DAY 01: CUSCO – CACHORA – ROSALINA (7 – 8 hours walk approx.)
Travel distance: 11 kilometers (6.8 miles).
5:00 AM Our guide will pick you up from your hotel to go to Cachora located at 3,400 m.s., where we will stop to have breakfast (breakfast not included).
This last section of our journey through Andean landscapes to reach the Mirador de Capuliyoq (2,900 masl), from this viewpoint we can appreciate the distant Inca City of Choquequirao, as well as the breathtaking view of all the snow-capped mountains of the Vilcabamba mountain range. We will continue our tour descending until we reach our first stop in Chikiska (1800.msnm), where we will have our lunch, after our refreshing lunch we will continue the descending bed to the Rosalina Beach (1,500 masl), and then continue ascending to our camp in Santa Rosa Baja (2,100 masl) where we will have our dinner.
DAY 02: SANTA ROSA – MARAMPATA – CHOQUEQUIRAO – MARAMPATA (6 – 7 hours walk approx.)
Travel distance: 13 kilometers (8 miles)
After breakfast we will continue our adventure, this time ascending until reaching Santa Rosa (2,100 masl), after a short break, we will continue the trail until we reach Marampata (2,800 masl), there we will have our lunch to recover energies and continue until our second camp in Choquequirao (3,035 masl).
This second day of walking is considered to be the most difficult, since we will have to travel most of the way in an ascending way.
DAY 03: CHOQUEQUIRAO – CHIQUISKA. (5 – 6 hours of walking approx.)
Travel distance: 14 kilometers (8.6 miles)
Early after our breakfast, we will have our guided tour through Choquequirao, ancient Inca refuge.
After an extensive tour of the main sectors of this impressive Inca city, we will return to the town of Chiquiska, the site of our third camp. The route on this third day is lighter, since we will travel the same route from the previous day but this time back and in descending order.
DAY 4: CHIQUISKA – CACHORA – CUSCO. (5 – 6 hours of walking approx.)
This day we will start our tour very early, we will go back to Cachora, where we started our trek on the first day, and also there we will take our mobility to return to the City of Cusco. END OF SERVICE.
