This Peru tour will lead you to the ruins of Choquequirao, situated in the Sacred Valley Peru at 3,085 meters above sea level, within the foothills of Mount Salkantay ("wild" in Quechua, 6,271 meters). Machu Picchu’s little sister has similar significance built along similar lines, served the same religious, political and agricultural functions, but is harder to reach and, for the time being, still sufficiently free of tourists for a visitor to imagine, without much effort, the priests and builders, the supplicants and courtiers roaming its paths and plaza. Its name comes from the Aymara "chuqi (gold)", and the Quechua "K'iraw (cradle)", meaning "cradle of gold". Located on an almost unreachable hilltop, it became - for over 40 years - the last refuge and stronghold of resistance of the Incas of Vilacamba.  Chaskiventura - Peru Travel Agency will show you a spectacular and distant site, lonely and forgotten. These Peru holidays will not only lift the veil on the archeological and historical value of the complex which is complemented by the beauty of its surroundings, but also offer you a four-day Peru trek to reach it with breathtaking landscapes which have geographic features and biodiversity characteristics of the Upper Amazon.
