Chachapoyas Overview

Chachapoyas Land of the "Cloud People". Capital of Amazonas is the doorway of adventure into a world of lost civilizations and ancient ruins. Snowcapped volcanoes and glacier mountain peaks barricade Chachapoyas to the south. River gorges cut the Andes Mountains parallel to Chachapoyas on the west. Amazon jungle lands push to the east and north boundaries of the Chachapoyas region. Even in our modern-day geographical boundaries isolate the Chachapoyas region.

Chachapoyas is one of Peru's oldest cities. It still maintains a majestic Spanish influence due in a large part because of its isolation from tourism. At an altitude of 2335 meters, Chachapoyas is a prosperous city with sugar cane, coffee, orchids and tile-roofed buildings.
