    What to Expect
    Board an air-conditioned vehicle destined for Kuelap fortress at your Chachapoyas accommodation. Midway through the journey, you’ll stop for a panoramic view of Marco, a collection of pre-Inca dwellings and burial chambers, before continuing to Nuevo Tingo town.

    Climb aboard a cable car and enjoy spectacular views of the Utcubamba Valley as you ascend to the vertiginous perch of Kuelap Fortress. From Kuelap tourist center, choose to take a short uphill hike or horseback ride to the archaeological site.

    Enter through a gap in the 65-foot (20-meter) walls and appreciate more than 400 dwelling and ceremonial buildings alongside history-rich commentary from your guide.

    After a thorough exploration, return to Tingo Nuevo town for lunch and then relax during the transfer back to your Chachapoyas accommodation.

    Visiting Kuellap was a real highlight in my trip to Peru. The site is fantastic and getting there is equally exciting. The trip was very well organised and the driver and guide extermely polite and helpful
