Choquequirao Trek and Trips

ITINERARY Choquequirao

DAY 1: CUSCO - CACHORA - COCA MASANA - PLAYA ROSALINA

We will leave Cusco bright and early at 4:00 a.m. We will arrive at the town of Cachora at 7:30 a.m., where we will enjoy breakfast and meet up with our wranglers and arrange our equipment, mules, and horses. It is a 2-hour hike to Capuliyoc (2,915 meters/9,564 feet above sea level) where we can enjoy our first beautiful views of the Apurimac Valley stretching out below and the snow-capped peaks of Padrayoc and Wayna Cachora above. We will then descend toward Coca Masana (2,330 meters/7,644 feet above sea level) where the climate becomes noticeably warmer and the flora and fauna begin to change. Finally we arrive at Playa Rosalina (Rosalina Beach) at 1,550 meters/5,085 feet above seal level, right beside the raging Apurimac River, where we will set up camp and spend the night.

DAY 2: PLAYA ROSALINA - CHOQUEQUIRAO

Day 2 is the toughest of our 5-day hike. After an early breakfast, we will climb a steep trail. Our 5-hour hike will take us to Raqaypata beside the Chunchullumayo River, where we will enjoy a late lunch and a well-deserved rest. Along the way, we will have the chance to see orchids, wild flowers, and a number of bird species. From Raqaypata to Choquequirao (3,035 meters/9,957 feet above sea level) it is a 2-hour hike, and we will arrive at the Choquequirao archaeological site in time to enjoy the sunset and maybe even to see a condor flying nearby. Our campsite will be just outside the Choquequirao ruins.

DAY 5: CHIKISCA - CACHORA - CUSCO

Day 5 will be the last of our trek.  We will be able to appreciate the canyon of the Apurimac River as we follow a new trail that crosses the throat of the canyon. We will have an impressive view of the canyon from Wayna Qalli - considered to be one of the most spectacular in South America. We will ultimately arrive at Cachora and take our bus back to Cusco.
