Located in the Northern Andes these contemporaries of the Incas withstood the pressure from their neighbors down South which was quite the feat. The site is visited nowadays with a brand new cable cart something that is also unique in Peru. Apart from Kuelap and Machu Picchu we will also visit Cusco, the Sacred Valley and the northern destinations of Chachapoyas and the fifth highest water fall in the world; the Gocta Falls.
