Choquequirao Trek

4 Days/3 Nigths in Cusco

This is an alternative to the traditional tours in a hike where you will get to know Choquequirao, the last refuge of the Incas. This city has centuries old, huge platforms with figures that represent diverse mammals of the highlands of the Andes (auchenids) and incredible buildings above streams; is considered the sister of Machu Picchu because of the similarity in their architecture. Also the environment that surrounds this impressive complex is one of the richest in biological diversity.
