Chachapoyas - Huancas, Belen, Karaji and Pueblo de los Muertos

Beautiful walk yesterday to the nearby village of Huancas, stunning views of the Sonche Canyon. Hell of a day today, hard rain most of it, but some amazing scenarios on a tour I took...

At some viewpoint in Huancas:

Two panoramic views of the great Sonche Canyon:

And today got up at 4:30 to make it first to the beautiful meanders at Huallay Belen:

The mist is everywhere at the Chachapoyas region:

The 1800-year-old sarcophagus at Karaji:

Human bones remaining at the site:

Closer view to the sarcophagus, look at the skulls on top of them:

After Karaji went to the Pueblo de los Muertos. Here a view of the valley from the site:

Wild orchids growing on the side of the mountains:

Ruins of the houses still standing literaly on the cliff:

More sarcophagus, they all contain human mummies:

 By the pics is hard to tell, but I was one meter away from the abyss:

The rain made it a hard day, but definitely worth it:

My next destination might be Cajamarca, but I am not sure yet when i will be going...
