Machu Picchu tour 3 days takes you to visit the Sacred Valley of the Incas and see the sunrise over Machu Picchu.  Machu Picchu was built at the height of the Inca Empire which dominated western South America in the 15th and 16th centuries. It was abandoned as estimated 100 years after its construction, probably around the time when the Spaniards began their conquest of the mighty pre-Columbian civilization in the 1530s.

MACHU PICCHU is located in a very special place made up of mountains, glaciers, rivers, creeks, cascades, springs and exuberant flora & fauna. machu-picchuAll these elements played a role of great importance inside the Andean cosmovision and the reason why was built from this sanctuary was to visualize big “Apus”, or mountain protectors, such as “Salcantay” or “Salkantay” Mountain, “Willkaweqhe” or Veronica Mountain , “Pumasillu” Mountain, and others.

The “Waynapicchu” mountain, for example, possesses on its summit and hill important tructures. From its summit, one can observe big “Apus” like Salkantay, Veronica, Pumasillo, and the deep Urubamba canyon where the big river, “Willcamayu” or Urubamba, runs.  Mountain to the south was used for very important astronomical-religious purposes too. This mountain was considered special since it provided the water to the city. The Incas found two natural springs behind the top of this mountain. Even today, these two springs provide water to the tourist hotel of MACHU PICCHU. Therefore, this city had been planned with a great deal of anticipation and meticulous mathematical study.

INCA TRAIL PACKAGES

“Choquequirao Trek” is fascinating combination of beauty and contrasts in scenery, wildlife and cultures; this trek is perfect for those looking to experience the region’s archaeological and cultural treasures in a short amount of time, this adventure includes a trek along the Inca Trail to the last refuge of the Incas, situated in the “Vilcanota” mountain range near Machu Picchu. The route descends from the town of “Cachora” to the Apurimac River and ascends to the Inca ruins of “Choquequirao” from the south-eastern side of the ruins, along the border of the Urubamba canyon. The topography of the route allows a relaxing trekking and great camping places; the hikers generally do not suffer from altitude sickness because the altitude is lower than the city of Cusco.

Overview

Choquequirao

“Choquequirao Trek” was opened recently for visitors; it is a spectacular 60km trek through the Peruvian Andes. Choquequirao is an Inca site located in the stunning landscape of the Vilcabamba mountain range over the Apurimac Canyon; Choquequirao probably was visited by Mr. Hiram Bingham in 1910 after this he discovered Machu Picchu in 1911. This route offers us a formidable trek across diverse ecosystems. Choquequirao is considered as the other Machu Picchu which means “Golden Cradle” in Quechua “Inca language”, although this is probably not its original name. It is another “Lost City of the Incas” rediscovered officially later in the 20th century, it’s surrounded by towering Salkantay and Humantay snowcapped peaks.
Choquequirao is a Quechua word that means “Cradle of Gold” is a ruined Inca city in south Peru, similar in structure and architecture to Machu Picchu. It is located on the Vilcanota mountain range. The ruins are buildings and terraces at levels above and below Sunch’u Pata, the truncated hill top. The hilltop was anciently leveled and ringed with stones to create a 30 by 50m platform. Choquequirao is located in the heavens of the Americas at 3,050 masl and is bordered by Apurimac and Urubamba rivers; the site was built during the kingdom of Pachacuti (Tupac Inca Yupanky) (1471-1493) and Huay Capac (1493-1527). It was one of the last bastions of resistance and refuge of the Incas.
