Day 2: Cusco/Playa Rosalinda (1B, 1L, 1D)

The lost city of Choquequirao was discovered hundreds of years ago, but it still feels as though you may be the first to discover it. Encroaching jungle still covers some of the stonework as only roughly 40 percent of these ruins have been excavated. The trek to this remote Incan city although challenging, is well worth the effort. Winding trails take you through the Apurimac River canyon with circling condors up above and views of the snow-capped Salkantay mountains making a breathtaking backdrop. Take plenty of time to explore and soak it in for yourself with two included visits to Choquequirao.

Included Activities:
Choquequirao Trek - Day 1

Transport:
Private Vehicle (5.00 hour(s))

Day 3: Playa Rosalinda/Choquequirao (1B, 1L, 1D)
