Choquequirao Trek Classic 4 Days 3 Nights

Choquequirao is located to the northeast of Cusco city, among Apurimac river and the mountainous range of Vilcabamba. Can be translated by “Golden Cradle”, It is situated at 10,911 ft. Its archeological sites are as important as Machu Picchu because both are situated in similar places, on the heights of a river’s canyon, almost inaccessible, with spectacular views and are interconnected by well built inka trails.
