The trip of a lifetime! My best friend and I chose this tour to celebrate our 30th Birthdays - it was Amazing!!! We had a really nice time visiting Cusco, Machu Picchu and going to the Rainbow Mountain. The tour guides were really nice and we told us a lot about everything. We visited in November and for Machu Picchu this was amazing - it was misty in the morning and sunny by mid-morning, so we got to see it with all weather types. Highly recommend going at 6am and spending most of the day there - circuit 2 and 4 were great! We even hiked up one of the mountains. Carlos, Judy, and Wilson were great and really educated us about each site.

Great way to experience Peru The tour was a great way to experience Cusco, the sacred valley, Machu Picchu and the Vinicunca mountain. We only had 4 full days, and it was the right amount of time. I was there with my best friend celebrating our 30th, so we will always cherish this moment. The tour guides (Carlos, Judy, and Wilson) were very friendly and knowledgeable. They helped us get immersed to the history of the Incas, and made us feel comfortable throughout the trip. The accommodation provided as part of the package was very adequate, and the overall experience was great.
Encantos en Cusco Estamos muy contentos con los servicios que hemos recibido. Desde el recojo en el aeropuerto, fueron puntuales con un cartel con nuestro nombre. La habitacion que pedimos fue hermosa en el hotel Mayu con vista a la calle 7 borreguitos, Royer nos atendio muy bien 10/10. La agencia se comunicaba con nosotros todos los dias, para saber como nos hiba en el tour o si es que necesitamos ayuda. Realmente muy serviciales. En aguas Calientes Daniel, estuvo atento con nosostros . El tour en Machu Picchu fue realmente magico. Tenemos que agradecer mucho a Alicia por el tour bien planificado y a Jose Angel por todas las atenciones todos los dias, nunca nos dejo solos.
Servicio de calidad Buena atención, personalizada, se adecuan a las necesidades, escuchan sugerencias y son muy amables, muchas gracias!

Frequently Asked Questions about Karajia and Quiocta Cave

The best time to take the Karajia and Quiocta Cave Tour in Chachapoyas is during the dry season in the Chachapoyas region, which generally extends from May to September. During these months, the weather is more stable, with fewer rains and more suitable conditions for outdoor activities and exploring the caves and archaeological sites.

The climate in the Karajia and Quiocta Cave region, located in Chachapoyas, Peru, is typically a mountain tropical climate. Here are some characteristics of the climate in this area:

  • Temperatures: Temperatures tend to be moderate during the day and can vary with the season. During the day, temperatures can range between 15°C and 25°C on average, creating a pleasant environment for exploring the area.
  • Precipitation: The Chachapoyas region experiences a rainy season and a dry season. The rainy season typically occurs from December to March, while the dry season lasts from April to November. The amount of rainfall can vary significantly during the rainy season, affecting accessibility to certain areas.
  • Humidity: Due to its location in the cloud forest of northern Peru, relative humidity is usually high, especially during the rainy season. This contributes to lush vegetation and the formation of stalactites and stalagmites in Quiocta Cave.
  • Altitude Variations: The Chachapoyas region has a mountainous topography, so altitude can vary considerably. Both Karajia and Quiocta Cave are located at moderate altitudes, contributing to the aforementioned climate conditions.

You should not experience severe altitude sickness on your trip to Karajia and Quiocta Cave, as these areas are not at extremely high altitudes. Both places are situated at moderate altitudes in the Chachapoyas region of Peru.

Here are some recommendations on what to do if you experience altitude sickness:

  • Rest: If you experience altitude sickness symptoms such as a headache, dizziness, or nausea, stop and rest. Fatigue can worsen the symptoms, so it’s essential to allow your body to acclimatize gradually.
  • Hydration: Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Dehydration can worsen altitude sickness symptoms.
  • Avoid Alcohol and Caffeine: These substances can dehydrate you and exacerbate altitude sickness symptoms. Avoid their consumption while at high altitudes.
  • Descend: If symptoms are severe or do not improve with rest and hydration, consider descending to a lower altitude. Descending is the most effective way to treat altitude sickness.
  • Medications: In some cases, medications like acetazolamide can help prevent or relieve altitude sickness symptoms. Consult a doctor before taking any medication and follow their recommendations.
  • Acclimatization: If you plan to visit high-altitude regions, try to ascend gradually rather than abruptly. Schedule your travel itinerary so that you can give your body time to acclimate to the altitude.
  • Consult a Doctor: If you experience severe or persistent altitude sickness symptoms, seek medical attention. A healthcare professional can provide guidance and appropriate treatment.

It is possible to travel to Karajia and Quiocta Cave with children, but it is essential to consider the age of the children, bring appropriate supplies, ensure supervision and safety, assess their activity level, and consider a medical consultation before the trip. Prior planning and attention to children’s safety are priorities.
