The intricacy of these majestic ruins suggests that Choquequirao was once of high importance to the Inca empire. Before a bridge was constructed over the Apurimac River, the site was remote and mostly inaccessible. Luckily for explorers this bridge can now connect them to this once hidden ancient city.

Along the way, you will stop at Tarawasi, a site where Inca ceremonies and celebrations to Mother Earth were conducted. From there you leave Tarawasi and continue to Saywite. Here you find the famous Inca rock that was believed to be a construction plan for the Tahuantinsuyo Empire (Inca Empire). At this rock you will see carvings of animals representing the main deities. From Saywite you continue hiking for half an hour to Cachora (2,800 m/9,184 ft) where you will enjoy a nice lunch. After lunch, you begin a two and a half hour hike towards Abra Capuliyoc (2,750 m/9,020 ft). Here are beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and the Apurimac River Canyon. Then, you continue descending for two hours towards Chiquisca, where you will eat dinner and spend the night.

    You leave Chiquisca around 6am to hike for an hour to Rosalina Beach. You then cross the Apurimac River and start hiking towards Santa Rosa. This climb is a series of switchbacks up a steep slope and will take approximately two hours. In Santa Rosa you have a break for 90 minutes. Afterwards you hike for two and a half hours until you reach the lunch spot in Marampata. From here, you walk another two hours until you reach the archaeological complex of Choquequirao (3,103 m/10,178 ft) where you will enjoy some free time to explore the terraces and Inca monuments. When the sun is setting, there is a great opportunity to enjoy the magnificent view over the canyon, where condors often are spotted.
