This is well off the beaten track and its approx 1.30 hours from chachapoyas most of which is on gravel roads with lots of twists and turns and all the potholes this included! Once you reach the site it is approx 3km trek To reach the site which is mainly down hill over rough terrain Take your binoculars or have... 更多
What an interesting grouping of sarcophaguses, 4 groups although there some were damaged in the last earthquake. (there were originally 7 in the picture above). Its an easy downhill jaunt to view them, coming back to your transportation can be strenuous.
We drove here, and it was easy to get side-tracked. Do-able to drive here for sure, with lots of scenery. It was an easy, short hike to the cliffs where these stunning sarcophagi stare out over the landscape. The Tillandsia rauhii bromeliads cling to the vertical stone cliffs, adding to the rugged look.
If you are a true history buff or if you can enjoy the excursion for the walk to the sarcophogi (2km each way) it's a good trip but if not, it is about an hour and a half each way and not for everyone. However, when you buy this tour you normally purchase it with the Cavern of Quiocta which... 更多
This is a very impressive archeological site. However, the cliff is slightly falling down with the sarcophages and no protection whatever seemingly is schedule to avoid that. So after each raining season the risk is high that the last remnant of sarcophages will disappear. So hurry up to visit...
Beautiful site and very interesting and unique standing tombs, perched high on the cliff but still very visible from the path below. The location is off the beaten path (long drive from Chachapoyas, plus a bit of a hike to get there), but for us it was definitively worth seeing.
Really very stately monuments of past people. Access was and remains difficult. Walk is demanding, about 30 minutes downhill, and then the return. But worth it. Australian eucalyptus everywhere in the valley!
I give this a five star because it's one of those trips that you will look back on fondly more for the fun and games getting there. It's literally in the middle of no-where and the locals couldn't give two craps about it so there's no signposts or anything and unless you have a good understanding of spanish (being spoken... 更多
The drive to Cruzpata where the Sarcofagos are located takes more than 2 hours over dirt roads. Once you get there you take a short 1k hike downhill to the rock where you can see the sarcofagos. They are small and its just the 5 of them. Considering the long drive it wasn't really worth it.
