Caverna de Quiocta, Chachapoyas
(3.3/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Bring a flashlight and explore Caverna de Quiocta, a system of spacious caverns filled with interesting rock formations, stalactites, and stalagmites. The caverns used to be ceremonial burial sites, so you can view ancient skulls and bones on the cave floor or in small niches in the walls. Besides a flashlight to illuminate the dark chambers, you'll need a decent pair of boots, as the cavern floors are very muddy and slippery from bat droppings. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Caverna de Quiocta and many more Chachapoyas attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Chachapoyas trip itinerary builder.

  • This cavern, must be assessed not only for being big or beautiful, but so it was to the Chachapoyas, there buried their dead, were rituals and was their means of communication with the world below. It is full of energy and magic, is worth that income also has cave paintings.
