Tour Summary

The Choquequiraw circuit is via a winding road built recently by the Peruvian government, the road to Choquequirao from the second day of the tour is regularly demanding, but is rewarded by the captivating scenic beauty and a warm climate belonging to the ecological jungle floor, and above all the charming archaeological park located on a rugged topography, which in the heyday of the Incas was undoubtedly a most important place in political and administrative sense, probably less religious category in front of Machu Picchu..

Recomendation:

It is necessary the acclimatization in Cusco, one or two days before starting the journey. For a good acclimatization is necessary to rest as much as possible, eat little, drink plenty of fluids; especially coca tea, that has healing and digestive properties. A proper acclimatization, avoid being affected by the “soroche” or altitude sickness, which can cause numerous health discomfort.
