The area between Cajamarca, Celendín, and Chachapoyas has much to offer tourists: archaeological sites left behind by different cultures, beautiful lakes, waterfalls, incredible rock formations, part of the Inca Trail (Qhapaq ñan), thermal baths, traditional markets, rivers, many different types of birds, flowers and much more. With all of these things to see and experience, it’s definitely worth staying a few days in this region. This area is not the usual route most tourists take, which is probably why it is still very traditional and has preserved its authenticity despite the passing of time.
We want to help tourists visit these beautiful places as well as offer and contribute to an alternative source of income for local people through tourism. The project is not only focused on providing tours, it also has the mission of using local services, promoting the natural beauty of the areas, helping preserve the traditional culture and historical wealth, while encouraging social responsibility in every aspect of the project.
If you are interested in tours in other areas of the country, we also have different alternatives, classis tours as well as responsible travel choices, in different parts of Peru. Please see our menu of tours in Cusco, Arequipa, Puno, Trujillo and many more!
By going on any of the tours offered by Orange Tours you are supporting Proyecto Yannick and the local Communities since 5% of the profits from the tours go to this project which helps people with Down syndrome and other disabilities in Celendín as well as local communities in the area.
