Chachapoyas is a town in the Amazonas region of Peru. It is a good base to explore the various sights in the surroundings: Kuelap, Karajia, Revash, Gocta waterfall etc.

The culture of the Chachapoyas dates back to 750–800AD and developed in an Andean cloud forest of the current Amazonas Department. The word Chachapoyas is derived from the Quechua words “sacha" and "Puyus” which mean "cloud forest". That is why the Chachapoyas are often called the “Cloud People” or the “Warriors of the Clouds” as well.
