Excursion Kuelap

8:30am we depart for the town of Nuevo Tingo (one hour by car). We drive thru villages and climb up to the amazing pré – We will continue our tour by Cable Car to the tourist stop, from where we will walk 30 minutes to reach the fortified citadel of KUELAP. Inca  Ruins of  “KUELAP”,  situated at  3000m and discoverd in 1843. A major archaeological site built by the Chachapoyas. It is a massive stone structure located at the top of a 3000 meter tall mountain. It is located on the left bank of the Uctubamba River in the Province of Luya. It covers 450 hectares and consists of more than 500 circular houses and other buildings surrounded by finely-worked stone walls, some of which rise to 30 meters high. Seen from above, the city has the shape of a bird’s wing. Experts place its construction with the golden age of the Chachapoyas culture. In their native language, Kuelap means “cold place”, and while this site is in the rainforest, it enjoys a temperate climate, dry during the day with extreme drops in temperature at night. Comparing Kuelap with Peru’s most famous destination, Machu Picchu, and we can say that Kuelap was more impressive because of the lack of visitors. Return to the boarding platform for the Cable Cars back to Nuevo Tingo, where we will have lunch.  Finally we return to the city of Chachapoyas.
