Peru is famous around the world because of Machu Picchu, the beautiful Lost City of the Incas located in the south of the country. Nevertheless, also in Northern Peru there is an off-the-beaten-path archaeological complex that will amaze tourists: Chachapoyas. Besides the archaeological ruins, this area also offers visitors a charming colonial city, beautiful natural sites, and exciting adventure tours.
