4D-3N – Hiking in the Sacred Valley of the Incas – Visit of the Choquequirao, mythical Inca city – Hiking trail not much frequented by tourists.
Choquequirao Trek is a high altitude trek. It takes you to the sister city of Machu Picchu, Choquequirao. The name in Quechua means Cradle of Gold. It is an archaeological site high up in the Quriwayrachina mountain range at 3033 metres above sea level.
Pachacuti, the renowned Incan emperor who built Machu Picchu, built Choquequirao in the same era. The archeological site was expanded during the rule of Tupac Yupanqui, Pachacuti’s son.
Trek to Choquequirao is especially popular among travellers who want to experience an off the beaten track experience in a complete solitude. As the trek involves a lot of uphill and downhill hike, it attracts just a handful of trekkers.
Trek to Choquequirao is quite picturesque. It takes you through Apurimac canyon along the course of Apurimac river.
To boost tourism, local authorities are planning on installing a cable car . This will see a rapid boom in tourism as people will be able to visit the site on a full day tour instead of the four day trek.
This is a high altitude experience. We highly recommend you to spend atleast three days in Cusco before the trek to get acclimate and avoid altitude sickness
