Kuelap Archaeological Site - 1 Day

Departure: 08.00 am. Finish: 5:00 pm

Visit the relatively unknown pre Incan archaeological site of Kuelap (built by the Chachapoyan people) which is a fortress built on top of a mountain with a sheer drop into cloud forest on one side and surrounded by high stone walls. It features around 450 circular stone buildings, diamond friezes (decorative band) on the walls and the roofs of the buildings are thatched large upside down cones.

The fortress was built with protection well in mind, with the tunnel like entrances decreasing in size forcing invaders to enter in single file. The site is sometimes shrouded in fog and some vegetation has begun to grow in the site adding to the sense of mystery. You will most likely only share the site with llamas, orchids and bromeliads.
