Early in the morning, we will depart from Chachapoyas City to Kuelap, the Ancient Fortress of the Chachapoyas Cloud Warriors. On the way, we will make a short stop for a panoramic view of Macro, a group of pre-Inca dwellings and burial chambers built on the side of a mountain.
When we arrive at Nuevo Tingo town, we will board the cable car system which takes us to the Kuelap tourist center. From there we can hike up to the archaeological site for about 15 to 20 minutes or take the horseback option.
The most important archaeological site in northern Peru will receive us with impressive walls that stand approximately 20m (65 feet) tall and 584m (639 yards) long.
Inside we will be able to appreciate nearly 400 houses and many other incredible ceremonial buildings. Much of the site is still covered by trees, laden with bromeliads orchids and mosses which give us the sense of mystery and discovery.
At the end of the excursion, we will return to Tingo Nuevo town by the cable car system, have lunch and return to your hotel.
