Sangalle - Colca Canyon
Sangalle (2, 100 meters alituted) is located in Colca Canyon - Cabanaconde . 2 hrs and 30m trekking downhill from Cabanaconde.
Formerly Sangalle was a very important place for local people in Colca Canyon because of the existence of fruit trees, but suddenly there was a terrible plague that began turning bad all those fruits.
Nowadays Sangalle is a charming tourist spot and a refreshing place to recover the energy spent during your trekking.
This magical and unique place is best known for local people as the “OASIS”, because of its wonderful location and its green vegetation that is surrounded by dry mountains. This Oasis is located at the bottom of the canyon next to the Colca River. It has beautiful gardens and natural pools that it helps against the burning sun. Without a doubt Sangalle is a place we definitely recommend it.
