5 Day Trek to Choquequirao plus Machu Picchu

Choquequirao is exceptionally incredible as Machu Picchu, this old Inca city was a station and is shockingly safeguarded; it is less known than Machu Picchu; it isn’t totally investigated, it is virgin, and it is free of substantial groups. It is come to by a less known Inca street 60 km (38 miles) in length. Choquequirao is known as the sister of Machu Picchu.

It is a huge archeological complex with structures and porches, all things considered, some portion of the city is still during the time spent cleaning and reclamation, since it is covered by vegetation gathered over hundreds of years, notwithstanding, this is a piece of its appeal since it transforms the experience into a legitimate investigation.

Departure & Return Location:

Hotel Cusco.

Departure Time:

Pick up from your hotel (4:00am – 4:30am).

Choquequirao to Machu Picchu – 5 Days highlights:

  • Trek to the hidden incan site that not many people go.
  • Like Machu Picchu, Choquequirao has structures that mark solar events such as solstices and equinoxes.
  • You will be practically alone with an archeological site very spectacular like Machu Picchu.
  • The few tourists in the world who visited Choquequirao agree that it was worth it.
  • Learn a lot about the Inca culture.
  • Discover the second lost city of the Incas.
  • The Choquequirao ruins receive less than a dozen visitors a day.
  • Chance to see local flora and flora including the Andean condor.

Itinerary

Day 1: Cusco – Capuliyoc – Playa Rosalinas.

We will come and pick you up right on time from your resort and drive for around 4 hours in our private transport to Capuliyoc (2,915 meters/9,564 feet). There are breathtaking perspectives of towns, valleys, and snow-topped mountains along the route.

Once at Capuliyoc, your tour guide will present to you our group for this trek, including a cook, a horseman, and the horses for this trek and pack our stuff on the horses.

From Capuliyoc, we begin our trek with a downhill for three hours to Chiquisca (1,900m/6,270ft), where our chef will be waiting for us with a fresh lunch, with stunning views of the snowcapped mountains.
And after, we have one more hour to walk down by a crisscross trail to Playa Rosalinas where we spend the night.

Day 2: Playa Rosalina – Maranpata – Choquequirao Park Camp.

Early in the first part of the day, we’ll wake you up with a pleasant coca tea, and nutritious breakfast will make us prepared for the intense day; directly after having our morning meal, we’ll hike up for around 5 hours on a bend trail to get the village of Maranpata, a place where we’ll have our lunch.

Upon our arrival in this lunch spot, we’ll have the primary perspectives of Choquequirao differently. Toward the evening, after having lunch, we’ll keep walking up for two additional hours to get the second campground Choquequirao 2,950 m/9,676 ft, situated into the recreation center. We will have happy hour (tea time) and after dinner.
All meals included.

Day 3: Choquequirao – Playa Rosalinas.

Early in the morning, we can see the sunrise over the ruins and throw a fantastic mild over the site.
After breakfast, we will go to the fantastic ruins of Choquequirao with its mystical atmosphere, its brilliant surroundings, and the unique llama-walls discovered in 2006; with some luck, we can also spot the majestic condor.

From Choquequirao the route will retake us to Playa Rosalinas, the place we will overstay the night, first we have to hike from Choquequirao to Maranpata, where we will rest for a bit, earlier than we continue our hike to Playa Rosalinas, the place we will revel in a good lunch in natural surroundings.

From Maranpata, we will hike to Playa Rosalinas to enjoy a nice dinner and settle for the night.

Day 4: Playa Rosalinas – Capuliyoc – Ollantaytambo – Aguas Calientes.

After a delicious breakfast, we will climb a moderate hill towards the Capuliyoc pass early in the morning, around 5 hours. Once there, we can enjoy the spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and the Apurimac canyon.

In Capuliyoc, we will have lunch and say goodbye to our horseman and Cook, finally, we will take our transport back to Ollantaytambo, where we will take our train to Aguas Calientes, where we will spend the night.

Day 5: Aguas Calientes – Cusco.

To best appreciated Machu Picchu, we’ll wake up early in the morning so we can get to the citadel in good time. You’ll have time for breakfast first, and then your guide will pick you up from the hotel at around 5:40 a.m. We’ll then walk to the bus departure point for the short but zigzagging ascent up the road to Machu Picchu.
We’ll then pass through the gates into the Machu Picchu archaeological site. Here you’ll begin your guided walking tour with an experienced and highly knowledgeable guide.

Our tour of Machu Picchu will last about two hours and will take you to all the most famous and most spectacular parts of the extensive archaeological complex. These include the House of the Guardian, Intihuatana, Temple of the Sun, Sacred Plaza, and other vital locations. And as we walk around, we’ll have spectacular views across the agricultural terraces of Machu Picchu and across to the surrounding mountains and plunging gorges. After the guided tour, you’ll have time to explore Machu Picchu as you please, perhaps walking to some less visited parts such as the Inca Bridge.

Once we’ve finished our tour of Machu Picchu, we’ll take the bus back down to Aguas Calientes, where you can relax and have lunch (not included) before we board the train back to Ollantaytambo and Cusco. Upon arrival at the station, we’ll be waiting to take you back to your hotel in Cusco, where you can think back to your incredible tour of one of the world’s most famous and most impressive attractions.
