CONDOR SIGHTING DESCRIPTION

An incredible journey to the Apurimac canyon where you will observe Andean condors (Vultur gryphus).  See them soar in all their splendor while enjoying amazing Andean scenery.

The Andean condor is the largest flying land bird in the Western Hemisphere. They have a wing span of around 3 meters and a body weight of 15 kg approximately. He can fly higher than 8,000 meters and lose our sight.

In Andean cosmology, the condor is the messenger of the gods who also transports the souls of the departed into the spirit realms. The Apus or tutelary spirits may also appear to human beings in the form of a condor. To come in contact with this powerful animal is a deeply transformative experience that may impact our soul.
