"Better than Inka Trail ? Mieux que l'Inka Trail ?" Choquequirao by Maillekeul

Choquequirao Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 56 photos

All I can say is that, as I haven't been on the Inka Trail to Machu Picchu, I can't compare. But the experience to Choquequirao was a fabulous one, that I will keep in my memory forever : 30 kilometers with my swedish friend Thomas, Armando, the limping muleman, and our slow-paced guide at the end of which we enjoyed this wonderful site, and even enjoyed 4 hours of sunshine.... We were only 5 tourists on the site. After that, 30 more kilometers and a bigger self-esteem made us the one-day kings of Choquequirao...

Je n'ai pas fait le Trek de l'Inca et je ne peux donc pas comparer. Mais, Choquequirao restera a jamais l'une de mes plus belles marches et de mes plus belles experiences : 30 kilometres pour y aller, en presence de Thomas le Suedois, Armando, l'arriero boiteux et notre guide bien trop lent. Puis, la decouverte du site et 4 heures de temps ensoleille et de vues degagees a couper le souffle. Nous n'etions que 5 touristes la-haut. Aussi, apres 30 kilometres pour revenir et avec de l'orgueil, on s'est sentis les rois d'un jour... ceux de Choquequirao...

    now it's not allowed to camp on the terraces, but there is a rustic camp near, and a really nice hotel by the way of Huanipaca.
