Choquequirao Trek

Day 1: Cusco – Cachora – Chiquisca

Having picked you up from your hotel in Cusco at 4 am, we'll set off on the road to Cachora, where we'll begin our first trekking route. Along this trail, which will take approximately three hours, we'll reach the Capulliyoq viewpoint: the perfect spot to admire the Apurimac River and the ruins of Choquequirao in the distance.

From the viewpoint, we'll descend via a zigzagging path to Chiquisca. Here, we'll set up camp for the night and enjoy lunch and dinner before relaxing for the evening.

Day 2: Chiquisca – Santa Rosa – Marampata – Choquequirao

After breakfast at the camp in Chiquisca, we'll set off on our second trekking route. The hike will take us approximately eight hours and we'll make two stops along the way: one in Santa Rosa for lunch and another in Marampata to enjoy the views of its beautiful surroundings from its famous panoramic viewpoint.

Our trek will come to an end at the Choquequirao archaeological site, where we'll have dinner and set up camp for the night.

Day 3: Choquequirao

Following breakfast at the campsite, you'll have the whole day free to explore the ruins of Choquequirao at your leisure. Known as the "little sister of Machu Picchu", this archaeological site still preserves the remains of temples, storage buildings and other public spaces that will give us fascinating insight into the history of pre-Columbian Latin America. We'll have lunch and dinner at the campsite.

Day 4: Choquequirao – Pinchiunuyoq – Capuliyoc – Cusco

After breakfast, we'll leave the campsite behind and set off on our final trekking trail. This route will take us to the archaeological site of Pinchiunuyoq, whose ruins are located in the heart of the Apurimac Valley. At the end of our four hour hike, we'll reach Capuliyoc, a viewpoint where we'll have a well-earned break for lunch while taking in the views. After eating, we'll make the return journey to Cusco by bus.
