CUSCO – SAN PEDRO DE CACHORA – CHIQUISCA   

Very early, even before dawn, we bound for the town of San Pedro de Cachora 2850 meters, where we arrive after four hours away. After inspecting all the equipment, both needed for camping and animals (mules and horses) to be used on the expedition, we will start walking a distance of approximately 17.00 km, which we will do in about six (6) hours of walking.
Starting the tour we will appreciate the majestic snowcapped Padreyoc located at 5.482 meters, and will not fail to marvel at the natural beauty of the place, always taking the opportunity to have brief contact with some residents in the vicinity. After 2 hours of flat road we will arrive to the lookout of Capuliyoc 2900 meters, from where we will see the entire route of the Apurimac Canyon and location of the archaeological complex of Choquequirao, along with the full path to perform. There we will take a short break, during which passengers will be able to take pictures and see some pre-Inca archaeological remains. At this point it is likely that we see a majestic condor flight. We continue our journey down for about 3 hours to Chiquisca 1830 meters, a small oasis, where we will camp.( L,D )

CHIQUISCA – CHOQUEQUIRAO 

After breakfast we begin our descent, which will take about 45 minutes and will allow us to see great views of the Apurimac Canyon rising up to 1500 meters, passing through the modern hanging bridge over the Apurimac River. From there we will take a path of moderate climb for about 3 hours to Marampata (2900 meters above sea level), where we will have lunch and some time to take a good rest. We will continue our journey to the beautiful archaeological site of Choquequirao (3035 meters above sea level), for 1 hour 20 minutes, following a flat road with ups and downs. Next, we will make our first major visit of this amazing site, and enjoy the beautiful sunset in this mysterious place. With a little luck we may see an occasional condor in all its glory by firing the “sun god”. Then we will drive to Raqaypata, located at 2850 meters, our campsite, where we expect a delicious dinner and a welcome and refreshing break (B, L, D)

After a delicious breakfast we will begin the return. On the way we will have the opportunity to appreciate the scenery again where for some reason we did not fully appreciate before. We will gradually be descending to the shores of the Rio Apurimac, where we stop for lunch and take a good rest. If you like, the traveler can take a bath on the banks of the river, wonderful experience that many do not let pass. Then, we will continue ascending to our last camp in Cocamasana, located 2330 meters above sea level, where we will enjoy a beautiful view of the Apurimac River tour and sunset, which is a spectacle that nature gives us.

COCAMASANA – CACHORA – CUSCO 

Early in the morning we will get everything ready to start the return to Cachora. This day will start early to avoid the intense sun; however, we should always take precautions to protect our skin. After rising for about 2 hours we will reach the Capuliyoc pass (2900 meters above sea level). During the trip, we will see for the last time part of the archaeological complex of Choquequirao and the road already made. You will also see the majestic snowcapped Padreyoc, which adorns the canyon of the Apurimac and the variety of fauna and flora that offers the different ecological zones.
Finally, we will arrive to San Pedro de Cachora, where we will share our last lunch and then take a relaxing break. At this point we will say goodbye to the carriers and we will continue our return by private bus to Cusco. (B, L)
