Viewpoint Canyon del Sonche & Huancas

Description

Tour Canyon del Sonche

The remote area of Chachapoyas in the north of Peru is surrounded by high mountains with rainforests and is only accessible via a spectacular route along rugged landscapes with mountain passes and valleys.

The summit of the Canyon del Sonche is on 2,620 meters above sea level and the canyon has a length of approximately 11 kilometres ending at the Utcubamba River. This canyon is deep enough to impress any traveller in search of hidden places, since it is not so crowded and you will enjoy the landscapes without being surrounded by many groups of other tourists.
