Choquequirao Trek 4 Days - Classic Route

Choquequirao Trek 4 Days, it is the best alternative trek in Cusco when Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is sold out, Choquequirao is a wonderful city built above 3,000 meters above sea level, is known as the “Sacred Sister” of Machu Picchu because of its structural and architectural similarity. It comprises nine sectors, including the religious centers, an astronomical observatory, the gate group, the political sector with some administrative buildings and rooms, a Main Square with a group of royal residences, some up to two levels, food storages, beautiful water fountains that supplied the liquid element to the whole urban sector.

Choquequirao is bordered by snowy summits that make the place more impressive, so delicate and at the same time so strong inspiration, built to worship their gods, to approach the top, to understand the unknown and the eternal in a sacred space. The condors, superior spirits, watch it from the air, revolting, caring as if they were the eternal guardians of the sacred, a task they surely received from their younger brothers the Incas.

It is a challenging hike of 4 days, but we can promise you that it is worth every drop of sweat and tears. If you have more time, you may like to choose our 5 Day Choquequirao Trek with a finish in different point.

FAQ

Can i be picked up from the Sacred Valley?
Yes, let us know in advance to organize your pick up time (there is an extra cost for it).

Is there a cable car in Choquequirao?
The project to make a cable car that connected the town of Cachora to Marampata was not completed due to the frequent presence of landslides and this plan was gradually lost.

What is Choquequirao?
Choquequirao is named after Quechua Chuqi K’iraw, the cradle of gold. Located just over 3,000 meters high, they are Inca terraces and buildings, very similar to the citadel of Machu Picchu, in terms of its architecture. Some even call it the “Sacred Sister of Machu Picchu” or “Second Machu Picchu.” The site is not as large as Machu Picchu, but it is much less crowded by travelers, since it can only be accessed on foot, with a tour operator, it is the longest and most complete road in Peru.

An incredible experience.
Breathtaking
This huge Inca city is much more hidden than Macchu Picchu.
You can only reach it after an extreme trail, about 30 km.

The most difficult and most rewarding hike I have ever done. The ruins were amazing and with the exception of a couple people spied in the distance when we first arrived, our small group explored the entire site alone. (Visited 2008)
