Included

Transportation, guide, entry ticket, lunch.

Operation

All year round.

We will go to a town called Cruz Pata, and then, we will continue towards the burial site of Karajia. We will enjoy a panoramic view of Luya’s main square along the way. Cruz Pata, known as the Crosses Plateau, is the starting point of our journey by horse to get to Karajia; it takes 30 min. approximately.

We will see Karajia sarcophagi, which are part of Chachapoyas pre-inca culture; they are made of stone, wood and clay, and have an anthropomorphic shape; they are unique for their enormous size (up to 2,5 meters high) and careful elaboration. Even though time has past, being on top of a cliff with difficult access has allowed these constructions to be well preserved. We will go back to have lunch in the city of Luya. Then, we will visit Quiocta Caverns, a capricious work of nature, located in the district of Lamud, Luya province. Inside these caverns, there are seven rooms with stalagmites and stalactites; each one has a different name due to its curious forms.

Restrictions:
Horse: Maximum weight: 100 kg. Quiocta cavern: Not suitable for claustrophobics.
