Caverna de Quiocta, Chachapoyas

3.5
#1 of 6 in Parks in Chachapoyas
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 was an adventure tour practically, as we entered the cavern everything was dark, before we were given some special boots and lanterns. The floor was muddy and water was running, it is impressive to see the climbing sycamore formed throughout the cavern: ceiling, walls and floor. I was a little afraid of the fact when the lanterns went out everything was totally dark I wanted to die but then you feel an intense peace. The cavern is approx. 600 m long. You can't miss it.

  • Being my first time in such a cave was exciting and the extension of the tour surprised me. You have to be very careful when walking as it is completely dark only with lanterns you enter and the mud thick.
