5 Day Trek to Choquequirao plus Machu Picchu

Choquequirao is exceptionally great as Machu Picchu, this antiquated Inca city was a station and is shockingly safeguarded, It is less known than Machu Picchu, it isn’t totally investigated, it is virgin, and it is free of substantial groups. It is come to by a less known Inca street 60 km (38 miles) in length. Choquequirao is known as the sister of Machu Picchu.

It is a huge archeological complex with structures and porches, all things considered, some portion of the city is still during the time spent cleaning and reclamation, since it is covered by vegetation gathered over hundreds of years, notwithstanding, this is a piece of its appeal, since it transforms the experience into a legitimate investigation.

We weren’t prepared for how stunning the views were. Machu Picchu has been seen by everyone so when you first see it, it looks like every postcard. I highly recommend this because we didn’t fully understand how large, breathtaking and rich in history this site is. We explored it for over six hours without getting even slightly bored. Well worth the challenging climb. Be prepared to be completely overwhelmed by the view, the history, the clouds. Absolutely amazing experience!!!

Coś wspaniałego!!! Trudno dostępne miejsce co dodatkowo podnosi jego atrakcyjność i powoduje, że prawie wcale nie ma turystów (16.05.2018). Pod względem komercjalizacji przeciwieństwo Machu Picchu
