Choquequirao “the Last Refuge of the Incas” sister of Machu Picchu: Perched on a precipitous ridge 5000 feet above the roaring Rio Apurimac and ringed by the snow-capped Vilcabamba Mountains, the Choquequirao citadel is a true “lost city of the Incas.” With its absolutely dazzling location, Choquequirao is often compared to Machu Picchu, yet this hidden ancient city has no road access, few visitors, and a haunting ambiance unmatched at other Inca sites. Our spectacular and challenging trek brings us to the breathtaking ruins of Choquequirao, with its mysterious plazas and shrines, and onward across the entire Vilcabamba range through deep-cut canyons and over high passes.
Breakfast at the hotel; pick you up from the Hotel at 9:00am and transfer direction to the Sacred Valley; we start across the fertile plain of Chinchero rich with grain, potatoes & beans. Start walking in the little town of Maras; we arrive at the circular Inca ruins of Moray. In nearby Moray you find “the Inca laboratory” then we drop down into the Sacred Valley of the Incas to the salt pans of Salineras. Here more than 5000 terraces are still in production and many families of Maras bring their salt to the market of Urubamba on mules. These salt-pans were mentioned in conquering Spanish’s chronicles. We finally meet our vehicle again beside the Urubamba River for the drive back to Cusco. Overnight at Cusco Hotel
