Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Pickup from your hotel in Cuzco and transfer to Cachora. Possibly visit of the archaeological site of Sahuite. Here you start the trail, already near the Apurimac canyon. It's only walking down until the bridge that crosses the Apurimac, but the descend is about 1600m! The camp is near the bridge, called Playa Rosalina, or 1 hour before in Chikisqa.

Day 2: From the camp, after crossing the bridge, you have to climb all your way to the ruins, the first 3 hours being very steep! But the views are spectacular! Deep down is the canyon and there can be condors around. You enter the ruins late in the afternoon.

Day 3: Take your time to visit the place! Choquequirao was an important Inca site! It is the remotest of the major sites on a ridge spur almost 1800m above the Apurimac river. It is suggested to have been the place where the last Inca Tupac Amaru was raised among Inca priestesses (Gary Ziegler). An other suggestion is that it was built as a 'royal estate' for Topa Inca, son of Pachacutec (Vincent Lee).

Day 4: Walk into the Apurimac valley, you can have a ´caña´ in Santa Rosa, cross the Apurimac river. You can have a swim here. Camp here or 1 hour up in Chikisqa.

Day 5: It takes about 6 - 7 hours to reach the village of Cachora and there is an other pass to cross, so a lot of climbing to do. Be prepared: there is no water in about 4- 5 hours! After the last climb your transport is waiting for you to bring you back to Cuzco. At appropriate time, transfer to Cusco airport to board your flight back to Lima. Upon your arrival, international connection.
