4.8/5 based on 220 reviews on the web
Visit the Incan site of Choquequirao, a terraced structure similar in architecture to the famed Machu Picchu. Hike through peaceful valleys filled with large agave plants and interesting wildlife, learn about the Incan culture and history, and observe the artworks left over by a long-gone civilization. The Incan settlement can only be reached by a 2-4 day trek from Cusco, but you can choose to hike here on your own or on an organized tour with a guide, mules, and a chef. Before you head to Cusco, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Cusco tour planner, to make sure you see all that Cusco has to offer, including Choquequirao.

  • Visit which I had to this archaeological site, which was hidden for centuries among the vegetation. You are tired to get, but worth the effort.

  • A unforgettable trip for real lovers of trekking magical sites little travel and high demand must hire a good guide to explain everything along the way and have the food and tents list can also go by yourself but I suggest to hire mules and a guide in the first two days you will find some houses where they sell water at a high price but worth buying Choquequirao for another side road to Yanama is more inospito and found few people but amazing condors and archaeological sites

  • To get you hard walk at least 34 km slopes (not simple) but arriving and itself during the walk in addition to meet people from all the countries of the world, enjoy beautiful scenery. Everyone who lives in the villages, attentive and friendly. You can buy chicha of jora or cane or the mix of both to get thirst. The price is more convenient than buying water. It is worthwhile even in my case, I'll be back ;)
