KUELAP – Preinka Fortress
Tarapoto- Chachapoyas (overnight)- Kuelap (3050 m!)- Tarapoto- 3 days.(See Photo Gallery). This is one of the most mystic ruins known in Peru and has the great advantage that the visitors are not disturbed by great masses of tourists like at Cuzco and Machu Pichu. Usually, you have the tourist guide which takes care of the ruin for yourself- and he and his family knows a lot about this place. For people who cannot walk well at this high altitude, there is a horse transport service available to reach the fortress from the parking lot.
