Kuelap is an amazing place to visit. Everyone goes to Machu Picchu, but this is almost just as good - being pre-Incan rather than Incan. It's not easy to get to, but that's the point, and adds to the charm. There is a long drive up a gravel road.
There is a 15 minute walk up to the city, and the altitude may mean you need to take your time. It's a lot simpler and less touristy than Machu Picchu, and there are stalls selling drinks and snacks at the top before you go into the city. It's less well restored, but again, that adds to the experience.
There is a new visitor's centre which provides some helpful guidance, although our guide was very good.
