Visit Peru’s other 'lost city'

While the crowds flock to Machu Picchu take a real adventure to the ruins of Kuélap, in the northern Andes. Predating Machu Picchu by some 900 years, Kuélap offers a glimpse of the diversity of Peru's Pre-Columbian civilisations.

Yes it’s famous and busy, but for a perfectly valid reason: Machu Picchu remains one of the world’s preeminent archaeological sites. In spite of the crowds, an expert guide will bring the place to life and help you make sense of the Inca’s incredible ingenuity. You’ll have the option of climbing the adjacent Huayna Picchu for spectacular views, and can return for a second day exploring if you wish.
