Along the road we will pass the two small villages Capuliyoc (2800 m) and Cocamasana, in one of these places we will enjoy our lunch. In Chiquisqa we will settle our camp, eat dinner together and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the forest of Chiquisqa and all its different types of fruits. A good sleep is important so we can be ready for the hike to the imporatant Inca site of Choquequirao the next day.

Thereafter the hike takes us uphill for two hours to Santa Rosa Baja, where we will have a little break to collect some energy before we will ascend the mountain for two more hours to Marampata, where we can en joy the view of the beautiful landscapes of the valley.

At Choquequirao we will enjoy our lunch, set up our camp and eat dinner together. In the night we can experience the mystical atmosphere of Choquequirao where the gods of the Incas once ruled and their spirits still floats around.
Early in the morning we can see the sun rise over the ruins and throw a wonderful light over the site. After the breakfast we will visit the magnificent ruins of Choquequirao with its mystical atmosphere, its incredible surroundings and the unique llama-walls which were recently discovered in 2006. With some luck we can also spot the amazing condor. From Choquequirao the route will take us back to Cocamasana, where we will overstay the night.
