Day 1 : 
Approximately at 6 a.m. we pick up the passenger at their hotel, and then we leave to the Colca Valley. We leave before the classic tours and travel agencies. 
Approximately after a two hours' trip, we will find the main route that goes to the Colca Valley. In this sector, that is named "Pampas Cañahuas" we will be able to watch the "vicuñas" which are non-domesticated camelids that live freely onto the "Aguada Blanca y Salinas" National Reservation.  
In this part of our trip, it is possible to use the rest rooms placed in "Chasqui Pampa".  
After that, we will go to the "Bofedales of Tocjra Pampa" where we will be able to watch different kinds of birds like black ibis, andean duck, "guayatas", "the pajaro bobo", Andean gulls, etc.  
Near this place we will be able to find herds of "llamas" and "alpacas".

We sleep in the town of Cabanaconde and not in Chivay, because in Cabanaconde there are also good hotels and the village is more typical (fewer tourists). On the second day we don't get up at 4:30 a.m to see the condors, because we go two times to the Cross of the Condor. The first time is in the afternoon of the first day of our trip, where, frequently, some condors could be seen. The second time is in the morning of the second day, but we can get up at 7 am. and not at 4:30 a.m because the distance of Cabanaconde to "Cross of the Condor" is reached in just 25 minutes.
