Choquequiraw means (cradle of the gold), regarded by many as the original lost city of the Incas, Choquequiraw was the firth fabled set of ruins to be uncovered. People had been aware of its existence from at least the 18th century but it was rarely visited and despite several acclaimed “rediscoveries” over the years, it wasn’t until Hiram Bingham arrived here in 1909 that it really came to people’s attention.
For Bingham it was the discovery that fired his passion to uncover Machu Picchu and esperitu pampa. Set in remote part of wilderness, on a ridge spur around (1750m/5740ft) above the Apurímac River and surrounded by sheer, snowcapped peak, it’s an awe inspiring destination that requires a degree of effort to reach.
