  • Tour Map

This tour to Choquequirao of 4 days is one of the most beautiful ones. Most of the people who already made this tour say that it is tiring, but the effort is always worth it. The landscapes that are appreciated are unique and the ancestral energy is felt from the first step. It is not said in vain that Choquequirao is the only attraction in Cusco at the height of competing with Machu Picchu.

DAY 1 CUSCO - CHIQUISCA

We leave Cusco at 6:00 a.m. in our private transport and we will go to Cachora, an Andean community located 4-5h from Cusco at 2800m / 9184 feet, the starting point of the walk where we meet our muleteers and horses.

DAY 2 CHIQUISCA - CHOQUEQUIRAO

We leave Chiquisca at 6:00 a.m. in the direction of Playa Rosalina, a journey which will last approximately one hour. Next, we will cross the Apurimac River and begin the ascent to Santa Rosa, zigzagging along a steep slope. This climb takes about 2 hours, and it is important to leave early so that the heat does not make the walk more difficult than it needs to be.

DAY 3 CHOQUEQUIRAO - ROSALINA BEACH

This morning we will enjoy a complete guided tour of the Choquequirao complex: we will visit the upper part (Hanan), and the lower parts (Urin), and some areas still covered with wild foliage and ready to be restored in the way it was during the Inca times.

DAY 4 ROSALINA BEACH - CACHORA

We leave the camp after breakfast to start the climb two to three hours to Chiquisca, then make our way back to the Abra Capuliyoca, near which we have our lunch. In the afternoon, we continue on our way back two hours to Cachora, where a private transport will be waiting for us to take us back to Cusco.
