Don’t miss the experience to explore one city full of Pre-Inca culture. The Chiclayo & Lord of Sipán tour show you the most representative places where the Mochica’s culture was developed.

Chiclayo city is the capital of the Lambayeque department located in the northwest of Peru.

The city was founded in 1720 as “Santa María de los Valles de Chiclayo” by decree of the President José de la Mar. In 1835, the city was awarded the “Heroic City”. It is currently known as the “Friendship´s Capital” because of its charming people.

Lambayeque was the Mochica culture’s birthplace which possibly decayed because of a devastating “El Niño” phenomenon. Due to its geographical location, it also had influence of civilizations from Cajamarca, therefore, we will find remains of the Lord of Sipan, ancient Mochica ruler of the III century.

On this Chiclayo tour you will visit the Lord of Sipán Museum, one of the most beautiful museums in Peru, which have a lot of gold pieces and human bones found on the tombs.

HEALTH

The Peruvian Andes are at high altitudes, so it is necessary to take precautions to avoid altitude sickness or “soroche”. It is important to rest a few hours, to walk slowly and to eat light before beginning any tour. We also recommend drinking coca tea that helps with acclimatization. Even though water is potable in most cities, it is advisable to drink bottled water to avoid any problems.
