Area MapFurther, it has been suggested that Chavín de Huántar lies along a natural access route between the coast and eastern tropics. While the Mosna River, on which Chavín lies, will eventually lead to the Amazon, it is at best a tortuous route. In fact, a much more direct and easily transited route is found slightly south of the Chavín area. Chavín can just as easily be thought of as being in a location of relatively difficult access.
