How does heading out on an adventure to a place just as incredible as Machu Picchu sounds, but with fewer tourists? Our Classic Choquequirao Trek is just that. Join us on this epic journey to one of the most amazing Inca complexes in existence.

The name Choquequirao means “Cradle of Gold” in the Quechua language. This spectacular archaeological site is located above the furious Apurímac River and is surrounded by towering glacier peaks. Very few tourists visit it because it's not as well-known as Machu Picchu, but it's 3 times bigger! It's said to have been one of the last refuges of the Incas who tried to resist the Spanish invasion. Later, Choquequirao was abandoned, and the dense vegetation of the cloud forest ended up covering it and hiding it from civilization.

  Overview

The Classic Choquequirao Trek is an awesome option for true adventurers, history lovers, and nature enthusiasts. You’ll head off-the-beaten-path and away from other tourists as you venture through the incredible scenery along a rarely traveled trail to a real archaeological gem. Join us as part of a group or as a couple.

Choquequirao trek is an exciting alternative trek to the Inca Trail. The lesser-known ruins of Choquequirao feature similar architecture and layout to the more famous complex of Machu Picchu. The fact that you can only get there on foot, however, means that far fewer people visit this incredible site.

On this adventurous trek, you’ll hike into an ancient world, walk on Incan highways, trek through high Andean landscapes with majestic glaciers, descend into deep canyons where the condors fly, and pass through biologically diverse cloud forest ecosystems. You’ll also see native animals, such as Andean Condors, other smaller local birds, and native flora and fauna, including orchids, and so much more!

This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience that’ll imprint itself in your mind and provide an unforgettable memory. Do you want to escape the crowds and visit a rarely trekked site? The Classic Choquequirao Trek is for you.

Wake up to enjoy a delicious breakfast before heading to the incredible archaeological complex of Choquequirao. We´ll explore every nook and cranny of the uncovered section and learn all about the history. Later, we´ll stop for lunch in the middle of the day. Then, we´ll continue exploring the site with our guide, who will answer any questions you may have about the site. In the evening, we´ll return to camp for dinner and a well-deserved rest.

We´ll start the day with a delicious breakfast that will give you a boost of energy. Then, we´ll take the day to explore every detail of this incredible Inca site located in the mountains and very close to the deepest canyon of the entire South American continent. You can already imagine the incredible landscapes that surround this colossal Inca construction. We´ll visit the most impressive corners of this place and our guide will share with you the fascinating stories of the past and the reason why it was built.

Choquequirao (3,050 m / 10,007 ft) is much larger than Machu Picchu, with plazas, temples, and impressive platforms that will make you constantly ponder the question: How could the Incas build this on top of the mountains? You´ll enjoy a picnic lunch at noon and have time to rest and recover your energy.

Don´t miss the famous white stone llamas that adorn the platforms built on the hillside and are located in the direction of the mountain that protects this sector known as the Apu Qoriwayrachina. According to experts, only an average of 40% of the entire site is visible and, in many ways, Choquequirao remains a mystery. We are sure that in the coming years we will learn even more about this amazing complex.

At the end of the day, we will return to our camp at Marampata (2,900 m / 9,514 ft) and enjoy a delicious dinner. Afterwards, you can go to bed to contemplate the incredible day you have just had and rest.

You’ll bid farewell to Choquequirao this morning as you begin the journey back toward Cusco. We’ll stop at Marampata for some more photos before continuing onto Santa Rosa for lunch.

This afternoon, we’ll keep going to Chiquisca where we’ll camp this evening in the backyard of a local family. It’s a great chance to witness the Andean lifestyle and learn about customs and traditions. Enjoy a tasty dinner before going to bed.

After another delicious breakfast, we’ll start our return from Choquequirao. It’s goodbye for now to this unique site, so make sure you get a last glimpse before you head off. First, we will have another opportunity to take pictures of the great canyon from Marampata; then, we will descend for two hours until we reach Santa Rosa (2,970 m / 6,463 ft), lunch point. On the way, you will have the opportunity to observe the enormous variety of vegetation on this part of the trail.

After lunch, we’ll continue to Playa Rosalinas and dip our feet and freshen up in the cold waters of the Apurimac River in the middle of the canyon. Then, we’ll go up to Chiquisca camp (1,900 m / 6,234 ft), located in the backyard of the home of a local family. Use this time to make new friends and learn about the Andean lifestyle, like their customs and traditions. You’ll be able to closely observe the deep relationship that the Andean communities have with Pachamama or, as you know her, Mother Nature.

After a delicious dinner, you can rest peacefully for the night in our cozy camp and reflect on your journey up to this point.

Day 05

Enjoy your last breakfast of the trip before we set off on the last leg to Capuliyoc. Once you’re there, you’ll say goodbye to your trekking team and then board our vehicle to the intriguing Saywite rock. You’ll then be able to relax in the Conoc hot springs before devouring a delicious lunch.

In the afternoon, you’ll enjoy the drive back to Cusco and witness some incredible scenery out of the window. Use this last opportunity to soak up the landscape. We’ll drop you off at the door of your accommodation around 6:00 p.m. so you can relax and unwind.

