Reminded me of the Nerja cave in Spain. Very beautiful. Difficult to walk because of all the mud and darkness

If you've seen caves with various formations, this won't do too much for you in my opinion, however, there's more to this adventure. First, there are some bones and paintings and sculptures that lend itself to Chachapoyan history. There's plenty of water/moisture involved. It's dark,...More

Came here in on a tour to the caves and Sarcofagos from Chachapoyas. This double tour had about 7 hours driving. The Caverna is interesting as it was once a cemetary - so lots of skulls and bones - the walk from the vehicle is...More

Walking in it is an adventure as the mud is sticky and the floor is unpredictable, just make sure you rent wellies. It is very dark in the cave and the guide only had a couple of torches for the group so best to take...More
