Description

Chavin de Huantar are archaeological ruins that the UNESCO designated as a World Heritage Site. Join me on this 1 day hiking adventure to discover the ruins of this intriguing place.

Chavin was the name of the culture that inhabited this valley amongst the Peruvian Andes, between 1,500 and 300 B.C. The archaeological ruins we will visit are a former site of worship. And it is one of the earliest and most famous pre-columbian sites.

Walking through this fantastic place is hypnotizing. The striking structures, complex carved stones and ornamental sculptures everywhere, make it a true delight to see.

Also, we’ll explore the Stone of Chiquechinchay, the nailed Heads, and the Lanzón de Chavin. And we’ll cross mesmerizing labyrinths and internal galleries, while admiring the dazzling columns and ceremonial spots.

We’ll also visit the Chavin de Huantar Temple, a magnificent structure of over 3,000 years. Here, we’ll encounter, splendid architecture wonders, like subterranean galleries and hidden squares. Other marvellous things we will explore include the Lanzon Monolithic and Portada de las Falcónidas.

Thereupon, we’ll visit enchanting villages such as Catac, Recuay Ticapampa, Kercos and Chavin. There we learn more about the local culture. And, we’ll visit other spots such as the Querococha lake and the Mosna river. Moreover, we’ll explore the White Andes, right by the Cahuish tunnel, the highest tunnel in the world with 480 meters of longitude.

So, if you want to join me on this cultural expedition to one of Peru’s most fascinating spots, just send me a request. It will be my pleasure to guide you across this splendid place.

Please note, this is a group trip. We can arrange a private program for you, just mention it in the message. Or perhaps you are you looking for a longer adventure? Then, check this 13-day Santa Cruz trek that I guide too.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
