CHOQUEQUIRAO TREK 4 DAYS

Choquequirao Trek 4 Days

Alternative Treks

The name Choquequirao means “Cradle of Gold.” Located above the raging, glacier-fed Apurimac River, surrounded by towering snow-capped peaks and seated on a high ridge, Choquequirao is a remote and rarely visited ¨Lost City of the Incas.¨ The Inca archeological site is considered to be the sister to Machu Picchu. It is less known and less visited but three times larger than Machu Picchu. It was one of the last refuges for those Incas who continued to resist Spanish occupation after the conquest. The site was eventually abandoned and became covered by dense cloud forest vegetation and to this day archeologists continue to discover new sectors of the city. Choquequirao is situated between the jungle and the Peruvian Andes, on a mountain at 3033m/9,951ft. Keeping the crowds away the crowds is  part of this site’s charm, as it is only accessible by footpath. It’s a relatively strenuous 40k/25 mile trek roundtrip, with highs and lows between 1400m/4,593ft. and 3100m/10,170ft. If you are looking for an adventure you’ve found it!
