The Andean condor (vultur gryphus), is actually an enormous vulture, boasting the largest wing span of any land bird. Some individuals have span in excess of 3 m/9.84ft and measure well over a meter from their bill to the tip of their trail. They weigh up to 11kg. The adult plumage is uniformly black with the exception of a white ruff surrounding the base of the neck, and head red bald, primarily feeds on rotting meat.
The Incas believed that birds were the messengers of the Apus, the gods who lived on the summits of mountain. The condor, being the most impressive bird, was associated with the highest peaks whilst less remarkable birds were considered to carry the thought and words of spirits residing in lower mountain.
The best way to see these birds is this new place of Apurimac and Lima Tambo canyon we guaranteed you.
