What to expect
Day 1: You will leave the Inca capital of Cusco at 4 a.m. an have a 5-hour drive northwest across the Anta Plateau to the town of Chachora, the starting point of the hike. Enjoy great views of the glacial mountains of Salkantay, Humantay, Pitusiray, Chicon, and Veronica from the windows of your private vehicle, as well as fabulous views of villages, valleys, and frost-topped mountains. Day 2: This is the most difficult of the five days. After an early breakfast, climb a steep path. After about five hours of trekking you reach Raqaypata, next to the Chunchullomayo River, where you stop for a late lunch and a greatly merited break. The afternoon trek is not as steep as the morning, and along the way we see an array of orchids, wild flowers, and birds. After hiking two hours more, you reach the archaeological site of Choquequirao in time to appreciate the sunset and maybe see condors flying by. We set up camp just outside the ruins in the cloud forest. Day 3: Today is devoted to investigating the marvellous ruins of Choquequirao, considered the other Machu Picchu where the last Inca Tupac Amaru was raised among Inca preistesses. The guide will tell you all about its history and the value of this site, and then you will have free time to explore the many areas of the complex. Late in the afternoon, start the return hike and camp the night at Raqaypata. Day 4: After breakfast, continue the return hike with a steep plunge toward the Apurimac River where you stop for lunch. In the afternoon, ascend for four hours to the final campsite at Coca Masana. Day 5: On the last day of hiking, you will observe the canyon that forms the Apurimac River. You will then take a new path that traverses the throat of the canyon with an extraordinary vista of Wayna Qalli towards the canyon, thought of as the most impressive in South America. Reach Cachora with a return bus to Cusco.

April is the best time to visit!
Apr 2019 • Couples
My husband and I decided to do this trek during the shoulder season ( late April) and we were so happy we did. The weather was perfect! The lows in the evening were in the 50s and highs during the day was 60s/70s. This set up the perfect condition for hiking. Our tour guide Avlina was a great coordinator. She met with us the day before our trek began to make sure we were all set with supplies and didn't overpack. Unfortunately we did pack too much but Avlina helped us by having the mules carry our hiking backpacks. The trek of itself was very intense but well worth it. We had the site to ourselves for 1 hour which was wonderful. The team Avlina had of cook and porter and driver were very professional. The meals were filling. Overall, we had a wonderful time.
