``The Sacred Sister of Machu Picchu - Choquequirao Cusco``. ``Discover in 4 days, the secret city of Inca, Cuna de Oro``

Come with us and discover the ancient Inca citadel of Choquequirao – Cusco, known as “holy sister of Machu Picchu”.

The Choquequirao Inca city lies desolate at the top of the Apurimac Canyon, the deepest in America. To get here, you must be a truly adventure lover since we won´t find any modern transport like trains.

The hike demands of ups and downs, but our effort is rewarded by the stunning views that offers the Canon; snow-capped majestic mountains and frightening cliffs, and the end, on arrival awaits in silence the mysterious Inca citadel “Cradle of gold”.
