Choquequirao (4 days 3 nights)

First day

At 4.00 in the morning we go to San Pedro de Cachoras where we will first have breakfast. From here we have a beautiful view on the majestic Padrayoc (5'482 m). We continue the hike and have lunch near Playa Rosalina. During the hike we have an unforgettable view into the Apurimac Canyon. We walk about nine hours on the first day and eventually spend the first night in Santa Rosa.

Second day

Next day early in the morning we continue to Choquecuirao where we have some time to enjoy the site. If we are lucky we can observe some condors as well. We continue until Raqaypata where we will spend the night. Our guide will explain the history of this special place.

Third day

Next day we hike back for about seven hours, we pass through the same villages and eat lunch in Playa Rosalina. After the break we keep going to Chiquisqa where we will spend the last night.

Fourth day

At 5.00am the next morning we start again direction Cachora where we have lunch. We have time to visit the Hot Springs and relax for a while before going back to Cuzco where we arrive at around 10.00pm.
