“Not worth seeing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

It's just a cavern without anything interesting in my opinion. Just a bunch of stalactites and lots of water. You need to rent rubber boots to visit the cavern because there's a lot of water and mud.

“If you've been to other caves you won't be impressed.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

If you are going to Karajia, try to combine it with Pueblo de los Muertos instead. The caves are not all that impressive by themselves, but the agencies want to make this a full day tour.

I don't believe I paid 70 soles though!

Agosto is a great guide, but chances are you won't get him for this tour (I think he goes to Kuelap virtually every day).

“Ok to co-visit with Karajia, but not that interesting on its own”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

We had a tour organized by Hostel Revash/Andes Tours for 70 S/person. A little expensive considering the poor interest of the sites, but it was ok, especially with our great guide Agusto, speaking english, french and german. He made the tour great, request him absolutely!
