Coquequirao 14 days / 13 nights
This is an
off-the-beaten track trekking adventure in the remote
Cordillera Vilcabamba range culminating in a visit to
the Machu Picchu ruins.
Choquequirao, the “Cradle of Gold”, is an amazingly
preserved Inca outpost, comparable in size to Machu
Picchu and dramatically located on a promontory nearly
1,700m above the roaring Apurimac river.
It is only
accessible by a tough trek. Our 8-day mule supported
hike to Choquequirao and beyond takes in high passes,
perfectly preserved Inca Trails and awesome Andean peaks,
ending with a spectacular and rarely seen view of Machu
Picchu and a full guided tour of these incredible ruins.
This is a
long, spectacular and strenuous hike crossing the entire
Vilcabamba mountain range from the Apurimac to the
Urubamba watershed. It is approximately 100Km long with
almost 6,000m of both ascent and descent with passes up
to 4,500m and river crossings as low as 1450m.
your chance to be amongst one of the few adventurers to
visit this incredible site and complete this rewarding
