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.

  • This easily goes into top 5 of best sights in my life. The trek is fairly difficult because of steepness but final result is just breathtaking. No photos or videos can show the scale of surroundings, you need to see it yourself. Magical place. Leave a full day to explore, it's huge.
  • EARLY ! WAKE UP EARLY TO DO IT. It's beautiful 😍. Start walking before 5:30 am because at 9:00 am the sun hit like a truck already. 1500 m down through 9km, 1600 up through 6 km. It s not easy.
