CHOQUEQUIRAO 5 DAYS / 4 NIGHTS

 

 

Duration:      5 Days / 4 Nights

Departure:   Every day

 

 

DAY 1: CUSCO – CACHORA – CHIKISKA

 

We leave Cusco very early, bound for Cachora, 4 hoursʼ drive away. In Cachora, we will meet up with the professional cooks, porters and guide who will accompany us throughout the trek. After a short break, we start walking. Our first camp site is at Chikiska.

 

DAY 2: CHIKISKA – SANTA ROSA

 

We have a steep descent and a steep ascent today, and it can get very hot at lower altitudes. To minimise fatigue, we recommend that you keep the weight of your backpack low.

After breakfast, we begin the dayʼs walk with a descent to the canyon of the impressive Apurimac River. We will stop for restful lunch in the area of Playa Rosalina, before ascending for 2.5 hours to Santa Rosa, where we camp for the night. At dinner, you can enjoy a local drink, ‘scrimʼ.

 

DAY 3: SANTA ROSA – CHOQUEQUIRAO

 

We walk for 4 hours today. We begin early to take advantage of the freshness of the morning and to avoid the worst of the afternoon heat. We will stop for lunch at Marampata, and in the afternoon arrive at the archaeological site of Choquequirao, where we will camp for the night on the terraces.

 

DAY 4: CHOQUEQUIRAO – CHIKISKA

 

We spend the morning exploring the archaeological features of Choquequirao, and visiting the museum, which houses some of the pieces found during excavations. If we are lucky, we will see condors. Then we return, via lunch at Santa Rosa, to Chikiska, where we camp for the night.

 

DAY 5: CHIKISKA – CACHORA – CUSCO

 

After an early breakfast, we ascend to our starting point of Cachora. We will enjoy lunch here, before boarding a bus back to Cusco. We arrive in Cusco at about 6 p.m.
