Choquequirao Trek in 4 days

Take an adventure through the best flora and fauna of Peru and incredible wildlife to the magnificent Inca site of Choquequirao, guarded by the amazing condor, where the gods of the Incas once ruled. Choquequirao is one of the most important Inca sites in Peru and has more than just ruins to offer.

Choquequirao (means golden cradle in quechua) is the sister city of Machu Picchu because of their architectural and structural similarity. It is considered as the last Inca refuge. This archaeological complex resisted for decades the Spanish conquerors. You can appreciate the grandeur of his work with a perfect architecture and aesthetics. This complex is part of the system of the Andean citadels in the Vilcabamba Valley. In the Inca times it was united with the archaeological group of Machu Picchu with a complex network of Inca roads. It is currently visited and toured by tourists as scholars of world history. Its flora and fauna of high forest and its topography also attract the attention of the visitors. This archaeological group has several Inca constructions and for that reason was declared Cultural Heritage by the Governments of France and Peru.
