Choquequirao Trek to Machu Picchu 8D

This unique trek features two of the finest examples of Inca architecture: Choquequirao and Machu Picchu. Choquequirao is larger than Machu Picchu and there is not much known. It is more reclusive and you will feel as you are the first to discover it. Due to its remote location, Choquequirao (“cradle of gold”) receives fewer visitors. Nestled on a prominent ridge overlooking the chasm created by the Apurímac River, this mythical city must have rivaled Machu Picchu in terms of beauty. It was explored briefly by Hiram Bingham in his search for Vilcabamba.  After a fantastic time continue to one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Machu Picchu. This is a perfect alternative to the Inca Trail but a tough one. If, you are an experienced hiker in fit condition, then this is the trek for you.

    Day 3 Cusco - Cachora – Santa Rosa

    We depart early in the morning heading northwest of Cusco (3300m/10800ft) in the direction of Cachora (2909m/9543ft) for 4 hours drive. In Cachora you will have the opportunity to stop and stretch or a rest room stop. Continue our drive to Capuliyoc (2915m/561ft) with lovely views of the Apurimac Valley stretched out in front of us.

    Meals: L, D


    Day 4 Santa Rosa – Marampata - Choquequirao (Cradle of Gold)

    After an early breakfast we start our early hike to avoid the hot sun. Our walk starts with a tough uphill climb from Santa Rosa to Marampata (3110m/10120ft) which will take about 3 hours. We will take a break here and have our first view of the Choquequirao ruins. From here we hike another 2 hours to the archeological site and to our campsite (3110m/10120ft) nearest to the ruins where we will have lunch. After lunch, we head to the Choquequirao complex for the afternoon. We will begin to explore the area, and then see the sunset and keep our fingers crossed for the chance to see condors. Only around 40% of the Inca remains of Choquequirao have been excavated. What can be seen today however, is most impressive and very much worth the challenging trek to get here. The stonework in Choquequirao is not as sophisticated as that found in Machu Picchu, because the stone found here is very difficult to carve, but the buildings are impressive and suggest a site of high status. Choquequirao evokes a sense of awe simply because of the sites’ surrounding beauty and isolation and condors can be seen frequently soaring the skies.
    Return to our campsite for dinner and to relax under the many stars above us.
    Hiking time: 5 hours
    Meals: B, L, D

Enjoy a break by the river and admire the surroundings. Afterwards, we hike up to our campsite at Chiquisca (1836m/6023ft) for about 3 hours. Enjoy the subtropical surroundings and tranquility of the area.

    Day 4 Chinchero Weaving – Paso Horseback riding Moray Maras - Ollantaytambo Ruins

    After breakfast, your guide will meet you around 8:00am and drive towards Chinchero (3762mt/12343ft) 35 minutes from Cusco. Visit a local family´s home to watch a colorful traditional weaving demonstration using ancient techniques. They will show you the entire process of dying using natural dyes made from plants, flowers and insects, spinning it into yarn and weaving it on their looms. They produce wonderful works such as shawls (mantas), belts (watanas), and caps (chullos), among other things. After this incredible experience we drive to the town of Maras where we will meet the Chalan and Paso horses. The Peruvian Paso horse is carefully bred for a light pleasure saddle horse known for its smooth ride. It is distinguished by a natural, four-beat, lateral gait called the Paso llano. Start trotting on this gorgeous Paso horse up to Moray located on a high plateau at about 3500mt/11500ft) and just west of the village of Maras located below. After a 1.5 hour smooth ride visit the stunning agricultural circles which are in a large bowl depression with many terraces. This archeological site is believed (in theory) to have been used by the Incas as an agricultural experiment center. The vast temperature difference created micro climates, similar to what is achieved in greenhouses in modern times that was possibly used by the Inca to study the effects of different climatic conditions on crops. Enjoy a box lunch in the open air in nature with spectacular views. After lunch we mount our horses and ride down the dirt road to the old colonial town of Maras (3380mt/11090ft) for another 1.5 hours. Here we leave our horses and continue by private transport driving up the narrow dirt road to the Maras Salt Pans. The small salt pans are built on steep terraces along one side of a narrow valley which is nourished by the salt spring waters that surface from a subterranean stream in the mountain. There are about 3000 wells which are left to evaporate and are gathered by hand without any machinery. Taste the salty waters and enjoy the serenity and peaceful walk through the ponds. Finally, after a glorious time we will drive to Urubamba to have lunch and relax. We continue to the Inca town of Ollantaytambo for a visit of the ruins. Return to your hotel.
    Overnight in the Sacred Valley
    Breakfast and lunch included
