DESCRIPTION:

Choquequirao is an archaeological site as amazing as Machu Picchu, this alternative Inca Trail show you a different and unique experience in Peru.
Choquequirao is the second best option of litic building inside Peruvian territory.
An imposing place that was built around 1535 after the conquered of Cusco by the Spaniards. The last Inca called “Manco Inca” decided to burned the city of Cusco and after it, he escaped to the last Inca refuge where lived 4 generations of Inca kings until the capture of the last Inca “Túpac Amaru l” in 1572 by the viceroy Toledo. Since 1572 Choquequirao was abandoned systematically, at the mercy of the nature until that the “Patronato de arquelogía” of Cusco decided to convert it into a touristic destination.
