Chavín de Huantar Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 18 photos

One of my last things I did near Huaraz was taking a tour to the Archeological ruins of Chavin de Huantar. The tour takes you through the Andes along a wonderfull road full of exciting stuff, such as Laguna Querococha that lies 4000 meters above sea level. Around Huaraz, everything seems to be high above the clouds :). Anyway, the ruins of Chavin de Huantar are amazing. There's even an altar stone that has perfect correlations with the Orion Constallation. Read more about it down in the tips and view the pics of the travelogue.

    I seemed to have taken the same tour. I found it quite affordable, especially when you consider how amazing Chavin is. I liked your photos.

    Hi Fernando. I loved your Chavin de Huantar page. Maybe you can tell me more at the Baltimore event in September. Greetings.
