Gocta Lodge Tour Programs: Chachapoyas and the Andes

Jungle and cloud forest blanket Chachapoyas, and provided cover for ancient civilizations. Hike through the dense wilderness to see what they left behind. On a Gocta Lodge tour, your informed guide can tell you about the jungle’s hidden worlds — a fortress that held its own against the Inca, and a mythical waterfall that hosts a mermaid.

You can choose from the following three itineraries. The shortest of these itineraries takes you to Gocta Waterfalls and the Kueláp Fortress. Pick one of the longer itineraries for a trip that includes stops to Leymebamba, Revash, and Karajia. During each of the itineraries you’ll have accommodations at the plush Gocta Lodge.

Gocta Waterfall has two tiers, and cascades over 2,530 feet (771 meters), which makes it one of the tallest waterfalls in the world. Until 2005, only locals knew of the waterfall’s existence. Hikes to the base of the fall culminate at a misty plunge.

Kuelap Fortress is an enormous fortress with solid walls. From the outside, all you can see are the massive walls that now hold back profusions of jungle growth. Archeologists believe the Chachapoyas people lived here from 500 through 1570 A.D. Once you enter the fortress, you’ll see the ruins of stone buildings, on a site overlooking the Utcubamba Valley.

On visits to Leymebamba, tours stop by the local museum so the group has a chance to observe pre-Inca mummies found nearby. Revash has tombs built into the side of the canyon, with distinct mausoleum roofs that natives painted red many centuries ago. These are situated in a fairly inaccessible part of the canyon, but archeologists managed to excavate around 200 bodies from the caves. Karajia has some of its rulers entombed inside highly stylized statues. Scattered around these tombs you can still see bones, including skulls mounted above the tombs.
