Visit the Amazing Karajillas Sarcophagi


Karajias sarcophagi

The mysterious figures standing guard over a cliff face at Karajía reveal a morbid detail on second glance: human skulls perch on top of their stern, mask-like faces. These are in fact the unique tombs of ancient chieftains, part of the Chachapoya culture which was contemporary with the Incas. Set into this remote and inaccessible cliff, the striking sarcophagi face east to greet the rising sun. If there is time you may also be able to travel deeper into the tranquil countryside, to stop at the Pueblo de los Muertos, or ‘Village of the Dead’, where a collection of mounds topped with depictions of human faces marks another burial site.

Transfer in our private vehicle to the province of Luya-Lamud, continuing with our journey visiting the towns of Cohechan and Cruz Pata, from this point we walk for about 20 minutes until the funeral place of the Sarcophaguses of Karajia these belong to the Chachapoyas culture, this funeral style is considered unique on the world. afterward we will visit the caverns of Quiocta with 550 meters of deep, here it is possible to see the stalagmites and stalactites.
