Choquequirao is the second most important archeological site in Cusco region. It has a connection with the last Inca city of Vilcabamba and with Machu Picchu. It is in the middle of different Inca roads that traversed all of the Inca empire. After quite a tough hike we will see fascinating and remote Choquequirao (“cradle of gold” in Quechua) – awesome in design and also location, perched high on a spur above the Apurimac canyon – the third deepest canyon in Peru. This is the great place to see condors inhabiting the area. From here we continue our trek into even more remote territory where we can see villagers who live in the area of Yanama, as well as glaciers, valleys and mines of silver. The highest point of the trek is Yanama pass at 4800 msnm/15900 feet after which we descent to the subtropical area. We walk along coffee and banana plantations before arriving at Aguas Calientes. The last day is devoted to exploring the Lost City of Incas – Machu Picchu. You must join us on this unforgettable and challenging adventure.
