CHOQUEQUIRAO TREK 4 Days

PRICE FROM
USD $290

The Choquequirao Route is magnificent and infrequently visited by tourists. In other words, it is poorly known, rarely visited, and infrequently investigated. Choquequirao is thought to be the famous final hamlet occupied by the Incas when the Spanish invaded Peru. You’ll be startled by the sheer size of the site, which is substantially larger than Machu Picchu.It was one of the final refuges for Incas who resisted Spanish rule following the conquest.  The site was subsequently abandoned and overgrown with deep cloud forest flora, and archaeologists are still discovering new areas of the city today.

During this incredible adventure, you’ll travel ancient paths used by the Incas hundreds of years ago, climb high Andean peaks, marvel at the majestic beauty of glaciers, descend through deep canyons where massive condors fly, and cross through completely different ecosystems in this fantastically biodiverse country.

When we arrive in Capuliyoc, you’ll eat an excellent breakfast and meet the cook and horseman who will form your hiking crew. They will guarantee that your items reach securely at each camp and that you are adequately fed.

Once we begin trekking, you will go through the stunning “Apurimac” sceneries across a vast valley on a 3-hour downhill hike. Before we get at “Chiquisca,” you will see two more massive mountains, “Padreyoc” and “Qoriwayrachina”.

When you’re filled and reenergized, we’ll continue for another hour and fifteen minutes to the valley’s bottom. The gushing Apurimac River, also known as “Speaking God” in Quechua, awaits you here. The creek features class V rapids, making it ideal for canoeing and rafting.

Your guide will lead you around the site, telling you about the history and other fascinating anecdotes.

Choquequirao is substantially larger than Machu Picchu, but experts think that just 40% of it has been explored, so there will certainly be much more to study in the future. You will see plazas, temples, and stunning terraces. All of this will leave you wondering how the ancient civilization accomplished such a feat on top of the mountains.

Don’t miss some of the complex’s most essential features, such as the white stone llamas designed to guard the crucial mountain that overlooks the area known as Apu Qoriwayrachina. Choquequirao remains a mystery in many respects, and you may expect to discover more in the coming years. At midday, you will pause at this wonderful location to eat lunch.
