Sarcofagos de Karajia, Chachapoyas

(4.1/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Sarcofagos de Karajia highlights the coffins of the Chachapoyas culture. Found in in a ravine, the sarcophagi sit in the Amazonian Luya district. Drive up to the remote archaeological site and hike up to the face of the cliff where the ancient burial site stands. Observe the 2.5 m (8.2 ft) tall sarcophagi, made to look like human figures, most of them still well preserved. Bring suitable footwear for the steep hike and take time to experience the panoramic views of the green valley below. Sarcofagos de Karajia is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Chachapoyas Edition.

  • It is believed that these sarcophagi will only be but NO, Karajia presents you more surprises than you can imagine, more sarcophagi and an interesting story that you can't miss. Visit this wonder next to the cavern from Quiocta La Casona Monsante Hotel Boutique

  • It is a very popular place among tourists and why we visit it. However, there are other sarcophagi more interesting as the de San Jerónimo where there are no tourists.

  • Since childhood I looked at with these culture-filled sarcophagi encyclopedias. Now that was given the opportunity to learn about it is something completely magical since you back in the past and imagine as they have to carry their dead and that culture of sacrifice his life by leaving the legacy that today exists. They have to go, you get to the point of payment of tickets low 1 km and ready to enjoy! You say that you use horses but is somewhat optional!
