This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Sarcofagos de Karajia, Luya, Chachapoyas Peru

We will go to a town called Cruz Pata, and then, we will continue towards the burial site of Karajia. We will enjoy a panoramic view of Luya's main square along the way. Cruz Pata, known as the Crosses Plateau, is the starting point of our journey on foot to get to Karajia; it takes 30 min. approximately. We will see Karajia sarcophagi, which are part of Chachapoyas pre-inca culture; they are made of stone, wood and clay, and have an anthropomorphic shape; they are unique for their enormous size (up to 2,5 meters high) and careful elaboration. Even though time has past, being on top of a cliff with difficult access has allowed these constructions to be well preserved. We will go back to have lunch in the city of Luya.
