Choquequirao to Machu Picchu

This expedition will take you to two of the major archaeological sites in the Cusco-area and Peru: Choquequirao and Machu Picchu. The legends and knowledge of Machu Picchu are already all over the world. Since the re-discovery of Machu Picchu by Hiram Bingham in July 1911, the ruin has been a topic of discussions and research about the Incas and finally in 1981 the Peruvian government established “The Historical Sanctuary of Machu Picchu”, which also was honored by UNESCO as World Heritage in 1983. As much one can find of writings and histories about Machu Picchu, the little one can find about the latter, but not less interesting ruin complex of Choquequirao. The archaeological site of Choquequirao is part of the complex system of Andean towns in Vilcabamba Valley. In the time of the Incas it was united and in communication with Machu Picchu by a complex network of trails. Choquequirao is situated in the spurs of the mountain range of Salcantay at 3,035 m surrounded by the snow capped Apus of Yanama, Ampay, Choquetacarpo, Pumasillo and Panta. On the right side of the Apurimac river in the Santa Teresa district, province of the department of Cusco. Choquequirao is an Inca town formed by small sites spread out in rubblework that in its adjoining constructs a complex metropolis similar to those of the other regions placed on the crest of the hill by the same name- Choquequirao
