Chavín de Huántar is located in the north-central sierra of Peru, sandwiched between the desert coast - one of the dryest deserts of the world - and the humid tropical Amazonian lowlands to the east. The famed Andean prehistoric states, culminating with the expansive Inca empire, were primarily situated in coastal and sierra environments.
