Chepen - Koslachek History

Why Köslachek?

Köslachek is a Stoned Fortress

Köslachek is the name of a stoned fortress from a Peruvian Pre-Hispanic civilization: Moche.  It is the highest fortress built by the Moche people before being conquered by the Incas. The fortress is located on top of a mountain. Chepen city is located on the skirts of this mountain.

Köslachek Tours was named after the mountain where Chepen was founded. Chepen is a city in the Peruvian North: Here our dream started!

From Chepén to California! Born as a Peruvian-American company, Köslachek Tours (KT) has offices in California & Peru: Since its birth, KT has continuously been building bridges between Peru and the United States.

After many years, our dream continues: We offer you the tour of your dreams. Pack up & come with us! We will do everything for you! Just chill, enjoy the trip, drink and eat at Food Heavens: Peru.

I Love Köslachek Tours!

I highly recommend Köslachek Tours to anyone who is interested in archeology, history, and Peruvian culture. Köslachek gave me the opportunity to see the real Peru: visit off-the-beaten-path places, have meaningful interactions with the locals, taste delicious homemade food, and practice my Spanish.
The tour itinerary was very balanced and included a wide range of activities from exploring archeological sites and world-class museums to doing social work at a local school and learning how to dance Marinera.

Köslachek Was Awesome!

Our North Peru tour was really fun, educational, and engaging! I was impressed by the archeological sites we visited. The food was delicious. Koslachesk is tourism with purpose: We paid a visit to children´s shelter. A detailed itinerary and important information was provided in a very informative welcome package.
That made me feel very prepared for traveling in Northern Peru. Köslachek Tours took excellent care of our group from start to finish. The hotels were clean, safe, and conveniently located. The food was outstanding. I can’t wait to explore more places with Köslachek Tours!

Köslachek: Best Tour Ever!

Traveling with Köslachek was awesome! Great cultural experience! Köslachek Tours is the best experiential travel company in the Northern Peru. They take you to see how people live in the small towns and big cities of North Peru.
The tour helps us interact with some other local people so we get a more authentic factor and experience in comparison with some other tours. Also, we appreciate the help towards learning and improving our Spanish throughout the whole experience of our tour.

I Recommend Köslachek Tours!

I recommend Köslachek Tours to everyone! I was impressed by all the logistics involved and the experience of each visit. Some of the excavations had their particular guides working onsite and where kind enough to go through the whole history with us.
Our guides were so resourceful to find people always happy to teach us about their history. They really took their time and we did not feel we were rushing from one point to another. Certainly a different kind of experience that gets your closer to the northern Peruvian heritage.

Köslachek: Our Best Decision

Traveling with Köslachek: Our best decision–ever! My girlfriend and I wanted to visit Peru to continue our Spanish immersion process. Köslachek gave us the opportunity to practice with locals during the entire trip. Our Spanish has improved greatly!
We have visited the Northern Peru. Food was delicious! We will travel with Köslachek again. They will be soon opening new tour routes with more cultural tourism and immersion travel. We can´t wait to go on another Köslachek Tours adventure.

A Beautiful Experience!

In summary, a beautiful experience with positive results! My wife and I visited archaeological sites, ate and drank the most delicious food and drinks—and as it wasn´t god enough, we practiced our Spanish and learned more about the great culture behind the language.
You don’t wanna learn Spanish? That´s fine! They´ll use English if you prefer. We just took advantage of this rare opportunity to immerse ourselves. As middle agers, we thought it was gonna be difficult to get into an immersion program.
