CHOQUEQUIRAO CIRCUITDesde: $ 0.005D/4NBook Package
Day 1: Cusco - Cachora - Rosalina Beach
Travelers are picked up at their hotel and depart from Cusco at 6:00 am by private bus to the picturesque town of Cachora, a small town that is a "balcony" overlooking the imposing Vilcabamba mountain range. From the viewpoint of Capuliyoc, located on the banks of the Apurímac canyon, the expedition begins on foot. Almost at the bottom of the world, the tropical Playa Rosalina is the first camp. Dinner and overnight.
Day 2:Rosalina Beach - Maranpata - Choquequirao
After breakfast, we crossed the hanging bridge; there is no turning back, the long and steep ascent from the river level (1,500 meters), to the area of Marampata (2,900 masl) steals the last breath from the walker. We take it easy, sacrifice is enjoyed; On the way it is possible to recover strength in Santa Rosa, where Julian, the only resident of the camp, serves with rehydrating drinks and cookies (not included) to the hard-working visitors. In Marampata the lunch replenished the forces and the spirit remains intact, the traveler knows that it is close and after two hours of easy road is up to the camp of Choquequirao (2,870 masl). Phaqchayoc awaits us (the system of terraces or "pantry" dedicated to the cultivation of corn) and La Casa de la Caída de Agua (according to scholars, the home of the Inca provincial de Choquequirao). Returned to the camp, tired, dinner will be served and night will be spent. (Bathroom and cold shower available).
Day 3: Choquequirao all day
This is the cutest day. We are struck by how the vast majority of visitors take 4 days of walking (two to go and two to return) and only a few hours or maybe minutes to enjoy exploring the different sectors of Choquequirao. Understanding that the complex is organized scattered on both sides of the spur of the Apu Qorihuayrachina we will know how to dedicate the time it deserves and it is necessary to understand the integrity of its context. We will have all day to visit the best sectors of the Archaeological Park; the flames, the high and low parts, the Great Sidewalk, the Triumphal Wall of Sartiges. Our travelers will enjoy lunch near the Set, so as not to interrupt the visit and see -with a bit of luck- the majestic flight of the condor over the deep canyon of the Apurímac River. We return to the camp, where dinner will be served and the night will be spent. (Bathroom and cold shower available).
Day 4: Choquequirao - Hacienda San Ignacio - Villa Los Loros Lodge
After breakfast and knowing that the way back is shorter, the return is easier. We will be surprised by the novelty of the landscape; now we enjoy a different view because the mood (and the recovered muscles) are at maximum. The voice of the river always there, the imposing Apurimac Canyon seems to swallow the traveler. Finally, the San Ignacio Beach. "Black Whip", "Machuco", "Cayguash" or someone else awaits us. The return on their loins gives us the opportunity of a last great look at the landscape of which we are already a part. Riding allows an excellent way to photograph the friends with whom we came and the new friends that the trip gives us; The muleteers are a kind of superman and their way of life will penetrate deep into the traveler's memories. Next to the ruined walls of Hacienda San Ignacio, we rest and after lunch the horse ride takes us to Villa Los Loros Lodge. Looking back, we will know how far we have come. Dinner and overnight.
