Tour Details

Choquequirao Huanipaca Trek is a four days trek from Cusco. It takes you to the sister city of Machu Picchu, Choquequirao. Choquequirao in Quechua means “Cradle of Gold”. During the reign of Pachacuti, he built this citadel during te same era as Machu Picchu. 

Due to its remote location it is not popular as Machu Picchu. The only way to reach the archeological complex is by trekking for four days.  As a result, it attracts a handful of visitors in comparison to Machu Picchu which gets around 5000 daily visitors. However, the Peruvian government is planning to install a cable car from the nearby village. This will increase the number of visitors. 

The Classic Choquequirao Trek is a circuit. You will be walking back and forth from the nearby village on the same route. Choquequirao Huanipaca Trek is more of an alternate route. On the first two days of the trek, you will be trekking on the same route as the classic trek. However, instead of returning back to the starting point, on the third day you will be trekking to San Ignacio. It is a place deep inside the Apurimac Canyons. 

Although Huanipaca Choquequirao Trek is relatively easier than the classic trek, you would need to be physically fit and well acclimatised to avoid altitude sickness.
