Take a Walk in the Clouds in Chachapoyas

Tucked away in the Andean foothills of Northeast Peru, Chachapoyas has long been overshadowed by hot spots like Machu Picchu. But that just means you’ll have the magical place all to yourself. The former colonial settlement is now a little market town shrouded in clouds. The area is just dripping with beauty; the rainforest is rich with colorful bromeliads and ferns and dotted with pristine waterfalls. Visit the ruins near Chachapoyas (also referred to as "Warriors of the Clouds") — the fortress of Kuelap is the runner-up to Machu Picchu when it comes to archeological remains. After your trek, ride horses, fish in crystal-clear waters or simply relax in the serenity of this rainforest oasis.
