It’s been awhile since Machu Picchu. And after plenty of hiking, plazas and long bus rides I’ve realized that in satisfying my traveling real desires — visiting Peru’s less known archaeological sites is a must.

I used the colonial city of Trujillo as my base to visit Chan Chan and Huaca de La Luna.

And perhaps the most surprising of the bunch was the Sipan archeological site near the city of Chiclayo not far from Trujillo. These are ancient tombs with skeletons of important figures!
