  • The Chachapoyas culture is, in my opinion,the most interesting in Peru. The sites have no equal with any peruvian culture, starting with their sarcophagus on the side of mountains and ending with real...  more »
  • KUELAP, is the village of contour a village with a farming community that offers its services of guidance, horseback riding, food and lodgings, when one goes to Kuélap you stay so impressed that you do not want to get out of the and stay to see the sunset and the best Sunrise, for that there are lodgings just 300 metres from the CITADEL of KUELAP where people invites you to visit additional locations to watch the sunrise and enjoying the typical food of this area, great Kuelap people is you have to stay a night months appropriate to stay from April until September.

  • Must visit. Though not hard to get to, since there are no nearby airports. But that makes this place even a bigger must visit, since there are still few tourists here. They're building a cable track. Apparently they're expecting a lot more visitors in the nearby future. Although by using the cable track you'll miss a nice 40km ride, with stunning (or terrifying) views. We went here on a motor bike ride from chachapoya. Highly advisable! Make it a full day trip then
  • A few people have compared this to Machu Pichu, but this is odd and inaccurate, these ruins should be approached on their own merit. That said, I can't fully recommend heading this far into the highlands just to visit this site - it is certainly interesting, quiet and something different, not an essential visit on a travel schedule though.
  • This place is a special place. Completely overrated. A must if you're in the area.
  • somewhat difficult to climb but it was all worth the world! 1
