Kuelap, called the other Machu Picchu, is located very close to Chachapoyas. It is one of the most representative archaeological sites in the lower montane forest of Peru.

DAY 1: JAEN / CHACHAPOYAS | INC: –

Arrival to Jaen. Transfer from the airport to the city of Chachapoyas (“Chachapoyas Premium Service”). Accommodation in Chachapoyas.

DAY 2: CHACHAPOYAS / GOCTA WATERFALL | INC: B/L

After breakfast, we will be headed to the picturesque town of Cocachimba; from there, we will begin our journey towards Gocta waterfall (an hour and a half on horseback plus one hour walk). Along the way, we will enjoy the great diversity of flora and fauna, and a splendid view of the waterfall.  Gocta Waterfall, locally known as “La Chorrera”, is 771 meters high and it is considered among the highest waterfalls in the world. It is the perfect habitat for toucans, monkeys, mountain lions and Andean cocks-of-the-rock. It is located in a large cloud- covered forest, around which there are about twenty waterfalls. It offers a beautiful combination of geography and history, making it a magical place. We will return to Cocachimba and have a traditional lunch. Return to Chachapoyas.

DAY 3: CHACHAPOYAS / KUELAP FORTRESS| INC: B/L

In the morning, we will go to Kuelap, a majestic architectural site built by Chachapoyas. On our way, we will make a stop to have a panoramic view of the Macro Archaeological, also known as “Macro Towers” for its design characteristics; it is located on the side of a hill overlooking Utcubamba river. Then we will go to the starting point towards Kuelap, we will climb on horseback or on foot to the “Fortress”, which is built on top of Cerro Barreta (3000 m. a. s. l.).  It is a place surrounded by beautiful landscapes; at first, it seems inaccessible since it is protected by colossal walls and cliffs on three of its four sides. It has three platforms and inside they have circular buildings decorated with rhomboidal and zigzag friezes. Its complex interior architecture indicates it was a well-organized population group.  The surrounding landscape and the natural scenarios make it unforgettable. We will return to Choctamal for lunch. Return to Chachapoyas.
