(If you want to have the chance to see more Cusco birds or Some Cusco Endemic Birds we can start at 6:00am for the same rate)

Once at Chonta Town, we will start an hour and a half trek to the first viewpoint. On the way we will look out for other Cusco birds and especially for the Cusco endemic birds Rusty-Fronted Canastero (Asthenes ottonis), Apurimac Brushfinch (Atlapetes forbesi) and Creamy-crested Spinetail (Cranioleuca albicapilla) and the Cusco near endemic bird Streak-fronted Thornbird (Phacellodomus striaticeps). At the first viewpoint we will have the chance to watch the impressive condor of Cusco in its natural habitat.

Following the adventure and to have a better view of these incredible Cusco birds, we will hike on a trail for about 30 minutes and then go down a few meters to the following viewpoints. Here we will also enjoy our box lunch.

On some occasions these formidable Cusco birds have flown up to 10 meters close to people. But you know how is the nature and always it will be unpredictable.
