    Description
    This five-day trek is perfect if you're looking for an adventure that's as challenging as it is rewarding. Explore the ruins of Choquequirao, the lost city that's even more remote than nearby Machu Picchu. Because of its difficult-to-reach location, the site sees relatively few visitors. This means youll get to experience Incan history in near-solitude, surrounded by nothing but ancient architecture and spanning forests. These spectacular views of the Andes are all along the trek to Choquequirao, a journey filled with lush wildlife and breathtaking vistas you won't soon forget.

    Day 2Playa RosalindaDay 2 Cusco/Playa Rosalinda (1B, 1L, 1D)
    The lost city of Choquequirao was discovered hundreds of years ago, but it still feels as though you may be the first to discover it. Encroaching jungle still covers some of the stonework as only roughly 40 percent of these ruins have been excavated. The trek to this remote Incan city although challenging, is well worth the effort. Winding trails take you through the Apurimac River canyon with circling condors up above and views of the snow-capped Salkantay mountains making a breathtaking backdrop. Take plenty of time to explore and soak it in for yourself with two included visits to Choquequirao. Included Activities: Choquequirao Trek - Day 1 Transport: Private Vehicle (5.00 hour(s))

In the afternoon, take a guided tour of the ruins and marvel at your historical surroundings. Included Activities: Choquequirao Trek - Day 2 Choquequirao Main Square Guided Tour
    Day 4ChiquiscaDay 4 Choquequirao/Chiquisca (1B, 1L, 1D)
