Choquequirao Trekking 4 Days / 3 Nights


We leave Cusco at 6.00 am in our private transport and drive towards Cachora, an Andean community located 4-5h from Cusco at 2800m/9184ft, the starting point of the trek where we meet our horsemen and horses. We start our hike climbing for two and a half hours towards the Abra Capuliyoc at 2750m/9020ft, where may we enjoy beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and the Apurimac River Canyon. We then continue descending for two more hours towards Chiquisca, where we set our camp and spend the night. Meals  L, D

We leave Chiquisca as early as 6.00am to go down to Rosalina Beach, which will take about one hour. We then cross the Apurimac River and start climbing towards Santa Rosa, zigzagging up a steep slope. This climb will take an approximated 2h, and it is important that we leave early so that the heat does not make it more difficult than it has to be. In Santa Rosa, we make a half an hour break, where those who wish may try Cambray, a local sugar cane extract. Afterwards, we continue our hike slowly climbing for two and a half hours until we reach our lunch spot in Marampata. From here we walk another two hours until we reach the archaeological complex of Choquequirao, located at 3103m/10178ft, where we will set up camp and enjoy some free time to explore the terraces and buildings. When the sun starts to set, you might want to sit and contemplate the canyon, where condors are sometimes spotted. Meals B, L, D

This morning we enjoy a complete guided tour of the Choquequirao complex: we will visit the high parts (Hanan), and the lower parts (Urin), and some areas that are still covered in wild foliage and ready to be restored into the way it was when the Incas owned it. After the tour, we start our walk back towards Santa Rosa, where we have lunch. We then continue descending for another 2 hours until we reach Rosalina Beach at 1450m/4756ft, where we might have time to take a refreshing dip in the waters of the Apurimac River. We camp and diner here. Meals B, L, D

We leave camp after breakfast to start the two to three hour climb to Chiquisca, to then make our way back to the Abra Capuliyoc, close to which we have our lunch. Where a private transport will be waiting to take us back to Cusco. Estimated arrival time around 4.00pm. Meals : B, L

Hiking pants and T-shirts are recommended during the day, eventually complemented by sweaters, fleeces and jackets in the evening. We recommend convertible hiking pants and / or shorts as some parts of the route run at low altitude and warm weather. It is also very convenient to have light raingear available in the daypack (rain poncho or jacket and/or rain pants) as the weather changes easily and rains can suddenly occur. At night, warm clothing is required along the route.

Cusco’s climate is divided into two differentiated seasons: the rainy season, from November to April (the heaviest rainfalls occurring usually between January – March); and the dry season, from May to October. The dry season is colder, so temperatures can drop to below 0 degrees at night.

Terra Quechua -- Peru guide services Machu Picchu. Sacred Valley, Cusco Terra Quechua is a great company and we recommend them highly. They are a local Peruvian company and offer great services in Cusco, Sacred Valley & Machu Picchu. Edwin was extremely responsive via email and allowed us to fully customize our experience. We are a family of 6 and did the one day hike to Machu Picchu from the train stop at KM 104. Some people refer to this as the 2 day Inca Trail hike, but that is a reference to one day of hiking on the trail followed by a second day at Machu Picchu. We made all of our own train and hotel arrangements and Edwin did all of the work to source our hiking guide, permits, trail lunch etc. Our guide Sam was amazing. We did this hike with kids aged 10, 16, 19 & 19. We were very worried that our 10 year old would not be able to complete the hike. It is a challenging hike but you can do it with kids this age if you have a great guide like Sam from Terra Quechua. The entire family agreed that the hike was the best part of our trip (7 nights in Galapagos and 5 nights in Peru). Sam was a big part of making the day special. Sam was also our guide for a day in Cusco and that was an exceptional experience. He is extremely knowledgeable, personable and spoke perfect English. The kids loved him too. We also used another guide from Terra Quechua, Roger, to tour us around sites in Sacred Valley. He too was outstanding. We highly recommend Terra Quechua for anyone looking for guides, hikes or other adventures in Peru. Edwin and his team are professional, flexible, very reasonably priced and provide a first class experience. If you are thinking of doing the one day hike to Machu Picchu from KM104 but you aren't sure if you can do it, you should definitely do it. You will be glad you did.

