Visit the Incan site of Choquequirao Archeological Park, a terraced structure similar in architecture to the famed Machu Picchu. Hike through peaceful valleys filled with large agave plants and interesting wildlife, learn about the Incan culture and history, and observe the artworks left over by a long-gone civilization. The Incan settlement can only be reached by a 2-4 day trek from Cusco, but you can choose to hike here on your own or on an organized tour with a guide, mules, and a chef.

It is larger than and far more remote located than Machu Picchu and is located in a difficult accessible place. So it is certainly not so to do in the Sacred Valley!!!! It is not... But in the Apurímac zone, so still a good end of Cusco. I have been there since 1998 five times, always with local people and also through the long routes of Santa Teresa or Mollepata. Several phases of the cleaning and restoration process. Very impressive!
Bigger than Macchu pitchu. Great real hiking. No train, walk of life!
For 60 soles you get to see much more authentic and calm city than Machu Picchu. Worth the trek, as the trek is beautiful in its own way.
