Overview Itinerary Pricing


Day 1 : Full day to Chavin to tour the Chavin de Huantar ruins.

Visiting: Huaraz

With our guide, we drive south along the Callejon de Huaylas until we reach Ccatac. We take a detour east and pass through the Cordillera Blanca, by Querococha Lake through the Kawish tunnel at 4,550 meters (14,924 ft). Once on the other side, the Callejon de Conchucos comes into view, with many of its Andean villages such as Tambillos and Machaq.

After an hour, we arrive at the village of Chavin where we find the temple of the same name. This place holds many mysteries in its interesting carvings and architecture and is a World Heritage site. Recently work undertaken has uncovered a labyrinth of tunnels and caves inside the main mound that overlooks the ceremonial plaza. After visiting this site we will also visit the new site museum located in the outskirts of the village. In the afternoon we will return to Huaraz. Lunch included during the visit.
