Canyon itineray

Hoping someone can help us with our itinerary.

Day 1. Arrive in Chivay at 4pm from Cusco. We will take a bus to Cabanaconde but would like to stop at the condor lookout. Are we risking not getting a second bus if we get off this late in the day?

Day 2. Hike through Llahuar to Sagalle. Is this length of a hike reasonable for one day? It seems like 4 hours + 4 hours and I would consider us medium fitness.

Day 3. Hike back up to Cabanaconde and take bus to Arequipa.

The best time to see the condors is supposed to be early morning I think.

Hi, I confirm Sue. There is a quite short time available for see the condors, max 2 hrs, 8-10am or so.

Moreover, the advised season is the dry one, May to December.

You definitely can only see the condors in the morning. They circle there as they get ready to go out to search for food. No point in stopping in the evening.
