Why you will love this Choquequirao Trek 4 Days by Lodge
BRIEFING: For our adventure through the APURIMAC CANYON AND THE ANDES of Choquequirao Trek 4 Days by Lodge, we offer an informative session to the group of explorers one day before starting the trek. The briefing takes place at the reception of the explorers’ hotel at 06:30 pm
At 06:00, we travel from the Cusco region to the Apurímac region until we reach the SAYWITE MONOLITH. We explore the Inca ruins of Sayhuite for an average of 30 minutes and then continue the land trip to CAPULIYOC – Cachora.
In Capuliyoc begins the three-and-a-half-hour walk to reach our first lodging in Chiquisca. We descend to the Apurimac canyon along a zigzag pedestrian path. We will find 03 spectacular viewpoints to rest and have magnificent views of different areas of scenic landscapes.
We leave at 05:30 in the direction of our second lodge located in Marampata. To get to Marampata, we have an approximate 01 hour descending through the zigzag path until we reach the riverbank. We cross the suspension bridge of PLAYA-ROSALINA to ascend by a crooked way until we reach Santa Rosa and Marampata, “approximately 05 hours of walking from the Apurimac River; to Marampata”.
We have lunch at the Marampata lodge; in the afternoon, we enjoy a spectacular sunset over the Andes with a view of the Apurimac canyon. If the sky is clear at night, we can see shooting stars and the Inca constellation with its milky way.

Today we have all day to explore the tourist area of Choquequirao. We bring our box lunch to each explorer provided by the Marampata lodge. From MARAMPATA, WE WALK for 01-hour and 40 minutes until we reach the top of the Choquequirao ruins. We have a guided tour of the ruins through the parts that essentially compose them and in the surroundings.
Today we have two extra hiking alternatives to continue exploring the spectacular Choquequirao archaeological park: Visit the Llamas sector or the Choquequirao waterfalls. It is essential to mention that Choquequirao is ten times larger than Machu Picchu; 30 percent of the Choquequirao ruins are vegetation-free. Therefore, Choquequirao is quite large and is also considered the divine partner of Machu Picchu.
Now the question of why is the divine couple? A surrounding river surrounds Choquequirao and Machu Picchu; they also have the same microclimate, elevation, mountain range, and endless similarities. Visit it you will be surprised. In the afternoon, we return to our LOCAL LODGING IN MARAMPATA to take a shower and have a nice last dinner in the community.
