How to Reach

By plane

The two major airlines, Lan Peru and Star Peru, operate daily flights from Lima to Chiclayo. A taxi should cost PES/2 for the 1km journey into the city centre.

By bus

All the major bus lines are present in Chiclayo but most have their own terminal spread out over the City. Linea is on Av. Bolognesi 638 One block west of Linea is the Terminal for most north- or eastbound busses. Movil is around the corner opposite the Metro supermarket (LP says Av. Bolognesi 199 but I think it is Av. Jose Balta)

The tomb is in Sipán's Huaca Rajada, an area in Chiclayo.The Lord of Sipán tomb is a Moche culture site in Peru. Some archaeologists hold it to be one of the most important archaeological discoveries in this region of the world in the last 30 years, as the main tomb was found intact and untouched by thieves.Sipán is located in the northern part of Peru, close to the coast, in the middle of the Lambayeque Valley, 35 km east of Chiclayo, Peru. Four tombs have been found in Sipán's Huaca Rajada. This was a burial mound, a kind of mausoleum, built by the Moche culture. Its people ruled the northern coast of Peru from around 1 AD to 700 AD.
