Trekking Choquequirau 5 days 4 Nights

From snowcapped mountains and the Apurimac River to the hidden city of Choquequirao.Enjoy breathtaking views of the Apurimac River and the surrounding landscape as we ascend to the archeological siteof Choquequirao. We start our trek in Huanipaca, making this an attractive itinerary that avoids the cumbersome return over the same trail when one starts in Cachora.
This lost city fascinated 19th-century explorers, and Hiram Bingham visited it two years before he discovered Machupicchu. Difficult to reach, the ruins are rarely visited by travelers. In recent years, the ruins have been partially cleared by Peruvian archaeologists, but it is estimated that only 30% has been excavated so far.
