CHACHAPOYAS

 
Chachapoyas, which means “People of the Clouds”, is the name of a civilization that fought from high forest strongholds in resistance to Inca expansion and Spanish invasion.

THE INTERIOR : CHACHAPOYAS, KUELAP & CAJAMARCA

The Pre-Columbian Chachapoyas culture, conquered in the 15th century by the Incas, was one of the last kingdoms to succumb. They have left a landscape scattered with villages and burial sites which until recently has been largely overlooked by archaeologists.

Chachapoyas, which means “People of the Clouds”, is the name of a civilization that fought from high forest strongholds in resistance to Inca expansion and Spanish invasion.Situated in the remote corner of northeastern Peru, the cloud forests around the town of Chachapoyas (Amazonas region), its legacy includes one of South America's archaeological wonders - the defensive fortress of Kuelap. Majestically perched on the shoulder of a 10,000-foot atop mountain-top cliffs overlooking the verdant Andean landscape., this IXth Century citadel comprisesan urban complex of more than 400 stone buildings - homes, palaces and temples enclosed by a 70-foot-tall stone wall.

Their architecture demonstrates decidedly non-Inca features, such as protruding geometric patterns, cornices, and friezes. Kuelap's setting is unforgettably beautiful - a tropical cloud forest festooned with orchids and steeped in mystery.

In Chachapoyas, remains of the past invite discovery by the bold adventurer, and the cultures of the present extend a friendly welcome. You must be aware that the area is still new to tourism, but we have taken every care to provide as comfortable a stay as possible, with air-conditioned vehicles and expert guides.
