THE DIFFICULTY OF THIS TREK (DEMANDING)


The maximum height can go up to 4600 msl. The average hiking time is 7- 8 hours (with a few days up to 10 hours) per day. On the routes high passes of over 4,600 m are traversed, steep and difficult terrain is common, with altitude differences of up to 1,000 m. Daily hikes cover 10 -15 km. Please note: Choquequirao is a route for sure-footed and experienced mountain hikers in good physical condition and with a high level of endurance for steep up and downhill routes. We do not recommend this trek for people with acute knee problems and would reccommend knee supports or knee braces. Appropriate altitude tolerance is required.





 

                      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!
