The Inca Trail is Peru's best known hike, it combines a good mix of Inca ruins, mountain scenery, lush cloud-forest and rich subtropical jungle. More than 250 species of orchids have been counted in the Machu Picchu Historic Sanctuary. There are also numerous birds such as hummingbirds, waterfowl and the majestic Andean Condor to spot in the beautiful scenery of Machu Picchu.

The Inca Trail is in total 45 kilometers and starts at Qoriwayrachina and ends in Machu Picchu. The trek is rated as moderate and therefor any reasonably fit person should be able to cover the route. Nevertheless the trek is fairly challenging and altitudes of 4200m are reached, so make sure that you are well acclimatized.

Choquequirao means "cradle of gold" in Quechua, although probably not the original Inca name. It is another "lost city of the Incas," situated on a ridge, nearly 1750m above the raging Apurimac River, fed by the glaciers of the surrounding snow-capped mountain peaks.
The abundance of many double jamb doorways and niches indicates that the place had a high status.
The ruins were first visited and described for the Western world by a French explorer in the 18th century. Hiram Bingham visited the site in 1910. This was his first experience with "lost cities" before his discovery of Machu Picchu in 1911. The distance and inaccessibility have discouraged visitors until recently, because COPESCO built a footbridge over the Apurimac River just below the ruins. Nowadays the ruins are still little visited.

Duration: 5 days / 4 nights
Destinations: Cusco, Choquequirao
