Chaskiventura - Peru Holidays offers you to discover the old Chachapuyo people. A long time ago, they reigned over a vast territory, between the rivers of Marañon (West and North) and Huallaga (East). They managed to create a valiant and progressive nation that was respected and feared. They opposed a relentless resistance to the Inca Empire: when the Inca Yupanqui tried to conquer them, but he was confronted to their strong opposition to join the Tahuantinsuyo that he could not defeat. Only the Inca Huayna Capac finally defeated them in the last years of the Empire. Nevertheless, he died executed in Tumipampa by two Sachapuyo warriors. Today, some signs of their existence remain. This is the case for instance of the Kuelap fortress - the biggest one they ever left - located at 3000 masl. Their tombstones built in the cliffs, such as the Revash complex, also reflect their dexterity. Their pieces of art and their architecture reflect an audacious and independent spirit that makes them different from their neighbours. Eventually, during this Peru travel, you will be able to discover the Leymebamba museum with its various mummies and their personal belongings: ceramics, textiles, wooden items, Khipus...
