Anew addition to the Kuelap experience, the cable car system from the small jungle community of Tingo Nuevo officially began operating in March 2017. Previously, the only way to reach this mountaintop jungle fortress was via a multi-day trek or two- to three-hour bumpy bus ride from Chachapoyas. Today, the journey by cable car to Kuelap is no longer than 20 minutes.

Enjoy the aerial ride into the cloud forests and through the lush, Amazon vegetation as you ascend to 3,000 m.a.s.l. (9,843 feet). The getting there is almost as spectacular as the pre-Inca ruins that await you.

Your final destination is the Kuelap fortress, a massive complex that sits atop an Andean ridge overlooking the green landscape and Utcubamba Valley below. The Chachapoyas culture, a civilization that flourished between 900 and 1400 AD are believed to have been the architects of this impressive ruin of 20-meter high walls and circular stone houses.
