We booked what turned out to be a 12 hour tour. We left chachapoyas at 8am for an hour drive to the caves for a 45 minute walk into the dark cave. We were provided lights and boots. The cave is peaceful and awe inspiring. We then went to a good lunch. The drive from lunch was an hour up and around a beautiful mountain side. Peru is amazing! The hike to the sarcophagus was about a half an hour down hill. The site is awesome and beautiful. It was $25 a person for lunch and a ride to both spots. Our tour kind was kind and spoke Spanish and enough English to work with. My favorite trip in Peru so far.

I decided to take my vacation in two different places, being Chachapoyas the most exhuberant one. I have enjoyed wonderful tours and unforgettable memories, try this one too! Wow

Sarcofagos itself are very interesting, but the view is limited from about 50-70m, you cannot get more close. If weather is rainy of misty with heavy fog, you will see just a little. Be prepared for a hour little bit steep hike on the way back.

Visited on my own cost and spent most of the time waiting for transportation. Arrived at terminal Terrestre of chachapoya at 7am and waited for 1 hour to get to Luya. There I waited for 1.5 hour to get 3 persons going to cruzpata, the autocar would not leave until it got no enough passengers. Arrived at cruzpata and buy your entry ticket for 5 sol, walked down around 25 minutes and you would arrive at the gate. Pushed the gate it was not locked, and walked all the way to see the first group of sarcofagos which consist of 6 statues. Continue to the end of the path where you could see the second group of sarcofagos at the other side of the cliff. For the last sarcofago is only one and the smallest, of rectangular shape. But it is not difficult to find, just only could be seen at one spot. At the end of the path with bars, there is a little platform where you will find a off track down to an open area. From there, you could try to find the 3rd sacrofago which is exactly at the left side of the 2nd group and near the edge of the mountain, surrounded by vegetation. Please respect the site and don't draw or write on the wall. As it was like a cemetery and religious place to the ancient chachapoya people, you could find bones and skulls!
