Caverna de Quiocta, Chachapoyas

3.5
#1 of 7 in Parks in Amazonas Region
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.

  • A pleasant experience. Each visit becomes something new to discover new tracks and the change in temperature outside and inside. It is recommended to form a group to pay the transport to a single account from Lamud.

  • You should visit. The rubber boots and headlight are obligatory. I recommend take a stick or a trekking stick. There is nothing to worry about, except get muddy! Linda experience especially for children.

  • It's very nice! It's amazing how nature itself makes the escalatitas and the escalamitas and they are beautiful things!
