    Day 1: Cusco - Cachora – Santa Rosa

    We depart early in the morning heading northwest of Cusco (3,300mt/10,800ft) in the direction of Cachora (2,909mt/9,543ft) for a 3 hour drive. In Cachora you will have the opportunity to stop and stretch or a rest room stop. Continue our drive to Capuliyoc (2,915 mt/ 9,561 ft) with lovely views of the Apurimac Valley stretched out in front of us. Here we meet the Mule handlers with their mules that will carry all the camping equipment during the expedition. From here, we will walk down a steep trail to the Apurimac Canyon taking in spectacular views as we descend to Chiquisca (1,836mt/6,023ft), with breathtaking views. After an hour we arrive at the roaring Apurimac River (1,550mt /5,084ft) where we begin to climb to Santa Rosa (2,200m/7,215ft.) , our next campsite.
    Hiking time: 7 hours
    Meals: L, D


    Day 2: Santa Rosa – 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 Maranpata (3,110m/10,120ft) 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 (3,110m/10,120ft) 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


    Day 3: Choquequirao – La Playa Rosalina

    Today's focus is on the exploration of Choquequirao. Waking up early we head out on a guided tour of the site which shows you the most important and interesting sections of the city and the opportunity to learn about the Inca culture and the close relationship between Choquequirao and Machu Picchu. Compared to Machu Picchu little is known of Choquequirao although the people where aware of its existence. Originally discovered in the 17th century by the Spaniards but abandoned and forgotten until a few years ago, when tourism raised the profile of the city and began exploring it. Walk down the side and be amazed by the series of enormous agricultural terraces, each decorated with a llama motif. After our intense visit we will walk back to Santa Rosa and continue to La Playa Rosalina (1,550m/5,085ft) about a 4 hour hike down. Our camp tonight is at La Playa Rosalina.  
    Hiking: 5 hours
    Meals: B, L, D
