I don't really know much about Inza, it's not in any travel guides and apparently rarely ever sees any foreign tourists visiting. I had only heard about it through a girl I met who lived in Colombia and told me it had some tombs like in Tierradentro, but that were free to visit.
The town of Inza is small and unremarkable, though when I went to a restaurant and at my hotel, the people were extremely friendly and hospitable.
Getting to the pyramid and tombs is no easy task, nothing is marked or signposted. Ask for direction and hope for a little luck, and you might find it. When I visited it, my luck came in the form of some little kids.
I had asked around town and at the hotel how to get there, feeling confident I took off walking in the direction of the pyramid and tombs. While walking along the gravel road, some little kids who were walking home from school walked up and started talking to me. I told them about the pyramid and they told me they would take me there, as they lived near to it.
Walking along the gravel road, you must turn right up a dirt path going up the side of a big hill (small mountain?). You pass several houses along the way, including one building that looked like a school, but abandoned. Anyways, long story short, the pyramid and tombs are actually in the backyard of a private residence, they ask that you pay a little something for the electricity and maintenance of the tombs. The tombs are lit up electrically from a light switch in the house. If the boys are around (which they were when I was there) they will be all excited to show you the tombs (and they will also likely be really hyper and hopped up on sugar cane, the dad of the house farms the stuff, he has a feild next door).
As it is a small dirt path leading there, there is no possibility of getting there by car or any other way but walking.
The tombs are of a similar but different type of those in Tierradentro. Instead of being dug from the top, with stairs... more travel advice
