Choquequirau
 
 
6 days and 5 nights Trek to Choquequirao

 

Situated within the Salkantay Mountain Range, the ancient Inca city of Choquequirao rests high above the Apurimac River. It bears a striking similarity in structure and architecture to Machu Picchu and is referred to as its 'sister city'. Choquequirao receives far fewer tourists but the ruin is no less impressive and is a good alternative to the overcrowded Machu Picchu and Inca Trail. Unlike Machu Picchu, Choquequirao is not accessible by train or bus. The only way to visit the site is by going on a spectacular 2-day hike from Cachora, a small community 4 hours from Cusco.
 
 

Program itinerary.

Day 1: CUSCO TO CACHORA :
We pick you up from your hotel in private transportation and drive to the town of Cachora (2909 msnm/ 9544 ft). The 4-hour drive takes the Pan-American Highway through the Andes, with a spectacular view of snow-capped mountains. In Cachora, we arrive at Los Tres Balcones Hostal to spend the night and prepare for the trek the next day. Cachora is an authentic, colorful town to explore, with beautiful views of the mountain peak "Padreyuc."

Day 2: CUSCO - CACHORA - CHIKISKA.
We wake up at 7:00AM to enjoy a delicious breakfast at Los Tres Balcones Hostal. At 8:00AM we drive 30 minutes to Capuliyoc Lookout (2,941masl / 9649 ft) where we meet our horses and porters and begin our trek.
We take a trail heading north, following the Cachora Valley with a spectacular view of the "Nevado Padreyoq." We will also enjoy a spectacular view of the Apurimac River Canyon and the archaeological complex of Choquequirao in the distance. Our path continues downhill for about 5 hours, until we arrive at lunch and the campsite at Chikisca (1,863masl). We can expect a warm night in the valley.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3: CHIKISKA - SANTA ROSA - MARAMPATA.
We leave early (5AM) and continue downhill for about one hour to reach the Apurimac River, where we cross the bridge into the Cusco region. We begin our walk uphill, arriving in 2 hours at Santa Rosa, where we can stop for a rest. Here we find a family house where we can freshen up and enjoy sugar cane "chicha," known as Cambray. We can also buy mineral water, soft drinks and rehydrating drinks.
We continue uphill for approximately 2 hours until arriving at Marampata (2,913 masl). We have lunch and enjoy the rest of the afternoon visiting the local family's land and sharing in their daily activities. Overnight is at the Marampata campsite. Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4: MARAMPATA - CHOQUEQUIRAO
After breakfast, we start early to walk 2 hours to the principal archaeological complex, where we visit and explore the Usnu, Priests House, Llamayoq, Anan and Urin Sectors, and Administrative Sector. The excursion around the citadel takes several hours. Our lunch will be a packed lunch-box, and upon our return we will have a snack before dinner, to replenish our energy. End of the day and camping is at the Choquequirao campsite.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Day 5: CHOQUEQUIRAO - CHIKISCA
After breakfast, we pack up our equipment and begin our return to Marampata where we stop to have lunch. We then continue to Chikisca, where we spent our first night. We return by the same path that we took on the way there. The gradient of the path is Peruvian flat at the beginning, but then descends to the Apurimac River, where we will take a break. The rest of the path is uphill for about 2 hours. Dinner and end of the day is at Chikisca.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Day 6: CHIKISCA - CAPULIYOC - CUSCO
We begin the day as early as possible to avoid the midday sun, which is exhausting. The first part of the path is uphill for about 5 hours. The last part of the trek is challenging. We arrive at the Capuliyoc Lookout, which is where we began our journey. Total walking time is approximately 5 hours. We have lunch and begin our return trip to the city of Cusco.
