Choquequirao Archeological Park, Sacred Valley

Visit the Incan site of Choquequirao Archeological Park, a terraced structure similar in architecture to the famed Machu Picchu. Hike through peaceful valleys filled with large agave plants and interesting wildlife, learn about the Incan culture and history, and observe the artworks left over by a long-gone civilization. The Incan settlement can only be reached by a 2-4 day trek from Cusco, but you can choose to hike here on your own or on an organized tour with a guide, mules, and a chef.

  • It is one of the most intense hikes and one of the most hermozas, the mountains, the river, the trails, everything gives you different perspectives in the trek, when you get to Choquequirao it feels so satisfactory that the way back is made easier. It is advisable to go well prepared for this hike as they are 32 km of IDA and another 32 of return from. It's worth knowing.

  • Bigger than Macchu pitchu. Great real hiking. No train, walk of life!
  • For 60 soles you get to see much more authentic and calm city than Machu Picchu. Worth the trek, as the trek is beautiful in its own way.
