Choquequirao Archeological Park, Sacred Valley

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.

  • Had a great time with great friends and an outstanding tour group Pachatusantrek. This was a great experience for my first hiking trip  more »
  • Choquequirao is one of the best hidden Inca ruins. Hiram Bingham has been there, but has assessed it as not important. People still don't know exactly what the function has been. 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.
