Tour Details

The four days Choquequirao Trek from Cusco is an unmissable experience. Although not as popular as Machu Picchu, Choquequirao is considered as a sacred sister of Machu Picchu

Both have more or less the same style of architecture as both were built in the same era by Pachacutec. Due to its remote location, the Spanish conquistadors could not find it and it was left abandoned. 

The word Choquequirao in Quechua means cradle of gold. It offers the best off the beaten track experience. Most part of this high altitude trek will take you through the Apurimac Canyon. Accompanied by our local guide you will learn a lot about the flora and fauna that you will be encountering on your way. 

During the rule of Pachacuti, many sites were built and Choquequirao was one among them. When his son Tupac Yupanqui took over the throne, he expanded it. Only a third of the whole complex is now excavated.