Experiencia increible Increible la experiencia con los chicos de terra quechua, no hay mas que agradecerles, todo super comodo. Personalmente viajamos con mi pareja y salió todo 10 puntos super amigables todos y fue un viaje super relajado, pero lleno de aventura.
Good service, quality meals, good lodge, patient guide, I recommend this company 100%. I want to start by thanking immensely all the members of this great company, especially Edwin who was so attentive to us, he helped us in everything every time we wrote to him, My family of 5 people, we spent 6 days / 5 nights incredible in the Manu National Reserve. We wish we could have stayed longer, but that's all time allowed, but we still love the experience. The jungle was just magical, we didn't expect to eat so well in the jungle! My family and I are outdoorsy people and even though we were in the middle of the jungle, we still found the accommodations comfortable but rustic, it was especially beautiful. Our guide Jhoel was great - we saw monkeys, spiders, birds and even a fresh jaguar footprint! I highly recommend Terra Quechua Peru to those people who are looking to do tours in the Manu National Reserve, you could not be in better hands.

Un recorrido inolvidable por el camino del Inca Tuvimos una experiencia increíble en el camino del Inca. Nosotros éramos siete, cuatro jóvenes y tres mujeres de más de cincuenta años. Los ritmos fueron muy distintos y fue clave en este sentido el acompañamiento del guía, de Bernabé. El supo organizar muy bien los tiempos, los horarios de salida y los ritmos individuales; además de poner muy buena energía en todo momento. Al regreso a los campamentos teníamos las carpas organizadas y la comida también. La comida abundante y sabrosa. El día de llegada a Machu Picchu tuvimos una recorrida informativa interesante y luego todo estuvo muy bien organizado en Aguas Calientes y nuestro regreso en tren. El paquete adquirido cumplió con todas nuestras expectativas.
Una loca aventura de 4d/3n en el Camino del Inca. Infinitamente agradecida En el mes de Julio 2023 realizamos la increíble aventura del Camino del Inca de 4 días. Fuimos un grupo de 7; 3 Mamás (+50, siii se puede💪) y nuestros hijos adolescentes. Terra Quechua cumplió con todo lo ofrecido, la comida excelente, las carpas, bolsas de dormir, la carpa comedor... todo muy organizado. El trabajo que realizan los porteadores cargando todo lo necesario para el campamento, es increíble. Sin Ellos no sería posible. Un inmenso gracias!!! Nuestro guia Bernabé, excelente. Hizo que los 45 km recorridos fueran posible. Gracias a Edwin, de Terra Quechua quien nos ayudó a organizar está loca Aventura 😍
Perú una aventura Es una agencia que cumple con los paquetes adquiridos y las reservas fueron fáciles de hacer, si bien presentamos unas dificultades en comunicación con un asesor, Edwin el gerente fue muy acertivo e intervino de forma oportuna, en cuanto a los planes todo estuvo perfecto en cuanto a la logística, transporte y boletos.

Increible experiencia haciendo Inka Jungle Una experiencia increible. Hicimos el tour Inka Jungle. Desde el primer minuto, Edwin nos inspiro mucha confianza, lo cual era algo muy importante para nosotros al estar visitando un nuevo lugar. El tour es perfecto porque haces un poco de todo - bajar en bicicleta desde mas de 4000m de altura, saliendo de entre las nubes, es una experiencia unica. - un rafting poco tradicional, que no se trata solo de remar, sino que podes visitar lugares magicos haciendo paradas rapidas con el bote en el rio. - zipline, para subir la adrenalina del viaje al maximo y disfrutar de paisajes increibles - caminatas largas, pero que lo valen por las vistas que hay y las charlas enriquecedoras con nuestro guia, Abel. Nos toco dormir la primer noche del tour en Casa del Mono. No hay palabras para describir esta posada en el medio de la montaña, con una paz increible. Justina, la dueña, te considera y te cocina como si fueses un miembro mas de su familia. No pueden perderse su jugo de Maracuya, una delicia. Abel, nuestro guia, merece un parrafo aparte. El es la cultura Inka (y peruana) en persona. Haber realizado el tour con el, nos permitio entender de que se trataba cada lugar en el que estabamos, y porque era especial. Se nota desde el primer momento que es una persona muy apasionada y que ama lo que hace y la cultura en la que vive. Sin el, el viaje no hubiera sido el mismo. Gracias infinitas Abel! Es un lugar al que hay que venir al menos una vez en la vida. Y si lo hacen, vengan con Terra Quechua, de la mano de Edwin y Abel. Gracias!!!
