Walk to Choquequirao 04 Days 03 Nights

Choquequirao, in Quechua language means "Cradle of Gold". One of the most beautiful adventure walks, since they know one of the last Inca bastions, tells that, like the citadel of Machu Picchu, this fortress must have been the political, religious and social center of the Inca culture. It is a tour of great physical demand, since you usually walk an average of 6 hours a day, for which it is required that visitors have good physical conditions and are accustomed. The route has different nuances, as for the landscape, you can see the wonderfulness of the Apurimac canyon, pass through several villages of the route such as Cachora and Chiquisca where we will have the opportunity to share a little with the residents about their way of life and customs . The tour is recommended for those who like outdoor walks and a lot of contact with nature. Any questions we are here to help you.
