Kuelap Tours

Kuelap
This impressive and historic fortress is located a three-hours walk from the hotel district of Santa Maria and attracts travelers from across the globe thanks to its imposing stone walls and the four hundred individual buildings that make up the complex.
 
Travelers can climb to the top of the fortress and look out over the lush vegetation of the Utcubamba Valley on a trip to this remote destination. Locals agree that the pre-Incan structure is far less visited than the famed Inca Trail, but travelers say its impeccable views, ancient history and steep hiking paths make it the perfect stop for anyone looking to learn more about the culture and history of Peru. Be advised that high elevation means weather can change in an instant, so warm and dry clothes are essential. Though Kuelap is well off the beaten path, visitors say the journey to get there is almost as scenic as the destination itself.

Practical Info

The fortress is located near Chachapoyas City in Amazonas. It’s possible to travel via taxi or kombi from Chachapoyas’s main square. Guides are required to tour the fortress and can be secured before entering the main wall.
Address: Amazon, Peru
