Choquequirao Trek takes you off the beaten path, far from the crowded places, this trip doesn’t take you to Machu Picchu. Instead, you’ll hike to another lost Inca Citadel. This spectacular archaeological site was hidden in the mountain for centuries and was recently uncovered. During the Choquequirao Trek, you may see less than a dozen travelers, making this place a truly unique and quite retreat.
After being collected from your hotel in Cusco at 4:30 am, drive for 4 hours towards Capuliyoc (2911 m / 9550 ft), the beginning of the Choquequirao trek. The first day is 6 hours, mostly downhill into the Aprumimac Canyon. We camp at Playa Rosalina (1478 m / 4849 ft).
