Caral and its 4,000 years stone pyramids is 200 Kms north from the main capital, the trip may take 4 hours, so to profit the destination for photography is better to do it in two days.
The Supe river valley comes from the Andes and in its lower lands many constructions were built, most of them from the Caral era (around 2500 BC) at both sides of the river.