Today we will enjoy the last breakfast of our epic adventure while listening to the mighty roar of the river. Afterwards, we´ll leave as early as possible to avoid the sun hindering our hike, as it can make things very difficult at high altitudes. Take a deep breath and focus on the energy of mother nature as you hike for 4 hours to Capuliyoc.

Once there, we´ll say goodbye to the trekking team and board the private transportation that will take us to see the famous Saywite monolith, a colossal rock sculpted with more than 200 geometric and zoomorphic figures. You´ll discover that this place was a center of religious worship for the Inca people, centered on water and of great importance to their culture.

After learning all about the place's history, we’ll continue to the hot springs of Conoc to relax and unwind in the warm waters. Our lunch will be ready after enjoying these refreshing pools, and then we’ll start our drive back to the city of Cusco.

Take advantage of this last opportunity to observe the immense glacial mountains that have embraced you with pure affection during the route and that have allowed you to arrive safely to each destination along the route. Your body will likely be very tired, but the joy and satisfaction that you’ll feel in your soul will be incomparable. We’ll arrive in the city of Cusco at approximately 6:00 p.m. and drop you off at the door of your accommodation for you to finally kick back and relax.

  Before You Go

We want to make your trip to Peru as memorable and as carefree as possible. In this section, you’ll find the answers to all the questions you have about traveling with Salkantay Trekking in one place. Please read the following information carefully – it will help you with any questions about our services.

Have another question that we haven’t answered here? Drop us a line and we will get back to you asap!

How many days do I need to acclimate in Cusco before the Trek?

It’s very important to be well acclimated to the altitude before exerting yourself on a trek. We recommend that you arrive in Cusco at least 2 or 3 days before the trek starts to help you adjust and avoid possible problems with altitude sickness while on the trek.

You might have already been in another area of Peru at a high altitude before arriving in Cusco. In that case, we still recommend you have a whole day in Cusco to rest, recover from your travel, and enjoy the sights and sounds of Cusco before departing for the trek.

Here some suggestions for activities to do in the Cusco vicinity before starting your adventure trek:

Briefing or Informative Meeting

All information meetings and briefings are held in our main office in Cusco (or your hotel) at 5:00 pm, one night before the tour begins. These meetings last approximately 30 to 45 minutes. If you’re unable to attend, you must coordinate another time by email, by phone or at the Salkantay Trekking office.

Trek Balance Payment (in Cusco)

The trek has to be paid for in full at most 7.30 pm one day before your departure (generally after the briefing).

It would be much appreciated if you pay the trek balance in cash US dollars or local currency at our office in Cusco. You can withdraw some money from several ATMs along Avenida Sol (either in US dollars or local Peruvian Soles). You can also pay online with PAYPAL or NIUBIZ (credit or debit card), but you will have to add an additional 5% fee charged for the use of their secure payment gateway. We do not accept bank checks or payment of the balance by traveler’s checks.

Duffel Bag or Canvas Case

You’ll receive a canvas case or duffel bag during your briefing. Our horses will carry them, and the horsemen will hand them to you when you get to each camp. They measure 60 x 24 x 22 cm (23.6 x 9.45 x 8.66 in).

A maximum of 7 kg / 15.4 lb is allowed for each duffel bag, including the weight of your sleeping bag, sleeping mat, clothes, and other personal items.

Can I store my luggage at your office?

Of course! During the trip, your main luggage can be stored at our office (you can organize it with us on the briefing day or by email) or at your hotel, both free of charge.

Any equipment that you won’t need on the trek can be stored safely in your hotel. Nearly every hotel will provide this service. Don’t leave items of value with your bags; put them in the hotel safe and obtain an itemized receipt (in the unlikely case of theft, many insurance companies require that you have a copy of the receipt itemizing everything). It’s best to put items such as credit cards inside a sealed, signed envelope for extra peace of mind.

Pick up of guests

Salkantay Trekking can pick you up from your hotel, as long as it’s in the Historical Center of Cusco. Your guide will coordinate the pickup time in the briefing session, but please keep in mind that the time may vary between 30 and 45 minutes due to traffic.

Cusco is an old city, meaning it has many narrow cobbled streets. Some hotels and Airbnbs may be located on streets without access to cars or on long, steep slopes, making it difficult to transport luggage. We strongly recommend that you book accommodation with good access.

Group Tours

Group tours are made up of different types of people, then physical conditions and ages can vary. By agreeing to be part of a group tour, you also accept that some people may be faster or slower than you. Therefore, each person can go at their own pace on the route.

It may be the case that a group wishes to modify the tour; however, the guide will be the one who decides, after consulting with all the participants, if such modifications are possible.

Strikes and demonstrations

Strikes and demonstrations are common in Peru, and this may interrupt some of our tours. Roads can be blocked, and train tracks can be taken over. However, we will try to keep your trip as originally planned, even if it means leaving the night before the scheduled date.

Under these circumstances, tours may also be canceled. In case of changes or cancellations, everything will be coordinated with you by our operations department. Your safety is our highest priority, and our decisions will be made to protect it.

Lost objects

Please pay attention to where you leave your things and remember to take everything once you leave our transport, tents or restaurants. You’re the only one responsible for your objects during the tour.
