Everybody knows about Machu Picchu. With Myths and Mountains, you can explore Peru’s hidden pre-Incan history, known as the mysterious Wari Culture, on this 10-day adventure to lesser-known archaeological treasures.
Whereas many people have experienced the inspiring Inca work at Machu Picchu, not many have marveled at the 6 story friezes at the Moche’s Huaca de la Luna or stood in the massive crumbling courtyard of the Chimu’s grand Chan Chan.
Be one of the few to discover Peru’s lesser traveled north with an in-depth look at its ancient cultures and the mysteries they left behind. Your journey will take you to the beautiful northern cities of Trujillo, Chiclayo and Ayacucho where you will wander in the shadows of captivating Pre-Incan sites as well as enjoy friendly locals and gorgeous scenery.
