A full day's tour starting in the valley of Utcubamba heading towards the village of Lamud. From here, at a distance, you can see the standing mud coffins of Lamud decorated with anthropomorphic reliefs and with feline paws and human heads. The Sachapuyans, after placing the coffins in these strategic locations on the cliffs, destroyed the paths which led to them thus avoiding any disturbance of their dead. After lunch, return to Chachapoyas.

To get a good view of the whole complex, a climb to the Kuelap watch-tower, where the gigantic outer walls and the whole extension of this former fortress can be fully appreciated. In the afternoon, return to Tingo and then to Chachapoyas. Accommodation.
