CHOQUEQUIRAO TREK 4D/3N
This amazingly rewarding 4 day trek is for trekkers with a high level of fitness and endurance for steep up and downhill routes. Choquequirao is isolated and requires a tough two day plus trek to reach the archeological zone, visiting the site on the morning of day three. Once there the sense of achievement is exhilarating. The site is impressively vast with an equally large area yet to be excavated. The backdrop is overwhelming. To say this site is a sight to behold is a massive understatement!

west of Cusco travelling through some beautiful countryside out into the rural district of
Apurimac. Then we carry on by car for another almost one hour to meet our trek crew at
our starting point called Capuliyoq, very close to our first mountain pass (Capuliyoq Pass,
2900m/9514) and the beginning of today’s long descent.
DAY 2 - PLAYA ROSALINA TO CHOQUEQUIRAO CAMPSITE
DAY 3 - CHOQUEQUIRAO CITADEL TO PLAYA ROSALINA
Start Height: 2847m/9340ft
DAY 4 - PLAYA ROSALINA TO CHIQUISCA TO CAPULIYOC
The sights were unforgettable. Incredible microclimates with endless kinds of flora and fauna, butterflies, waterfalls, wild strawberries, racing clouds, tree canopies. Thousands of years old aqueducts and. ancient Incan ruins, meeting local people along the way. We were awed by the numerous valleys, towering mountain ranges, glaciers, and our summit views. On our 1st night of camp, our bright view of the milky-way galaxy was incredible. We loved touring the coffee plantation, zip-lining and very much enjoyed the hot springs on our 3rd day. Our camping tents were perfectly comfortable. Our train ride on Peru Rail and accommodations in Cola de Mono and Aguas Calientes were also very nice. Machu Picchu and its history was unreal and climbing Huayna Picchu was totally worth it!
