Choquequirao Trek 5 days and 4 nights

For those who prefer to explore untouched terrain, we have created the Ultimate Choquequirao Trek. The trek to Choquekiraw navigates both the region's lush cloud forests and snowcapped Andean mountains. While Machu Picchu gets close to 5000 visitors a day, Choquequirao may see less than a dozen, making this place a truly unique and quite retreat. Choquekiraw has been nicknamed the 'Twin Sister of Machu Picchu' as the master Inca builders have anchored another huge city, made entirely of stone, in an impossible location overlooking one of the deepest canyons of Peru. Enjoy the peace and serenity of this majestic place while you still can: Choquequirao has been tipped to soon become one of Peru’s hottest tourist destinations

The lost city of Choquequirao is located in a spectacular place: perched in the Peruvian Andes overlooking the deep canyon. This is a very important city from the Inca empire, built towards the end of their rule. Choquequirao was probably one of the entrance checkpoints to Vilcabamba - the last capital of the Incas - and was only recently re-discovered in the early 19th century.
