Tumshukaiko - Ruin Caraz - Peru

Approximately two kilometers (1.24 mi) north of Caraz are the Chavín ruins of Tumshukaiko. There is no fee or sign, and the ruins are only partially excavated. It takes the shape of a pyramid with seven tiers (very little is visible). There is also an underground tunnel that leads to a stone chair; be sure to take a flashlight. To get to Tumshukaiko, take a taxi from Caraz for approximately $2.
