LAKE OF THE CONDORS
7d-6n

Day 1  Cajamarca – Leymebamba
Airport picks up service in Cajamarca . Our bus climbs the sweeping cold cordillera and descends into an oven dry valley to cross the main trunk Marañon River.  Here a coastal Chimu Colony uses their irrigation skills to grow exotic tropical fruits in a micro ecological system. We go up to Leymebamba to spend the night.  Night in Centro Mallqui (BL,D)

Day 2 
Lake of the Condors
We saddle up early for an all day expedition into the 15,000 sq. km zone that was previously unexplored a few years ago and arrive at the Lake of the Condors. This supernatural mystic place is a huge pristine mountain lake with the mausoleum chullpa perched high on a cliff above it. Our camp is by the lake in a rustic facility.  (B,BL,D)

Day 3  Lake of the Condors
We climb up to the chullpa which the Discovery Channel documented in the 1998 recovery of  219 mummies from this damp cloud forest. Despite being behind a waterfall in the rainy season, these mummies were better preserved than ones from Egypt's desert pyramids.  This discovery made the zone famous because the entire area had never been filmed or seen by the outside world before this.  (B, L, D)

Day 4  Leymebamba
We leave camp for the long trip back to Leymebamba on horseback.  Night in Casa Mallqui in Leymebamba.  (B, BL,D)

Day 5  Leymebamba- Museum Centro Mallqui – Choctamal
Now we get to see Peru's brand new Centro Mallqui Museum that the Austrians donated for this unique 1998 discovery at Lake of the Condors (you have seen on the Discovery Channel). The 219 mummies are here along with many artifacts. On the way to Choctamal we will see the Revash Ruins.  Night in our Choctamal Marvelous Spatuletail Lodge  gateway to Kuelap and Gran Vilaya.  (B, BL, D)

Day 6  Choctamal – Kuelap – Chachapoyas
We will spend the day at Fortress Kuelap known as "the Machu Picchu of the North". It has over 400 buildings inside 3 levels of walls, and is the largest stone structure of the Americas.  Orchids and bromeliads cover the walls and trees inside this fortress.  Night in 3 stars Colonial Mansion.
