Take an adventure through the best flora and fauna of Peru and incredible wildlife to the magnificent Inca site of Choquequirao, guarded by the amazing condor, where the gods of the Incas once ruled. Choquequirao is one of the most important Inca sites in Peru and has more than just ruins to offer.
The Bus will pick us up at the hotel at 6am and will transport us to the disctrict of San Jose De Cachora (3 hours) where we will begin the walk. This will be the first section of ascending until we reach the Chikiska zone. After lunch we will descend until our first campsite at the shores of the Apurimac River known as the Rosalinas beach. On this day we will walk for between 5 and 6 hours according to the speed of the group.
Again veru early and after breakfast, we will begin a physical day of hiking which will also be very rewarding. The path takes us to the top of the mountain to Marampata (3000m.s.n.m.) where we will have lunch and regain energy which will allow us to reach the summit of Choquequirao (3650 m.s.n.m). Here we will rest for the night hopefully witnessing a beautiful sunset from our comfortable tents. This day contains 10kms of walking.
We will begin the day at 5am where, after breakfast, we will visit the archaelogical complex of Choquequirao, the most important and furthest point of this excursión. After the visit and we have had time to explore, we will come back to Cusco via the same route. Along the route we will hike up to Chiquisca where we will camp overnight for our last camp spot. This day will contain about 5 hours of hiking.
The days activities start at 7am for the final leg of the trip. There will be a final viewpoint that we hike up to called Wayna Qalli. From here we will be able to appreciate the Apurimac River Canyon rated by many as being the most spectacular in South America. Completing the journey, we arrive at the town of San Jose de Cachora where our transport will bring us back to Cusco. We will arrive back at around 5pm. The days walking will take about 3 hours.
