Choquequirao trek Peru, independently

Stingy Nomads:

Choquequirao is quite big, you need at least one full day to explore it.

… buildings with steep roofs, terraces, massive walls.

… views to the valley and canyon from the ruins are stunning, specially at the sunset.

What we really liked about Choquequirao is its quietness, in all day we saw 6 people, you have ruins all to yourself. Unfortunately Peruvian government is planning to build a cable car all the way to the ruins, it’ll bring a lot of money for the region which is good, but at the same time will destroy unique atmosphere. …

  1. Hi, For a different perspective and a different time of year, I wrote a series of posts for the Choquequirao hike done in September of 2015.

    September is the end of high season, warmer and sees more tourists. Still there are much fewer than at more popular sights such as Machu Picchu. I do agree that this trail is easy to follow and can be done on your own. You can also hire a mule and guy to tend it in Cachora. I’m very glad we did, especially when climbing in the heat back to Capuliyoc.
