Choquequirao means “Cradle of Gold” in Quechua “Inca´s language”, although this is probably not its original name. It is another “Lost City of the Incas” rediscovered but officially late in 20th century. Located high on a ridge spur almost 1750mts above the raging glacier-fed Apurimac River and surrounded by towering Salkantay and Humantay snow-capped peaks.
This is an awesome trek to appreciate beautiful landscapes and mountains, remotes old villages held in the past century by hacendados, very special Inca town built on top of the hills by the Chachapoyas mitimaes to honor the great Pachacutec, but overall is not a crowded as other destination for trekkers.
