    Impressive relics of extinct civilisations characterise the start of your expedition when, after setting out from Salaverry, you will explore the Dragon Temple Huaca and Chan Chan*.

The two temples of the highly developed culture of the Mochica, which you will discover in the Moche Valley with the Pyramid of the Sun and of the Moon*, date back to an even earlier period. Built from millions of clay bricks, the Pyramid of the Sun is regarded as the largest solid building on the American continent, whereas the Pyramid of the Moon is famous for its radiant paintings and frescoes. Precious cultural objects which are followed by the precious treasures of nature.
