The name Choquequirao means “Cradle of Gold.” Located above the raging, glacier-fed Apurimac River, surrounded by towering snow-capped peaks and seated on a high ridge, Choquequirao is a remote and rarely visited ¨Lost City of the Incas.¨  The Inca archaeological site is considered to be the sister to Machu Picchu. It is less known and less visited but three times larger than Machu Picchu.  It was one of the last refuges for those Incas who continued to resist Spanish occupation after the conquest.  The site was eventually abandoned and became covered by dense cloud forest vegetation and to this day archeologists continue to discover new sectors of the city. With the 5 day trek you will have one full day to thoroughly explore this amazing archeological site!
On this adventurous trek we will walk on the extensive system of Inca trails, hike through high Andean landscapes with majestic glaciers, descend into deep canyons where the condors fly and pass through biologically diverse cloud forest ecosystems. You will also see native animals such as Andean Condors, birds, native flora and fauna, orchids and so much more!
