Pre-Incan Ruins


About an hour’s walk outside Chari are some pre-Incan ruins, reached by walking through town and turning left at the enormous boulder that creates a small cave. Follow this path to the cemetery, keep left until you gain the ridge, then continue 200m up to the ruins. To avoid suspicion it’s best to advise locals where you’re headed before setting off.
