Classic Choquequirao Trek 5 Days

Choquequirao Trek 5 Days is a package designed for tourists that wish to have more time to visit the beautiful Inca city of Choquequirao and discover at a more relaxed pace one of the last residences of the Inca. This marvel of history is not only famous for its Inca constructions but is also complemented by natural beauty in perfect harmony.

The walk from Cachora to Choquequirao has a distance of approximately 30 kilometers, and During these five days of walking, we will enjoy impressive landscapes. Our groups are small; for this reason, our service is personalized.

Just like Cusco, the ancient capital of the Inca and other Andean communities, Choquequirao is organized into two halves or neighborhoods: the upper, or Hanan, and the lower or Hurin.

The upper unites various buildings related to religion, temples, and fountains grouped around a plaza, grand terraces irrigated by a series of channels, and deposits (or Collcas) to store the products used to supply the local population. Half of the lower area accommodates significant well-preserved buildings built around a wide-open space.

We also offer Choquequirao Trek 5 Days with the finish at Villa de Loros – Tambobamba (Available only from May to October)

Departure & Return Location:

Hotel Cusco.

Departure Time:

Pick up from your hotel (4:00 am – 4:30 am).

  • Like Machu Picchu, Choquequirao has structures that mark solar events such as solstices and equinoxes.
  • You will be practically alone with an archeological site very spectacular like Machu Picchu.
  • The few tourists who visited Choquequirao agree that it was worth it.
  • Learn a lot about the Inca culture.
  • Discover the second lost city of the Incas.
  • The Choquequirao ruins receive less than a dozen visitors a day.

IMPORTANT INFO BEFORE YOU GO

Deposits

A non-refundable deposit (varies depending on tour) is payable from the Client to Huaynas Expeditions when reserving any Product. If the reservation is made 7 days or fewer before departure, full payment is required at the time of booking. Depending on the original booking method, the client should send the non-refundable deposit to Huaynas Expeditions or the authorized Agent through whom they made their reservation.

Tour Briefing

A pre-tour briefing is given to you, ideally two days before the start of the trek. This is comprehensive information on the tour schedule, required gear, altitude, weather, etc. Questions and concerns will be clarified so that you fully comprehend the tour schedule.

Acclimatization

It is strongly suggested to be progressively acclimatized; thus, you should arrive in Cusco 2 days previous to trek departure. Altitude sickness causes you a headache, stomache, hands tingling, etc. There is certain medicine you may take to avoid altitude sickness, for instance acetazalomide; moreover, it is helpful to have coca tea; and hot liquids to not become dehydrated. You must descend as the ultimate emergency if you develop serious altitude sickness.

Pick Up of Guests

If your hotel is located in the Historical Center of Cusco, Huaynas Expeditions will pick you up there. Although your guide will schedule the pickup time during the briefing, please be aware that the pickup time could change by up to 20 minutes due to traffic.

Cusco is an ancient city, and there are lots of winding cobblestone streets there. It may be challenging to move luggage to some hotels and Airbnbs because they are situated on car-free streets or long, including inclines. Booking lodging with adequate access is something we strongly advise.

Duffel Bag or Canvas Case

You’ll be given a canvas case or duffel bag during your briefing. Our horses will transport them, and the horsemen will hand them to you as you arrive at each camp. They are 60 x 24 x 22 centimetres (23.6 x 9.45 x 8.66 in).

Each duffel bag can only contain a maximum of 7 kilogrammes (15.4 lb), which includes the weight of your clothing, sleeping bag, and other personal belongings.

Strikes and Demonstrations

Strikes and demonstrations are frequent in Peru, which may stop some of our tours. Roads can be stopped, and train tracks can be taken over. However, we will attempt to keep your vacation as initially planned, even if it means leaving the night before the scheduled date. Under these conditions, trips may potentially be cancelled. In case of changes or cancellations, our operations department will manage everything with you. Your safety is our priority, and our decisions will be taken to protect it.

Group Tours

Because group trips are made up of various persons, physical states and ages may differ. You acknowledge that some persons may be faster or slower than you if you choose to participate in a group trip. As a result, everyone on the road may proceed at their own speed.

It is conceivable that a group may want to change the itinerary; however, after discussing with all participants, the guide will determine if such changes are allowed.

Travel Insurance

We highly advise you to buy comprehensive travel insurance before departing. A comprehensive travel insurance coverage that covers everything from high-altitude treks to unforeseen trip adjustments is a must-have travel gear. Please remember that your standard medical insurance plan will not cover some possibilities in your own country. We suggest searching for a plan that covers the following coverage:

  • Adventure trips and any specific activity you will be undertaking on your journey (such as a high-altitude trek);
  • Recovery of your non-refundable booking deposit in the event of trip cancellation due to illness or accidental injury;
  • National or international emergency evacuation;
  • Patriation of remains in the event of death;
  • Other medical expenses related to injury, illness or death.

