HD Tour to the Sarcófagos de Karajía (Quiocta)

TRAVEL SCHEDULE

Start 8:00 am, finish 17:30; duration 9h30 min.
After leaving Chachapoyas, you travel in about 1h30 min. in the direction of Quiocta. The scenic road is partly paved and partly dirt road. It takes about 10 min. from the parking to walk towards the entrance of the cave. Inside the cave you walk a little more than an hour back and forward passing by beautifully shaped and colored stalactites and stalagmites.
From Quitocta you drive in about 20 min. to Cruzpata, from where you have to walk for about 45 min. along a dirt trail until the closest viewpoint towards the sarcophagi. Note: one third of this trail is quite steep down.
The Sarcofagos de Karajia are 7 monumental coffins of about 2.5m high. Their location isn’t very easy to reach (at an altitude of 24 m above the trail) and therefore they were still found in very good conditions.
The sarcophagi are decorated with geometric figures and contain mummies, ceramics and other objects that were given to the death for their journey in the afterlife.
