The Choquequirao Trek 4 days in Peru could be a difficult hike but well worth a visit. Explore the Choquequirao trekking route and experience the refuge of the last incas. This fascinating adventure also lets you enjoy deep canyons, remote Inca sites with incredible Andean sceneries.
The 4-day Choquequirao Trek is the newest off the beaten path destination in Peru. This Trek to Choquequirao is considered the most difficult adventure tour in Peru. But our all-inclusive service makes easier your experience to reach the least explored Inca site. Trekkers are dropped off at the trail-head of Capuliyoq which offer amazing vistas as adventurous descend into the Apurimac Canyon. The next day is all uphill to the second most famous and largest inca site after Machu Picchu.
Choquequirao means “craddle of gold” and was also the last refuge for the Incas for 36 years during the colonial period. The Incan city of Choquequirao was completely abandoned eversince. Choquequirao is an excellent example of a ceremonial center for the Inca elite, dedicated to worshipping the gods of nature. Today, our Choquequirao Trek 4 days can take you there with organized expeditions from Cusco.
The religious center of Choquequirao is comparable to Machu Picchu, considering its complexity, the craftsmanship of its stone walls and stunning views. Choquequirao is also known as “the sacred sister” of the lost city of the incas.
Choquequirao Trek let you visit a real marvel of the Inca Culture in 4 days from Cusco. This spectacular place is located in the Vilcabamba Valley, surrounded by imposing snow mountains and flanked by deep canyons with dense vegetation.
In addition, the Choquequirao Trek 4 days is very challenging because of its steep ascents and descents. But well worth the effort for its panoramic views and ancient Inca ruins. There are also fewer amenities and crowds, which is a prime motivation for many serious hikers who want to enjoy a more unspoiled experience.
If you already visited Machu Picchu, now there is another excuse to visit the incomparable Choquequirao. Similarly, there is another hot destination called Rainbow Mountain, which you can visit on a day hike from Cusco.
