Itinerary

DETAILED ITINERARY of Choquequirao Trek 5 Days

PRE-TREKKING TALK: 01 to 02 days before starting the trek to Choquequirao Trek 5 Days at 05:30 pm at the hotel reception of the group of trekkers, our adventure guide provides general information about the Choquequirao trek of 05 days 04 nights specifying each day. All questions are welcome to be prepared for our expedition through the southern Andes of Peru within the Cusco region.

Day 01: CUSCO – CAPULIYOC TO SANTA ROSA

Our Choquequirao Trek 5 Days expedition begins with the land trip at 05:30 am, leaving the city of Cusco and heading northwest. We cross the Anta plateau, descend towards the Limatambo valley, cross the CUNYAC bridge, and then go back up the mountain; in the sector of the branch of the town of Cachora, we take the RAMAL entered towards the Cachora valley. The last leg of the trip is from Cachora to Capuliyoc “the trip lasts approximately 04 hours and 20 minutes”.

In Capuliyoc, our mules are waiting for us to load all the mountain equipment and start the adventure towards Choquequirao. At approximately 10 am, we begin our walk descending through the Apurimac canyon, already having spectacular panoramic views of the Andes Mountains with its eternal snow-capped peaks such as PADREYOC.

  • From Capuliyoc to the Apurímac River, the Playa Rosalina sector takes our trek around 04 hours and a half descent. WE RECOMMEND YES OR YES, A PAIR OF CANES WITH EXCELLENT HIKING SHOES WITH ANKLE SUPPORT.
  • From PLAYA ROSALINA, the sector of the Apurimac River towards SANTA ROSA. Our trek up the mountain takes approximately 02 hours of walking “perhaps the night will reach us, so we recommend bringing your flashlight in your day backpack; to conquer the first camp without problems.”

Day 02: SANTA ROSA – INC OF CHOQUEQUIRAO

Today we start our trek at 08:00 am to rest excellently, super well the first night after the first day of hiking.

The walk takes about 03 hours to reach the community of Marampata. Every time we ascend the mountain, the vegetation turns green due to the presence of the cloud forest, finding bamboos, ferns, begonias, etc. The good thing about this first path is in a natural shade to cover us from the sun. We find incredible views of the Apurimac canyon due to the conjugation of spectacular combinations of vegetation.

From MARAMPATA to the INC camp, it takes approximately 02 hours; the trail is undulating, BUT it has other amazing views of the Apurimac River and the canyon, with the first views of Choquequirao. Ideal for taking multiple panoramic photos in all their glory. The INC camp is located near and on the slopes of the Choquequirao ruins.

The best of all is to descend behind the Choquequirao mountain for 20 minutes to reach the LLAMAS sector “you can see a set of decorative llamas embodied in the Inca walls, which is why it has the name LLAMACHAYOC.”
  • In the afternoon, we EXPLORE the sector below Choquequirao where the waterfalls, the house of the priests, the Incas, the agricultural terraces, and the support system of the mountain are.
