Tour Details
Choquequirao to Vitcos Trek

Choquequirao Vitcos Trek is a historical trek from Cusco. On this eight days trek, you will be retracing the footsteps of Incas. The journey begins with a Classic Choquequirao Trek from Cusco.

After visiting the lost city of Incas, we will be trekking on a trail that was highly important to Incas. We will be hiking along the Vilcabamba Mountain Range. We will then be reaching the highest point of the trek at 4600 metres above sea level.

You will have an entrancing view of the snowcapped Andean peaks as you will be descending down to Vitcos. Vitcos – Rosaspata was the last stronghold of Incas.


It was built by Pachacutec during the same era as Machu Picchu. Choquequirao in Quechua means “Cradle of Gold”. It is often referred to as the the sister city of Machu Picchu. It is located quite remotely, this was the reason the Spanish conquistadors could not invade it. 


Vitcos Rosaspata was the last stronghold of Incas. After winning the battle of Ollantayambo in 1537, Manco Inca was certain about a following fierce-some attack by Spanish troops. He left Ollantaytambo as it was closer to Cusco. Manco Inca moved to Vitcos Rosaspata and then to Vilcabamba. 

If you want to culminate the eight days Choquequirao Vitcos Trek at Machu Picchu, check out our Choquequirao Vilcabamba Trek to Machu Picchu. If you want to get a deeper insight of the last refuge of Incas, you can continue with our Vilcabamba Espiritu Pampa Trek.
