*******www.fertur-travel****/chachapoyas_tours.html The enigmatic city of Chachapoyas is considered the birthplace of the people known as the Warriors of the Clouds The Chachapoyas were a civilization that dominated north-east Peru until they were conquered by the Inca Empire in the 15th Century. Later, after the Spanish conquest, the city was re-founded as a colonial center and given its current name. Chachapoyas presides over a region of archaeological riches and natural wonders hidden between the mountains and the jungle, almost forgotten by outsiders because they were so isolated. The most famous is the yellow stone fortress of Kuelap, known as the Machu Picchu of Northern Peru. Waterfalls, hilltop ruins and many other sites of spectacular beauty have been discovered in the surrounding valleys. The Sarcophagi of Karajia were built into a cliffside 2600 meters above sea level. Their stern faces each protect a mummy kneeling inside. The latest attraction is Gocta Falls, brought to the worlds attention in 2006. It drops 771 meters to the valley floor, and its claimed theyre the third highest in the world. All these attractions are off the beaten track but its worth the effort, with tranquil valleys, beautiful natural cloud forest landscapes, temperate weather, buildings filled with history, and friendly people proud of their natural and architectural heritage.. They look to the future hoping to develop tourism and agriculture on the twin pillars of social wellbeing and ecological sustainability. Fertur Peru Travel.

*******www.fertur-travel****/chachapoyas_tours.html Each 15th of August the church and parish of Chachapoyas celebrate the festival of Mama Asunta It all started between 1842 and 1845 when a local man, Julin Monteza returned from living in the Ecuadorian capital Quito... He brought back two beautiful religious icons, the first was a statue of Jesus of Nazareth, the second depicted the Virgin of the Assumption. With the passage of years, customs and tradition she was rebaptised with the name Virign Asunta. The arrival of the statues from Ecuador was greeted by a procession, with drums and horns, but also in a religious spirit. Since then Chachapoyas has reprised the festival every year, with everyone in town joining the fervent celebrations. Fertur Peru Travel.

*******www.fertur-travel****/chachapoyas_tours.html Gocta Waterfall is known locally as La Chorrera the Spout, and lies in the Amazonas region of Peru. It drops over two stages, a total of 771 meters, and is now considered the third highest waterfall in the world. It was brought to worldwide attention by German researcher Stefan Ziemendorff, in 2006. The falls had been overlooked partly due to their remoteness, but there was another reason why they took so long to get noticed. Locals have always known of its existence but had kept it a secret because they feared myths and legends concerning a blond haired woman, a siren and her snake that guarded the waterfall. Once the discovery made headlines, authorities, local people and the private sector saw an opportunity to strengthen and expand tourism in the Amazonas region, adding another attraction to Kuelap as the main draw cards in northeastern Peru.

*******www.fertur-travel****/chachapoyas_tours.html The Sarcophagi of Karajia belong to the Chipuric archaeological complex, part of the Chachapoyas culture that dominated Northern Peru from the 11th to the 15th Century AD. The sarcophagi are 48 kilometers northeast of the city of Chachapoyas.. and stand out for their cliff side location and the unique methods used to inter the dead. They appear in groups of between 4 and 8 human figures, joined at the hip, all leaning with their backs to the cliff.. The sarcophagi consist of two parts, the head and the torso, which contains the funeral capsule and a human body in the fetal position. The head is crowned by a headdress or decoration, and each has a face with a forbidding expression. Together these sarcophagi are known by locals as the Purunmachos, which means old, uncivilized male bosses. Fertur Peru Travel.

*******www.fertur-travel****/chachapoyas_tours.html The Fortress of Kuelap is one of Perus hidden archaeological treaures, often called the Machu Picchu of the North Built on a mountain ridge at an altitude of 3000 meters above sea level, the fortress is proof of the incredible stoneworking skill of the Chachapoyas people, who dominated the region between 1000 and 1400 AD. The gigantic wall that protects the city includes a series of guard posts, a tower built overlooking a sheer cliff and three narrow entrances that forced invaders to enter in single file. The wall reaches a height of 8 meters and extends for more than 600 meters to completely encircle the ruins. The city inside is made entirely of stone, but in a very different architectural style from the Incas, with carvings of human faces and animal figures lining the main entrance passageway. A string of geometric shapes, rhomboid stonework is built into the walls of most buildings. The most common houses take the form of more than 400 large circular buildings, some of which have been reconstructed with conical thatched roofs to give visitors an idea of what they looked like when people were living here. Kuelaps remote location at the top of a cloud forest means it gets fewer visitors than the more famous attractions around Cusco, but those that make it here get a real sense of ancient life in an eerie, isolated setting, surrounded by orchids, moss-laden trees and bromeliads. The mix of ancient ruins and encroaching natural beauty creates a powerful impression. Its easy to imagine how the fortress remained impregnable to armies like the Wari and other invaders. It took an empire like the Incas to conquer Kuelap and the Chachapoyas people, but they continued to fight the invaders for decades after their defeat. Theyve left little of their language and culture to history, but their stone cities stand as their greatest monument. Fertur Peru Travel.
