Choquequirao Peru Trek

Trek to Choquequira Extension o - Tour

4 Days / 3 Nights
From 705
* flights not included

Summary

Hike to Choquequirao, named the sister city of Machu Picchu because the size and grandeur of the city’s ruins rival those of Machu Picchu. Choquequirao is also located in a strategic place in the cloud forest west of Machu Picchu above the Apurimac River, a location which may have had religious significance to the Incas. This 4 day Choquequirao trek will take you deep into the cloud forest where the last Inca Emperor, Manco Capac, fled to escape from the Spanish conquistadors. A 5-day version of the Choquequirao trek is also available.

Note: This is a tour extension, combine this tour with one of our full package tours.
