Walking to Kuelap


By Greg Francisco


The trip of a lifetime...so far

Welcome to Walking to Kuelap, a web page documenting a 950 mile (1,500 km) journey on foot through the heart of South America. It will begin near Cayambe, Ecuador and end in Chachapoyas, Peru and the ancient ruins of Kuelap. The Walk is expected to take about 4 months, Jan to May, 2017. Beginning and ending in the Andes mountains, a substantial portion of the trip will also traverse the Amazon. Follow along as Greg, Sergio and Baltasar report on their trip. Please take some time to explore our interactive MapShare page, blog entries and pictures. Click on a sugar cube or carrot to send Baltazar a treat. And dont forget to send your comments so that we can read them on the road.
