyon, and deeper than the gorge of the Yangtzee. It has an average depth of 3.4 kilometres when measured from mountains of Yajirhua (5212m) and Lucerna (4245m) to its bottom. Condors, ten-foot-broad vultures, live volcanoes, and thousand-foot waterfalls draw the eye up, away from the sculpted white stone riverbed and menacing boulders
