Choquequirao Trek Choquequirao: Peru's 'other Machu Picchu'
This magnificent Inca construction will not have spaces adequate for rooming as Machu Pichu shows, Choquequirao demonstrates the ability of the Inca in the eastern region of the Andes and building in its steep tropical forests. The adaptation is remarkable but in this case it is mainly a space for cultivation at different altitudes and surprising use of water resources. Some of the terraces are decorated with llamas on each one of them on their face looking towards the river. It is rarely mentioned but the explorer that discovered Machu Picchu visited these ruins earlier in 1911 but since then much of the facilities for visitors has been developed elsewhere, so having access to Choqueqirao requires 4 days at least most of it hiking. The first day takes us on a mostly paved road Curawasi and down to the Apurimac river, where camping equipment will be supplied. The following day we hike up to the ruins and camp by them. After a few hours visit we hike back down to the river where camping and meals will be supplied in order to reach Curawasi and Cusco on the fourth day. There has not been enough investigations as to the reasons for this splendid setting at the foot of snow mountains but the name points to a possible gold mine since choque is a variety of gold and Kirau or quirau means cradle possibly pointing toward the origin of gold..
