KARAJIA & QUIOCTA CAVE




Your first stop is the town of Cruzpata, which is the launching point for the hike to the Karajia sarcophagi, 1000-year-old tombs embedded at the top of a cliff. Each sarcophagus stands almost 2 meters tall, are made of mud, and decorated with geometric shapes. You will eat lunch afterwards, and then it’s off to Quiocta Cave, a major natural attraction in the town of Lamud. The cave is extremely interesting, from an archeological and geological point of view, because of its location. There are cave paintings, usually shapeless, as well as animal and human bones at the cave entrance. The remains are a constant throughout the first section of the cave since the Chachapoyas used caves for burial sites. The first cave formations are seen nearly 300 meters from the mouth of the cave, including stalagmites, stalactites, flowstone, columns, and gours.You will spend the night at Casa Andina Chachapoyas.
