Highlights of Choquequirao Trek Tour

Enjoy a 4-day hike to the Choquequirao ruins. Discovered by a French explorer in the 18th century, this place fascinated 19th century explorers and was also visited by Hiram Bingham prior to his discovery of Machu Picchu. 

Grand and mysterious, this abandoned city is similar to Machu Picchu. This is perfect if you want to visit a number of stunning Inca sites linked by a beautiful stone pathway built in the midst of the most incredible scenery in rising altitudes.
