An adventure to the lost city, the sister city of Machupicchu, with less influx due to privileged access only for those who can overcome the mental and physical challenge of 4 days of walking.
Day 1: Cusco - Cachora - Playa Rosalina - Santa Rosa.
We leave Cusco very early towards Cachora (Breakfast) and continue to Punta Carretera where we meet the rest of the Peru Leisure Travel team, the muleteers, cooks and horses. From this point we start our walk through a beautiful Andean landscape and we will have a beautiful view of the Padreyoc, Wayna Cachora, the Apurímac valley, to Santa Rosa where we will set up our first camp.

Always with a beautiful view of the Apurimac canyon, we will cross small hamlets such as Santa Rosa Alta and Huchuerta, to Marampata, where we have lunch and prepare to visit the Inca citadel of Choquequirao in the afternoon. Here we will have a guided tour of the most important enclosures, such as the main esplanade, the Usno, the Workshops and the Sector of the platforms that are embedded in stone in the shape of Llamas. After that, we return to Marampata for dinner and spend the night in camp.
