Choquequirao is the lesser known, but just as magical as the iconic Machu Picchu. Located Southeast of Cusco, between the Apurimac River and Vilcabamba mountain range near the snowy Salkantay peaks, with a height of 6271 meters (20,575 ft).
The breathtaking hike combines the different levels of the Peruvian highlands, and showcases a variety of wild flora and fauna. The route taken allows us the potential to see flourishing and endangered species alike, including the Andean condor, Puma and spectacled bear.
This area served as a refuge and natural fortress for the Inca resistance movement of the sixteenth century.
