DAY 1

Cusco – Lima Tambo Ruins – Cachora – Chiquisca

At 5:00 am we will pick you up from your hotel and we will leave Cusco in our private van that takes us to the town of San Pedro de Cachora (2800m). There you have plenty of time to try a local breakfast (not included in the package, although the price is quite reasonable). We will meet with the rest of our team (cooks and muleteers) and we will begin our long walk of the day, it will take us between 7 and 8 hours in this mountainous region. On the way we will observe various typical landscapes of the different climates of the area with views such as the snow-capped mountain of Pedroyoc or even the diversity of flora and fauna that enhance our experience.

Finally we will arrive at the Capulichayoc viewpoint from where we will be able to observe the deepest canyon in the world, the Apurímac, with the Apurímac river at the bottom. Here we have our first lunch and our first views of Choquequirao. Once we rest, we continue descending to Chiquisca (1800m) where we set up the tents and spend the night surrounded by wonderful landscapes.
Meals: Lunch – Dinner

DAY 2

Chiquisca – Maranpata – Choquequirao Ruins

After a good breakfast, we begin a strenuous 5-hour hike until our lunch in Marcapata. Here we will have a guided visit to Choquequirao (the "Golden Cradle"), considered the Sister City of Machu Picchu for the many similarities they share. Choquequirao is 1500 meters above the Apurímac canyon, while Machu Picchu is towards the Urubamba canyon, they have the same latitude, and both are large citadels of more than 8 hectares, and so far only a third has been discovered.

Archaeologists make new discoveries every day. We will explore the three levels of the excavated ruins, appreciating the various houses, terraces and other elements of this late Inca town. We will camp next to Marcapata.
Meals: Breakfast - Lunch – Dinner

Chiquisca – Cachora – Cusco

On our journey, we reached the Capuliyoc viewpoint for the last time, where we said goodbye to the fabulous views of the Choquequirao ruins. We will also see the majestic snow-covered peak of Padreyoc overlooking the Apurimac Canyon while being surrounded by the special flora and forms of this area.
