About this trip

Introduction

Choquequirao Machu Picchu Trek 7 Days

This Choquequirao Archaeological Complex is very interesting and one of the most popular hikes in the Cusco area. This trail is located in the Salkantay Mountain range, at more than 3030m surrounded by the Apus of Yamana, Ampay, Chokecarpu, umasiyo and Panta, on the left bank of the Apurimac River. At the time of the Incas, it was linked and communicated with Machu Picchu by a complex network of roads.

The reasons are many: The fantastic nature with Valleys, Snow-capped Mountains and great variety of plants, birds and animals. Choquequiraw is considered “The last refuge of the Inca Empire”. Visitors can see a complex hydraulic system, probably for domestic, ceremonial and agricultural use. Its geographical location in reference to other complexes of the same period would tend to indicate that its function was that of an Inca enclave towards the valleys of the Apurimac River.

Choquequirao comes from the meaning chuqui which means “gold” and from the word k’iraw which means “cradle,” that is, “Cradle of gold”. It is known as the “Sacred Sister” of Machu Picchu, because it is so important for its architecture and design used in its construction.
