Chachapoyas, Mystery in the Mists (03 days / 02 nights)

The city of Chiclayo is this program’s departure point, travelling by night, on a bus, to the city of Chachapoyas and returning by the same route.

It presents two of Amazonas´ main cultural and natural attractions: 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 its fortified walls of more than 20 meters high, it shelters 505 living quarters, the majority of which are of circular layout. Then, we will go to contemplate the famous and impressive Gocta’s Cataract; the fourth highest in the world, which is surrounded by exuberant nature. On the way, we’ll visit the picturesque village of Huancas , La Pitaya ’s Petroglyphs and the Archaeological Complex of Macro.
