Trek to Choquequirao

5 days, Cusco to Cusco

!

Sorry! There are no remaining departures for "Trek to Choquequirao" (SPCT),but here are some similar trips.

This five-day trek is perfect if you’re looking for an adventure that’s as challenging as it is rewarding. Explore the ruins of Choquequirao, the lost city that’s even more remote than nearby Machu Picchu. Because of its difficult-to-reach location, the site sees relatively few visitors. This means you'll get to experience Incan history in near-solitude, surrounded by nothing but ancient architecture and spanning forests. These spectacular views of the Andes are all along the trek to Choquequirao, a journey filled with lush wildlife and breathtaking vistas you won’t soon forget.
