Kuelup ruinus

A travel blog entry by kasnsqueak on Jul 28, 2014

... attested. However by 8.30am the chaotic filling of the buses began and by 9am we were winding our way down the mountain to the turnoff towards Kuelap. The trip took about 2 hours to ascent the mountain roads up into the clouds. The roads are narrow unsealed and have no barriers and the sheer drops over the side make for interesting travel especially when other vehicles need to pass us. I so love the mountains and views here. We stop briefly at 11am in a village to order ...

... with some extensive natural caves within which had been found a large number of human remains. On our return from the ruins, we stopped at a local restaurant for lunch, where I tried (finally!) cuy - a delicacy of Ecuador and (I think originally) Peru. It was an interesting eat - it had a thick and tough but tasty skin, and hardly any meat, which was a light and very tender texture. This one was served with a peanut satay, but I have seen some in the street served skewered ...

... last
minute shopping and a runaway lorry rescue blocking the road.

The last couple of hours, all on single track dirt road quickly
gave views over a cliiffface settlement called Marco with houses and funerary
niches carved in, high up overlooking the river. Further on we could see Kuelap
high up on a rocky ridge, with funerary niches carved into a rocky bit below.
Also we could see 2 very steep paths zig-zagging up from the river to 3100m ...
