Departure from Chachapoyas and / or Achamaqui. We will start our trip to San Geronimo (2145 m.a.s.l.) in Utcubamba valley, on the road between Pedro Ruiz and Achamaqui, we have to get to the detour and pass San Geronimo bridge to drive 12 km. to the town. From the village, we will take the road towards the area known as Tigre to find the sarcophagi. Along the way, we will be able to watch a variety of fauna and flora. The Quina tree stands out as it was a key element to allied troops in the fight against malaria on the Pacific front during World War II. These sarcophagi are still being investigated; they were discovered in San Geronimo region by members of the community in 2013; this discovery was led by Mr. Angel Gupioc (75) President of the San Geronimo Community Association.
