Chavin Ruins Tour

Pre-Inca Chavin Ruins Tour - Full-Day Private Tour

Chavin de Huantar, a well-reputed archeological site is positioned at the elevation of 3,177 m (10,425 ft) and it is our main target on the Pre-Inca Chavin Ruins Tour.

River Mosna and Wacheksa make a junction nearby this place and the location of it in Peruvian Andes makes it attractive for the visitors.

At times in history, Chavin was considered as Hub of several trade routes due to the strategic location it carries. The location of the site is at a very ideal place nearby Callenjon de Huayna. The village of Chavin de Huantar is also adjacent to it. A recent roadway that is upgraded with asphalt material has increased the importance of this place manifold.

This site spanning over 12,000 sq. m (129,167 ft) has tremendous potential as it includes massive temple structures. The interior, subterranean space, courts, sunken plaza spaces and the pyramidal platforms are around a single axis. With the passage of time, flooding from the rivers has completely debilitated the stone architecture.

The mountainous location of the site has made it susceptible to destructive landslides and earthquakes.
