The Moche Route

Peru

5 days

Summary

Discover some of Peru’s most fascinating archaeological gems throughout the Northern Kingdoms region in Peru. The Moche and Chimu civilisations created their own unique cities, artwork and culture which rivals that of the Inca Empire. Therefore, Trujillo and Chiclayo, the Northern Kingdoms, are a must for history buffs.

Visit ceremonial monuments like the Royal Tombs, Tucume and Lord of Sipan from Chiclayo. From Trujillo visit Huaca del Sol y Huaca de la Luna, El Brujo and Chan Chan ruins- the largest city in pre-Columbian America. You could continue to Chachapoyas for a more in-depth understanding of Peru’s ancient cultures.
