The northern coastal desert of Peru holds some of the country’s greatest archaeological treasures: Chan Chan, the great adobe city of the Chimú civilization; 1,500-year-old Moche temples; and the royal tomb that brought the great Lord of Sipán to the world’s attention in 1987 — Peru’s very own King Tut. And the region continues to make news: In 2007, a 4,000-year-old temple and mural, among the oldest discoveries of their kind in the Americas were uncovered in the Lambayeque Valley. If archaeology isn’t your thing, northern beaches along the vast Pacific coastline particularly those in and around Máncora and Organos the coast’s hot new destination, draw surfers to some of the best waves off South America.
Kuelap and Chachapoyas: Large ferns and Orchid-draped cloud forest, impressive ridge-top citadels, stunning waterfalls, mysterious cliff tombs, astounding painted sarcophagi, this is the hidden world of the Chachapoyas region in northeastern Peru. Situated on the divide between the upper Amazon and the páramo (grasslands) of the Andean highlands, the Chachapoyas region is little visited and largely unknown, despite being one of the richest archaeological gems in the world and the extraordinary landscape that colors this region. The secret will be uncovered soon, the time to go is now before it is discovered by mass tourism. Be prepared to hear the zing of our guides’ machetes as we explore these mysterious ruins and awaken our inner “Indiana Jones!” We limit our group size to just ten travelers, so we encourage you to sign up soon. Experience Chachapoyas now, while it still has its wonderful sense of discovery.
We have crafted unique experiences to explore the hidden gems in the northern part of Peru, places which still make you feel like Indiana Jones lost in vast archaeological sites. So, grab your fedora, camera, and boots to explore it with a local Peru Summit Adventures private guide–Chiclayo Trujillo Kuelap Gocta Falls Tours
