Feel like an intrepid explorer at Revash Mausoleo de los Chachapoyas, a mysterious necropolis of the Chachapoya civilization. Dating back to pre-Inca times, these ingenious sculptures are carved straight into the side of the rock. What's more, they remain almost entirely intact. Many believe these to be replicas of the housing from the era. While not a hike in the strictest sense, the steep trek to the ruins demands appropriate footwear and a bit of muscle power.
