Getting There & Away

Most people race through the region on the classic two-day tours, with a night in Chivay, and not passing Cruz del Condór. From Arequipa, it's easy to take a large, comfortable bus to Cañón del Colca stopping at Chivay (S13, 3½ hours) or all the way to Cabanaconde (S17, five hours). There are frequent departures with Andalucía, from Terrapuerto, and Reyna, from Terminal Terrestre; neither make any stops but do have toilets aboard. Note that buses get cold as they ascend to high altitudes.
