The Pre-Columbian Chachapoyas culture, conquered in the 15th century by the Incas, has left a landscape scattered with villages and burial sites which until recently has been largely overlooked by archaeologists.
The winding rivers and creek beds carve the terrain, headwaters of fuel for the mighty Amazon River. The few and far between roads and paths scar a landscape where ancient civilizations arose and fell. Remote and oasitic stone ruins hide beneath the bromeliads.
Hike into the cloud forest to the newly discovered Gocta Waterfall, considered the third largest waterfall in the world.
A journey to Chachapoyas, Land of Cloud Peoples, and an unforgettable adventure into ancient mysteries marked deep in a lost civilization that cries for discovery.
Anthropologist Peter Lerche, author, historian, explorer, and authority on the religious world of pre-Inca Chachapoya, has lived in Chachapoyas over the past 25 years. Dr. Lerche's work as Director of the Department of Conservation of Archaeological Monuments and his research studying the Chachapoyas culture have resulted in the establishment of The Camayoc Foundation.
