About Pre Inca path from Chachapoyas to Levanto town

Previous Entry Pre Inca path from Chachapoyas to Levanto town Feb. 20th, 2014 @ 09:47 pm Next Entry
December 2013: I was told there was a pre-inca path from outside Chachapoyas town to Levanto (another town). It was true: the walkin distance is around 3 to 4 hours, but I took the wrong fork and ended up in Quipachacha... another smallest town with very nice people that were making their nativity scene when I arrived. They use plants and branches they gather from the hills around. I was lucky to find transport back to Chachapoyas because in the way from Chachapoyas to Levanto/Quipachacha you unlikely will see any people.
A little dog walked with me most of the way, I left it in Quipachahca because it is common these doggies walk long distances on the mountains going and coming back to home.

This is a photo of the best part of the path, it is so ancient that most of it is destroyed:


Chachapoyas culture was conquered by the Incas before the arriving of the spanish conquerors in XV century.

I took Apple Jack and King Sombra wiht me:
Current Location: Chachapoyas - Perú
Current Music: Fito y los Fipidalis - La Casa Por El Tejado

I'd love to get down there and visit that part of the world one day. I'd love to go someplace where I could walk on a stone path that is over a thousand years old. Great shots as always Yelinna.

Hi Chris!!

Thanks for commenting! The photos are from the best parts of the path, most of it is destroyed. It was nice to find parts in good conditions after all :D
Yes, walking on a 1000 years old path is amazing!. But if this path was made by the Chachapoyas people it is probably 800-500 years old :)

Greeting
