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.
  • You will savor the Peruvian cuisine which will be prepared by our master chef.

We recommend you be in Cusco at least 2 days before your trek to be acclimatized to Cusco’s altitude so that you won’t have a problem during the tour.

We will be picking you up from your hotel in Cusco between 0330 and 0400 AM. Then in our private transport, we will be driving you to Capuliyoc, the starting point of the trek. It is four hours away from Cusco. Here we will be meeting our crew (muleteers and cook). So while our team will be organizing your belongings, you can have your breakfast at one of the local restaurants. 

After your breakfast, our trek expert will be sharing some tips and will give you a safety briefing. Then we will begin the trek with a gradual uphill climb to the Capuliyoc viewpoint. From here, you will get stunning views of the snow-capped peak of Padreyoc mountain.

We will then hike down the hill for two and a half hours to Chikiska. It is an Oasis. On our way, we will be crossing many plantations. After a short break, we will be continuing for thirty minutes to Playa Rosalinas. Here we will be serving you lunch. We will be serving you an authentic Peruvian meal.

Your tour guide will wake you up very early to take advantage of the cooler hours of the morning and hike uphill for 4 hours to the Capuliyoc viewpoint. In the morning, the view of the snowy Padreyoc with the sunrise over its highest point is amazing. Once you arrive in Capuliyoc, your porter staff will be waiting for you with a cold fruit juice and a delicious buffet lunch. Afterward, you will board our private van for 2 hours to the beautiful and crystalline thermo-medicinal waters of Conoc to relax those muscles that were demanded to the maximum in the Choquequirao trek.

Then you will board the van again for 2 hours to the town of Ollantaytambo, where you will have dinner at a local restaurant. At 7 p.m. you will board the Peru Rail Expedition tourist train for 1 hour and 45 minutes to Aguas Calientes, the closest town to the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu. Upon arrival, your guide will leave you at your hotel and will also tell you the time you will go up the next day to visit and explore Machu Picchu.

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.
