Unlocking the mysteries of Karajía archaeological site and the remains of the Cloud People, witnessing the recently discovered third-highest waterfall in the word, exploring the mountaintop fortress of Kuelap.
This week-long independent journey trip through fascinating and under-explored Northern Peru is ideal for the solo traveller eager to get away from it all. Beginning in Lima, you’ll travel north to uncover the lush and mysterious Chachapoyas region, home to the Gocta Cataracts—the world’s third-highest waterfall—and Karajia and Kuelap, two of the area’s pre-Inca archaeological sites. There are so many ruins here that many remain unexcavated even today.
