Panoramic view of Chavín valley - see panorama instructions for navigation help.

Looking down at Chavín de Huántar from a ceremonial platform of unknown date high on the hills to the east. The Mosna River drains from left to right, and is joined by the Wachecsa River, flowing from the west. In the distance are snow-capped peaks of the Cordillera Blanca mountain chain. The small modern town of Chavín de Huántar (population of approximately 1000) lies just north of the site.
