Chachapoyas Travel Guide: 31 reviews and 172 photos

My mum's friend was born in Chachapoyas which was the reason for our visit here but I discovered many other reasons to make the effort to reach Chachapoyas. For anyone interested in anthropology or archaeology this area of Peru is a goldmine! There are so many recently discovered and relatively unknown sites around Chachapoyas that can be explored without too many other people around. If you're sick of crowded tourist zones, this is the place to be to really get an up close and personal view of Peru.

The town of Chachapoyas itself is a beautiful place to wander around and get to know some locals and relax.

And the countryside around Chachapoyas is breathtakingly beautiful. Hire a car or wear your good walking shoes and explore!
