Trekking to Choquequirao

Choquequirao (Southern Quechua: Chuqi K'iraw, "Cradle of Gold" or Choqek'iraw) is a ruined Inca city in south Peru, similar in structure and architecture to Machu Picchu. The ruins are buildings and terraces at levels above and below Sunch'u Pata, the truncated hill top. The hilltop was anciently leveled and ringed with stones to create a 30x50 platform.

Choquequirao (3,050 m) is in the spurs of the Salkantay Mountain Range in the Province La Convención in the Cusco region above the valley of river Río Apurímac. The complex is 1,800 hectares, of which 30–40% is excavated.

The site is reached by a two-day hike from outside Cusco.
