The Chachapoyas and their Royal Paths (03 Days / 02 Nights) from USD $ 173
This short, but very dynamic program allows you to have access to typical villages, observing flora and fauna, visiting interesting archaeological compounds, hamlets, valleys and landscapes around the Utcubamba River, all the way to the Fortress of Kuélap; a majestic architectural work built by the Chachapoyas, on top of a high mountain.
It is the mountainous jungle’s most imposing monumental complex, and it is surrounded by cliffs and precipices on three of its four sides. Inside the more than 20 meter high fortified walls, it shelters 505 living quarters, the majority of which are of circular layout. This tour is mainly a hike, apart from the connections on the first and last day.
