architectural, travel, landscape

This is the Main Mound at the Late Archaic (3,000-1,800 B.C.) site of Caballete in the Fortaleza Valley of Peru. This face would have overlooked the river valley and been the first thing people entering from the coast would have seen. Five thousand years ago this mound would have looked like a monumental platformed structure with an atrium at the top and an impressive edifice made up of giant stone blocks.
Note: The GigaPan was shot under rainy/misty conditions.
