Choquequirao Trekking Tour 4 days

The ruins of Choquekiraw are larger than Machu Picchu, but they are actually a hidden gem that is not easily accessible to visitors. The hike to the archaeological site of Choquequirao is an unparalleled experience that leaves all hikers with unforgettable memories. The majesty of the landscapes that can be appreciated during the trek is amazing, the biodiversity of flora and fauna that can be admired along the route is unique. The remoteness of the ruins and their beauty make Choquequirao a mysterious and charming tourist destination that, unlike Machu Picchu, has not yet been discovered by the great tourist masses.
