Chachapoyas In The Media

The Los Angeles Times just featured an article “Clues from the mists of time” about a little-visited region in northern Peru: Chachapoyas. Chachapoyas is one of the last outposts of unexplored territory in the Continent, with outstanding natural beauty and remarkable cultural interest. A trip to Chachapoyas is a once-in-a lifetime experience of exploration and discovery.

Chachapoyas in the Media: The Los Angeles Times

“Though almost everyone knows about the Inca and Machu Picchu, relatively few have heard of the Chachapoya or visited their domain, a vast swath of Amazon headlands and breathtaking cloud forests on the slopes of the Andes. This walled settlement, among the largest monuments of the ancient Americas, rivals the Incas’ Machu Picchu in scale and grandeur.” Patrick J. McDonnell, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer

About Chachapoyas

Nestled in the cloud forest between 800 and 3,000 metres (2,624 and 9,800 feet), Chachapoyas is scattered with ruins attributed to the pre-Inca Chachapoya culture – also known as “The Cloud People”– who populated this area around the 10th century A.D. Read more about Chachapoyas.
