I had wanted to visit Machu Picchu for so long (45 years) that I was afraid it would be an anticlimax. So I decided to join a trek to Choquequirao - a place about which I knew only a little. We went with a guide...More

I visited Choquequirao on the trail to Machu Picchu. Choquequirao is special, for its remote location, few visitors, and spectacular setting and as an introduction to the Inca Empire. Its terraces are impressive for their location, scale and "llama" stonework. We liked Machu Picchu, but...More

The place may be bigger than Machu Picchu, the ruins less explored and less restorated. The beauty is in the trek and the visit of the ruins. I was there at one moment completely alone, so there is no comparison with his more popular brother...More

Now is the time to do this trek. Machu Picchu, as beautiful as it is, it has become crowded and overrun with tourists. Choquequirao is beautiful and unspoiled, this is largely because it is ONLY accesible by trekking in...large portions of the trail are very...More

We did Choquequirao trek in November 2015 independently, without any guide or porter, the trek isn't difficult, the trail is easy to follow. We did it in 6 days, spent 3 days/2 nights at the ruins and really enjoyed it! Unspoilt place, beautiful scenery, no...More

My partner and I are planning a trek in Peru, February, 2017. We are interested in trekking to Choquequiaro for its remoteness. Do you know the status of the cable car project? We don't want hordes of tourist on the trek! Cheers, Cecilia Canada

Hello, I have a question for those who have done a guided Choquequirao Trek: what was the average cost of your tour? (4days/3nights) Thank you.

Hi, By guided, do you mean you hired mules and guide but planned your meals, tents, etc. or you booked a full tour with everything included? For the former, we payed $50 per day for the guide and $50 per mule.
