We will be in Colca Canyon for 2 days (1 night).
- Is it possible to visit the canyon and do a day hike (or two) without a guide?
- If so, is it dangerous to trek without a guide?
- If not, are there designated routes to follow?
- Where is the best place to start/finish/stay overnight?
Most of the things I read online focus on official guided 2 days/1 night Colca tours. I am keen to avoid a group tour so that we have more freedom to explore the canyon in our own time.
