Group Tour

This trek is perfect for anyone looking for dramatic landscapes while avoiding the crowds of other popular hikes. You’ll plunge across the beautiful valleys of the Apurimac Canyon and pass through the Apurimac River and a few communities. Then you’ll head up the (steep) other side until you get to Choquequirao- all the while...

This trek is one of the most difficult treks in Peru as it has yet to be completely excavated so it is largely grown over by lush jungle and is only accessible by foot. The impressive views are worth the trek!