While we try to be understanding when situations arise, the fact is that Trip Changes and Trip Cancellation incur penalties.

Passport

To book the below things in your name, we require a photo of your passport’s bio page (Peruvian Government Requirement). Please keep in mind that each traveler must be aware of the re-entry laws for their place of residence/citizenship. Some nations require a passport valid for 6 months beyond the travel date. Please confirm that your passport is current and meets your country’s and residency standards. We can purchase your flights with an expired passport, but we will require a copy of the current passport as soon as you receive it in order to update your tickets.

Visa’s

Most countries are permitted to obtain a visa at the point of arrival. Only a few nations require visas to be obtained in advance. Please remember that each tourist is responsible for determining whether or not a visa is required before admission. Please remember that tourist visas are usually valid for 90 days or less and require proof of return travel.

Lost Objects

Please be aware of where you leave your belongings, and remember to take everything with you once you leave our transportation, tents, or restaurants. You are solely responsible for your items throughout the trip.

Enjoy the private guided tour and explore the beautiful areas of the temples, terraces, palaces, the llama’s area, and much more.

Choquequirao means “Cradle of Gold” in Quechua Inca’s language, although this is probably not its original name. It is another “Lost City of the Incas” rediscovered officially late in the 20th century. It is located high on a ridge spur almost 1750 meters above the raging glacier-fed Apurimac River and is surrounded by the towering Salkantay and Humantay snow-capped peaks. Excavations and restoration of the 1810 hectares site began in the 1990s, and it is estimated that only 30% of the site has been restored to date. Every day archeologists are finding new things.

At noon, our cook and horseman will bring us lunch to the Choquequirao Park, after lunch in the park we will have free time to relax and then continue exploring the lower part of Choquequirao, we will visit the lower part of Choquequirao, where we will find the terraces of Pacchayoc (not all of them go there), whose name corresponds to the extraordinary waterfall that is located in front and the middle of a deep ravine, the crystalline waters of the snowy Padreyoc whispers a beautiful symphony, coming from nature that seemed to want to enchant us with its infinite murmurs.

After visiting Pacchayoc, we will return to the Marampata campsite, where we will have our tea and dinner.

Day 5: Chiquiska - Capuliyoc - Sayhuite - Cusco.

After breakfast, we start our last day hiking and leave the campsite as early as possible to avoid the midday sun, which is exhausting.

Once we arrive, we will enjoy our last lunch and have a farewell time to our muleteers, cook, and tour guide, who were part of our team for a 5-day trek to Choquequirao.

After that, we’ll take our private transport back to Cusco for about 5 hours with some stop-offs on the way; one of them is a stop at Saywite, a unique place to see an amazing Incan monolith called the monolith of Saywite is a symbolic representation of our cosmos, where the Incas used a living granite rock to carve over 208 figures like geometric and zoomorphic figures, including reptiles, frogs, felines, irrigation channels, etc. The site is regarded as a center of religious worship for the Incan people, focusing on water. It’s a giant granite boulder whose circumference is about 11 m / 36.08 ft, 4 m / 13.12 ft in diameter, and about 2 m / 6.56 ft high. After learning about this site, we’ll take our picnic lunch close by to this site. We’ll then drive back to Cusco for about 3 hours. All meals included, except dinner.

Tipping is not required, but it is appreciated if you are satisfied with the services. Even though it might not be familiar in your country, the people who will look after you during the tour place a lot of importance on it. Many Huaynas Expeditions’ destinations encourage top-notch service and are a foundational aspect of the travel and tourism sector. It’s up to you how much to tip based on how well you thought out the tour and how long it lasted. Remember that leaving a tip is optional and should only be done if you receive first-class service.

Is Choquequirao worth it?

If you are interested in the Inca history, it is worth trekking to Choquequirao. Primarily because, like Machu Picchu, Choquequirao served as a royal estate to Incas. However, it was not conquered by Spanish rulers due to its remote location.

What is the altitude of Choquequirao?

Choquequirao is 3033 metres above sea level.

Can I visit both Choquequirao and Machu Picchu on the same tour?

Yes, we have tours that combine both Incan sites.

Is there a cable car in Choquequirao?

The project to make a cable car that connected the town of Cachora to Marampata was not completed due to the frequent presence of landslides, and this plan was gradually lost.

What is Choquequirao?

Choquequirao is named after Quechua Chuqi K’iraw, the cradle of gold. Located just over 3,000 meters high, they are Inca terraces and buildings, very similar to the citadel of Machu Picchu in terms of its architecture. Some call it the “Sacred Sister of Machu Picchu” or “Second Machu Picchu.” The site is not as large as Machu Picchu, but travelers much less crowd it; since it can only be accessed on foot, it is the longest and most complete road in Peru with a tour operator.
