Kuelap, Karajia, Gocta Water Falls adventure tour in northern peru
Chachapoyas Kuelap Karajia: interesting archaeological site reached by rough unpaved roads and high cloud forests. The town was an important junction on jungle–coast trade routes until a paved road was built in the 1940s through nearby Pedro Ruíz, bypassing Chachapoyas altogether.
The unlikely capital of the department of Amazonas, this pleasant colonial settlement has now a market and makes an excellent base for exploring the awesome ancient ruins left behind by the fierce civilization of the Chachapoyas (People of the Cloud Forest).
Kuelap, in the cloud forests of Northern Peru: Ideal for combining ecology and archaeology, opportunity for leisure and adventure travel. Kuelap is the second highest and longest mountain range, and the driest desert. It also has the “lost stone citadels” and some Inca Trails, Waterfalls and mini-eco zones, there are also orchids, bromeliads and hummingbirds live close together in this “eternal spring”, sharing a good ecology and climate.
