It is located in Suykutambo district, Espinar province, Cuzco region, at 4,801 metres above sea level. The canyons contain cliffs, slopes and rich forests of queuñas and tholas. The Cerrotambo and Coporaque Rivers flow through 80-metre high rock formations of volcanic origin, which inspired the canyons' name.
The town has architecture preserved from colonial times, including the plaza with six arched entrances, which represent the indigenous peoples of the zone, while the San Juan Bautista is an unmistakeable construction in the mestizo-Baroque style.
The rivers, slops and plateaux of the area allow tourists to participate in adventure sports like trekking, paragliding, canoeing and rock climbing. The Eco-Sport Tourism and Traditional Dance Festival are held here annually.
