Escape the crowds of southern Peru and join us on an incredible day trip to the Kuelap Fortress! Built around 500 AD, Kuelap is a large walled city that was once home to thousands of Chachapoyas people. With massive walls that stand approximately 20m (65 feet) tall and 584m (639 yards) long, nearly 400 houses, and many other ceremonial buildings, some archaeologists believe that the amount of stone required to build the Kuelap fortress surpasses the amount of stone required to build the Giza Pyramid in Egypt. With such a magnificent appearance and cultural importance, the majestic stone construction of this pre-Incan society is known as the most important archaeological site in northern Peru and considered to be one of the most unique in South America. If you are near Chachapoyas, a visit to Kuelap is an absolute must!
