Descent into Colca Canyon

It was time to actually descend into Colca Canyon. We left Cabanconde where we were staying (Altitude 10,784) and went by bus/van to the descent point. We traversed the most winding, treacherous dirt road I have ever seen (some people couldn't even look out the window). You can hike there and takes a few hours down and more up - but none of us elected to do that.

The last few hundred feet of descent were by foot - across the river and there was Llahuar Lodge where people can stay or have a meal. There are hot springs down buy the river and several of us took dips (not me - I did stick my toe in).
