Highlights

The best of Choquequirao Trek 4 Days

More than 100 years have passed since explorer Hiram Bingham first made the existence of Choquequirao known to the world, and the majesty of the citadel has not diminished since then.

When this magnificent city was rediscovered, no one visited it because we already had Machu Picchu. One historian assumed that Choquequirao was the Golden City, and it was later proven to be the last refuge of the Incas before the Peruvian coast.

The location of the city is close to the gods (sky, sun, moon, star and mountain). This spectacular 4-Day Choquequirao Trek will take you to the enigmatic last refuge of the Incas.
