The trek offers beautiful views of Padreyoc mountain, its deep canyon and the river Apurímac. Beyond this point, we will descend for about 3 hours towards Chiquisca, where we will spend the evening.

Day 2: Chiquisca – Playa – Marampata – Choquequirao

This will be one of the more difficult days of hiking. Following breakfast, we will descend to playa Rosalina and venture back uphill to pass Santa Rosa onto Marampata. We will stop here for lunch and enjoy the beautiful view of the landscape around the ruins. Once our bellies are full, we will continue the trek for about 2 hours until we reach the ruins of Choquequirao. Our camping site is located 25 minutes from this settlement. (B,L,D)

Day 3: Choquequirao – San Ignacio – Carmen

We begin our day early morning (06.00), where we will visit the archaeological site of Choquequirao to see the sun rising upon its temples, palaces and agricultural terraces. As the sun lifts past the horizon, we will descend 2 ½ hours to the Apurímac canyon’s deepest section called San Ignacio to have lunch. Once we have enjoyed our meal, we will ascend to our camping site in the beautiful gardens of Carmen. (B,L,D)
