Amazonas - Peru

AmazonasThe department de Amazonas is famous for its cloud forests, areas with stunning microclimates and whose intense humidity favors the exuberant growth de plants like orchids and bromeliads and animals like the spectacled bear and the Andean cock de the rock.

The capital, Chachapoyas, full de narrow streets and containing a large Main Square, maintains beautiful mansions and lovely balconies as evidence de its Colonial past. This is the launching site for excursions to the fabulous citadel de Kuelap, built by the Chachapoyas, a fierce people that for years resisted the expansion de the Incas.


Located at the top de rocky cliffs and guarded by a gigantic defensive wall, Kuelap contains in its interior circular compartments with decorative friezes. There are also other places in the area you can also visit like the Lake de the Condors, also known as Lake de the Mummies, the Chinata Falls, and the Karajia Sarcophagi, amazing two-meter high clay tombs placed on the side de a rocky mountain.
