Colca canyon peru

  1. 1. Colca Canyon is a canyon of the Colca River in southern Peru . It is located about 100 miles (160 kilometers) northwest of Arequipa . It is more than twice as deep as the Grand Canyon in the United States at 4,160 m., and it is promoted as the "world's deepest canyon," although the canyon's walls are not as vertical as those of the Grand Canyon. The Colca Valley is a colorful Andean valley with towns founded in Spanish colonial times, and still inhabited by people of the Collaguas and the Cabanas cultures. The local people still maintain ancestral traditions and continue to cultivate the pre- Inca stepped terraces. Created by gabriel voiculescu with photos from INYERNET
