Peruvian Explorer Add-ons:
Chan Chan & Sipan
We fly from Lima to the charming colonial city of Trujillo, where we spend the night. In the morning we explore the many archaeological sites in this untouristed area of the northern Peruvian coast. We visit the Moche pyramids—the Huaca del Sol, at one time the largest man-made structure in the Western Hemisphere, and the colorful Huaca del Luna. We also visit the Huari pyramids—Huaca del Dragón and Huaca La Esmeralda. Most impressive of all, is our visit to the vast ruins of the ancient imperial city of Chan Chan, the capital of the Chimú empire. We then drive up the coast to the bustling city of Chiclayo, to spend the night. In the morning, we visit the important archaeological site of Sipán where, in 1987, the undisturbed extravagant tomb of the priest, now called the “Lord of Sipán” was discovered, his remains clad in gold and lavished with valuables. Finally, we fly back to Lima.
