Alpine Meadow, En Route to Kuelap Fortress, Peru

Alpine Meadow, En Route to Kuelap Fortress, Peru

The footpath to Kuelap has stunning, panoramic views of the Andes. This view is facing west, but if you face east, you can see the peripheral arms of the Amazon.

Built by the Chachapoyas ("the people of the clouds"), fierce contemporaries of the Incas, the fortress of Kuelap was all about the views. Whether battling dominating Incas or head-shrinking Amazonians, the Chachapoyas situated their most important city of 3,000 souls in the center of a 360 degree view.
