PHOTO GALLERY OF THE GREAT PAJATÈN

El distrito de Huicungo acondiciona un local para difundir la riqueza del patrimonio
cultural y natural que encierra el Gran Pajatén, una de las maravillas culturales del
Perú, puesta en valor para su uso turístico y con fines de investigación.
El Gran Pajatén fue descubierto por el Juanjuino “Eduardo Peña Meza”, cuando
buscaba una vía de salida entre la selva y la costa, Llegó al complejo del Gran
Pajatén, desde ese hallazgo comunicó a diferentes autoridades y así se supo en
Juanjui, Trujillo, Lima, la existencia de esas ciudadela llamada Pajatèn, en honor a
este descubrimiento, el 5 de diciembre de 1932, Eduardo Peña Meza es
incorporado como socio correspondiente de la Sociedad Geográfica de Lima.
En 1985, un equipo dirigido por el departamento de antropología de la Universidad
de Colorado comenzó un importante proyecto de investigación en el Gran Pajatén
y sus alrededores en el Parque Nacional Río Abiseo. La expedición tuvo mucha
publicidad que condujo a nuevos debates de la apertura del sitio al turismo. Una
expedición televisiva peruana en 1990, despejó nuevamente la vegetación
protectora del sitio y dañó más las ruinas. Actualmente, existen planes para la
construcción de varias carreteras y la infraestructura turística en la región, pero
