Classic Choquequirao Trek 5 Days

Trip introduction

Choquequirao is known as the sister of Machu Picchu for being a city built in the Inca period after Machu Picchu, the name means "Cradle of Gold" and it is located at the top of the Apurimac canyon, surrounded by imposing snow-capped peaks, Choquequirao is a very remote and rarely visited Inca city since to get to this place it is necessary to carry out the original walk of this region since there is no other means of transport to this day.

Despite being less visited, it is important to mention that it is estimated to be 3 times larger than Machu Picchu, but many of its buildings are still tangled in the middle of the vegetation of the place.

Choquequirao was one of the last refuges of those Incas who continued to resist after the arrival of the Spanish, but it was finally abandoned and over the years it was covered by all the vegetation. Being quite a large place and presenting different enclosures, many of which are far apart, our 5-day trek will give you the option of visiting a full day to fully explore this incredible archaeological site.
