Choquequirao Treks 4D/3N


Day 1 Cusco - Chiquisca

We leave Cusco at 6:00 am in our private transport and head towards Cachora, an Andean community of Cusco 4-5h to 2800m/9184 ft, the starting point of the trek where we meet our horsemen and horses. We started our hike up for two hours to the open Capuliyoc to 2750m/9020 ft, where you can enjoy beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and the Apurimac River Canyon. We continue descending for two hours to Chiquisca, where we set up our camp and spend the night.

Day 2 Chiquisca – Choquequirao

we leave Chiquisca at 6.00 am heading to Playa Rosalina, which will last approximately one hour. Then cross the Apurimac River and start the climb towards Santa Rosa, zigzagging down a steep slope. This climb takes 2 hours approximate, and it is important to leave early so that the heat does not make it harder to walk than it needs to be. In Santa Rosa, we have a half hour break, where if you wish may try Cambray, an extract from the local sugar cane. Then we continue our walk up slowly for two hours and a half to reach our lunch place in Marampata. From here we walk two hours to reach the archaeological complex of Choquequirao, located 3103m/10178 ft, where we camp, we will have free time to enjoy and explore the terraces and buildings.

Day 3 Choquequirao to Playa Rosalina

This morning enjoy a complete guided tour of the complex of Choquequirao: visit the top (Hanan), and the lower parts (Urin), and some areas still covered in wild foliage and ready to be restored to the way it was in the time of the Incas. After the tour, we started our walk back to Santa Rosa, where we have lunch. We continue descending for another 2 hours until we reach Rosalina Beach 1450m/4756 ft, camp and have dinner here.

Day 4 Playa Rosalina at Cachora

We leave camp after breakfast to start climbing two to three hours to Chiquisca, then make your way back to the open Capuliyoca, near which we have our lunch. In the afternoon, we continue on our way back from two hours to Cachora, where private transportation will be waiting to take us back to Cusco. Estimated time of arrival around 9:00 pm
