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.
After our peaceful stay at Huembo Lodge, we embarked on a three hour drive to the Karajia Mummies. The first hour or so of our drive was on paved roads, and reasonably smooth. Then we turned onto the 20 km long gravel road to the Karajia mummies! The first 40 minutes was a reasonably smooth ride up the twisting and... 更多
It's pretty amazing to see these sarcophagi looking out over the valley and to realize they've been keeping watch for centuries. Just for that, I'm glad I went. But I think you really have to consider whether or not it's worth it to you given that it's a bumpy two-hour ride over dirt roads that left me feeling sick, and... 更多
Long drive and walk to get to a cliff side to see the Sarcfagos. Luckily the drive is spectacular and the village site at the trail head is charming
