We drove with our rental car to San Bartolo, parked on the main square, bought our tickets and walked to the site on a very nicely “paved” path. It’s an easy 40 minutes walk to the cliffs and tombs.
There is a view point and you can get quite close to the tombs although you cannot go right up to them. It’s definitely worth it.
The drive bit from Yerbabuana to San Bartolo is about 18km of unpaved road in average condition, so be prepared for a jumpy ride.

This site is really interesting because it gives you an insight into the funeral practices of the Chacapoyas and the influence of the Incas. I recommend going there with Turismo Explorer from Chachapoyas. Ask for the guide Roger because he is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of ancient Peruvian civilizations and can answer just about any question about ancient Peru. The walk to the mausoleums could be a little bit strenuous for the over 60s. You can hire a horse in the town of San Bartolo. My mother, who is over 60, paid 30 soles to a person from the village for the return horse trip to the Mausoleums. I walked there and back easily.
Se puedes acercarse bastante a los Mausoleos. Este sitio es realmente interesante porque permite conocer las prácticas funerarias de los Chacapoyas y la influencia de los incas. Recomiendo ir con Turismo Exporer desde Chachapoyas. Pregunten por el guía Roger porque es extremadamente informado acerca de todos los aspectos de las antiguas civilizaciones peruanas. La caminata a los Mausoleos podría ser un poco exigente para los mayores de 60 años. Se puede alquilar un caballo en el pueblo de San Bartolo. 30 soles ida y vuelta y te esperan cerca a los Mausoleos.

Nice and interesting mausoleums from Chachapoyas civilization. It's a couple of kilometers from the main square of the village. But the trip to the village is quite long, the last 9 km are just hard sand track. The advantage is there are not many visitors. Plse take a guide to get the right info on the site.

Revash is an interesting spot which shows some old mausoleos and gives an overview how in former times the (important) dead people were treated. The landscape around the tombs is impressive. If you‘re coming from Chachapoyas it‘s a approx. 2 hour drive by car. If it‘s really worth needs to be decided by everyone itself.

The main problem traveling on your own at chachapoya was transportation. Visited Revash on my own and probably used all my luck to get a transportation to the site!

Revash is really far away from the city of chachapoya (pleaserefer to map). I took a combi (sol 8) to yerbabuena (around 2 hours), then with many luck I met two veey kind gentlemen who were going to santo Tomás, they drove me to up to Revash! Super kind of them because it was so hard to find a car that passed yerbabuena.

Arrived at Revash you could buy your entry ticket for 15 sol, and the path started off at the right side of the Plaza. The path was very well paved with stone and it was super easy to walk. The scenery along the way was one of the thing that I loved most, super sceneric and beautiful.

You could see the mausoleos Revash from a pagoda, you could also get near to it but just could not enter into the site. I found the structure, painting, symbol and colors amusing. There is no mineral so the color might be from a local plant.

Note:
*there is no restaurant along the path but some at the Plaza.
*if I didn't meet the 2 gentlemen, another way to go is to get a combi or car that go to santo Tomás, and dropped off at the midway. Start walking all the way up and it might take you more than 2.5 hours.
*on the way from yerbabuena to Revash, there are also some small mausoleos at the cliff, you could try to find them.
* a day tour usually includes the masauleos Revash and the museum at leymebamba. Considering the very very few transportation between the 2 places, it is worth to take a tour to save time.

The Mausoleo Revash is located in a nice little town, really nice and friendly. You can walk all the way up or take a horse ride. It offers spectacular views of the mountains.

The mausoleums are a long up and down walk from the village, and the last kilometer is a harder hike than the first. You're below them so really you get better pictures from the mirador with a telephoto than from below on the trail. Nice exposures on the local geology from the mirador as well.

After a long two-hour ride from Chachapoyas, we got to the Revash nice mausoleums of Chachapoyas ancestor's tombs. We had to ride horses to the site, because of knee problems. You can only see the mausoleums from far, but it was worthwhile.

If you like culture, go there ! The museum is really interesting and you can see the mummies in a really good state of conservation. The only thing is that nothing is written in English so make sure you have an english speaking guide who can explain you what’s going on there.
And finally, the mausoleum are amazing ! Colorful and in a good state of conservation. Never saw such thing before. A wonderful discover of the Chachapoyas civilization.
