Itinerary

Choquequirao to Machu Picchu Trekking

Day 1 - Cusco

Arrive at any time. Arrive early and spend some time exploring the city. Meet the group at the welcome meeting, check for the start time on the welcome note at the hotel.

Day 2 - Cusco

Enjoy a full-day guided tour of the Sacred Valley. Stop at the G Adventures-supported women's weaving co-op before visiting a local pottery making community. Break for lunch at the G Adventures-supported Parwa community restaurant in Huchuy Qosco. After lunch, opt to head out on a hike to the Ollantaytambo storehouses and look out over the ruins. Or, wander around the cobblestone streets and visit a local Chicheria (corn beer bar) before returning to Cusco for the night. Travel through the stunning Sacred Valley of the Incas, visiting a G Adventures-supported women's weaving co-op. Meet the women and learn about traditional weaving and dyeing. Opt to pick up some handmade souvenirs directly from the women who made them. Continue on to watch a pottery making demonstration in another small village. Have lunch at the G Adventures-supported Parwa community restaurant. Learn about the project and eat a delicious buffet-style lunch. Proceeds from the meal go directly back into the remote community.

Day 3 - Cusco/Chiquisca

Transfer to Cachora and embark on the hike to the lost Incan city of Choquequirao. Surrounded by breathtaking views of the Apurimac River and sweeping mountain scenery at every turn. Even though the lost city of Choquequirao was discovered hundreds of years ago, it still feels as though you may be the first to discover it. The trek to this remote Incan city although challenging, is well worth the effort. Winding trails take you through the Apurimac River canyon with views of the snow-capped Salkantay mountains making a breathtaking backdrop.

Day 4 - Chiquisca/Choquequirao

Continue trekking through the Apurimac River canyon on the way to Marampata. Keep your eyes open for condors as you make your way up into the cloud forest to Choquequirao, where you'll camp for the night.

Day 5 - Choquequirao/Pinchiunuyocc

Explore the ancient ruins of Choquequirao, comparable only to Machu Picchu in its beauty, grandeur and architectural accomplishment.

Day 6 - Pinchiunuyocc/Maizal campsite
