Seldom visited and far less famous than places like Cusco, here at Go Andes we believe that Chachapoyas will be one of the destinations of the future – so visit now before the secret gets out! Access is certainly more difficult than places like Cusco and the area is less adapted for tourism, but that only serves to make Chachapoyas a more adventurous and exciting place to visit.

The landscape surrounding the city is some of the most beautiful in the Andes, and Chachapoyas is a base for visits to the ancient site of Kuelap, matched only in size, grandeur and beauty by Machu Picchu. Another impressive feature is Gocta Waterfall, one of the ten highest waterfalls in the world, known only to Andean locals and kept secret from the outside world until very recently.
