  • As interesting as Machu Picchu. Soon the new funiculars will work and save as 90 minutes drive. You have to walk 2.5 kms or ride a horse. It is a 2.5 hour drive from Chachapoyas city. Really interesti...  more »
  • We love to enjoy the beauty of this place, everything is well organized, all us annoying is that caregivers of the place were long time behind one without kindness and did not let or sit down and enjoy the scenery.

  • 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
