About Amazonas

Amazonas is a region in the north center of Peru. It is famous for its cloud forests, areas with amazing microclimates and whose intense humidity favors the exuberant growth of plants like orchids and bromeliads and animals like the spectacled bear and the Andean cock of the rock.

Its capital is Chachapoyas, full of thin streets and containing a large Main Square, maintains beautiful mansions and charming balconies as evidence of its Colonial past. Chachapoyas is the launching situation for excursions to the fabulous Kuelap citadel, built by the Chachapoyas, a fierce people that for many years resisted the expansion of the Incas.

The Kuelap citadel, located at the top of rocky cliffs and guarded by a gigantic defensive wall, it contains in its interior circular compartments with decorative forms. Another interesting places to visit in the area are the Lake of the Condors, also known as Lake of the Mummies, the Chinata Falls, and the Karajia Sarcophagi, incredible two-meter high clay tombs placed on the side of a rocky mountain.
