Benigunga is the name local people use for their territory located in between the provinces of Quispicanchis and Canchis, because of the beautiful multicolor views this place offers. The tone of the color depends of the weather at the momento. When it is cloudy, the mountain colors will be dark and on sunny clear sky, the colors of the mountain will be light. On our journey, we will have the opportunity to appreciate the seven different varieties of Southamerican camels. On a good day, we could observe the biggest bird of the world, the condor, and if we are lucky we would be able to see a puma, the Andean feline.
