Colca Canyon, Peru
Reader Recommendation: "Amazing -- my favorite part of Peru!" -- Stacy Small, Elite Travel International
More Info: Though it's overshadowed by the more famous Machu Picchu, Colca Canyon is worth seeing on any trip to Peru. Located about 100 miles outside of Arequipa, it's more than twice as deep as the Grand Canyon. Keep an eye out for the Andean condor, a native bird that makes its home in and around the canyon.
