Tortuous Decent

The site of Chavín itself is located at 3150 m of altitude in the narrow canyon of the Mosna River, just at the point where it widens slightly and the major Wacheqsa stream joins it. The site occupies a relatively flat river terrace, which has been substantially modified to accommodate the central part of the site, which lies within an area about 500x500 m.
