Chachapoyas & Kuelap city

Chachapoyas and Kuelap citadel – 4 days

DAY 1: Arrive to the Chachapoyas – Jaen Airport.

Arrive to the Airport of Jaen city and transfer to Chachapoyas city (4 hrs of driving). Arrive to Chachapoyas around 17:30 PM and transfer to your hotel.

DAY 2: Full day to Karajia sarcophagus and Quiocta caves.

Breakfasts. We drive down to the Utcubamba and cross over to the neighbouring Province of Luya. From the village of Lamud we drive on to the village of Cruz Pata, where a relative short walk (55min) takes us down to Karajia. These striking sarcophagi, sculptured like humans have become an icon of the area. For 750 years they have looked towards the rising sun and undoubtedly are the resting place for some elite members of Chachapoya warriors.
After this visit we get into the Quiocta caves, where we will find incredible limestone needles with different shapes and sizes, known as stalactites and stalagmites. Return to your hotel in Chachapoyas.

DAY 3: Excursion to Kuelap Citadel (Full day).

Breakfasts. Excursion to the fortress of Kuelap, which is the largest stone structure in South America and estimably containing three times more building material than the Great Pyramid of Egypt. Kuelap is far larger, more mysterious, and higher then Machu Picchu, and probably more significant in the far older era it served.
We will use the new and modern cable car from the town of Tingo Nuevo and have a guided tour around the citadel (3 hours). After the visit return using the cable car to Tingo Nuevo town and then drive to Chachapoyas city.
