SPEAK WITH A TRAVEL SPECIALIST

Choquequirao means “Cradle of Gold” and is located above the bustling Apurimac River which is fueled from the glaciers. It is surrounded by towering snowcapped peaks and sits on a high ridge. Choquequirao is a secluded and seldomly visited ¨Lost City of the Incas¨.  The Inca archaeological site is considered, the sister of Machu Picchu, it is not well known and 3 times larger than Machu Picchu. It was one of the last safe havens for those Incas who continued to resist the Spanish after the conquest. The site was eventually abandoned and became covered by dense vegetation. On this unique trek, we will walk on Inca highways, hike through high Andean landscapes with breathtaking glaciers, descend into deep canyons where the condors fly and pass through diverse cloud forest ecosystems. You will also catch glimpses of native wildlife such as Andean Condors, various birds, native flora and fauna, orchids and much more. We are specialists in this incredible area and offer the most frequent departures with experienced guides. We are the only company who takes you to the hot springs of CONOC after the Choquequirao Trek, and explores the unique Inca ruins of Saywite. This incredible trek also takes you to the UNESCO World Heritage site and 7 New Wonder of the World: Machu Picchu!

DO I NEED MY ORIGINAL PASSPORT ON CHOQUEQUIRAO TREK TO MACHU PICCHU?

DEFINITELY! You have to bring your original passport and it is very important that it is the same passport number you sent to us to book your Choquequirao Trek to Machu Picchu, other entrances and reservations. They will check your passport when you enter the Inca Trail, Machu Picchu and to board the train.

WHAT IS THE WEATHER LIKE ON THE CHOQUEQUIRAO TREK TO MACHU PICCHU?

The weather on the Choquequirao trek exhibits the largest diversity among the trek. Temperature is proportional to altitude, really hot temperatures in the low-lying valleys varying from 25°C to 40°C, depending on the seasons and in the high elevations could temperatures varying from 0 °C up to 19°C.

In Cusco area the rainy season starts in September but increase between January and March, while the May–August part of the year is characterized by strong insolation, dry weather conditions cold nights and mornings, which is almost the exact reverse, in terms of insolation, to the coast climate.

This Trek goes through the Andes and the weather conditions in the Andes is very changeable, because of that we highly recommend be prepared for hot temperatures and could temperatures.

WHAT ABOUT ALTITUDE SICKNESS ON CHOQUEQUIRAO TREK TO MACHU PICCHU?

For some visitors, the first hours in Cusco can be summarized as: shortness of breath, a discomfort in the body, dizziness, headaches, stomachaches, even vomiting. As great connoisseurs of natural medicine, the Incas used coca leaves to counteract soroche, quechua for high-altitude sickness.

Don’t do anything other than rest

If you travel from Lima to Cusco, the effect can be immediate. This lack of oxygen, scientifically known as hypoxia, begins to manifest itself at 7,874 ft (2,399 m) above sea level. That’s why right after landing in Cusco, visitors can feel fatigued and have difficulty walking. It is advisable to take it really easy on the first day and, if possible, rest the first few hours to help the body acclimatize to the altitude.

Stay hydrated

How do people feel after a night of drinking? Thirsty. That’s how you’ll feel when you arrive in Cusco. As already stated, the body dehydrates quickly in high altitudes. It is recommended you drink lots of water before and during your trip to Cusco. Also, avoid heavy meals since your stomach takes longer to digest food at high altitudes. A diet of low proteins and high carbs is advisable.

Discovering coca

No one knew better the effects of high altitude than indigenous peoples. Coca is the best natural medicine to combat altitude sickness. It was even considered sacred because of its curative powers and is still used in the same way now as it was in the time of the Incas. It contains iron, vitamins A, B1, B2 and calcium, among other nutrients. Coca makes it easier for your bloodstream to absorb oxygen, suppresses hunger, combats fatigue, headaches and can ease your stomach. Try drinking coca tea, which is found in the lobbies of most hotels in Cusco.

HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE THERE PER GROUP?

The maximum group size is 8 people. Our groups are usually between 2-6 people. Orange Nation specializes in SMALL, PRIVATE groups and provides a personalized service.

HIKING CHOQUEQUIRAO 7 DAY TREK TO MACHU PICCHU

We will give you a SMALL DUFFEL BAG to pack your clothes for the next 8 days at your. Your weight allowance is up to 7kg/14p. Your team of pack horses will carry your duffel bag, food and camping gear. PLEASE NOTE: You will not have access to your items in the duffel bag until the end of each day as the horses will always be ahead of the group. During the Choquequirao trek, you need a day backpack big enough to carry your personal belongings such as a warm jacket, rain jacket, camera, sunscreen, snacks, water, etc.  A 30 to 50L backpack is sufficient.

IS THE TREK DIFFICULT, DO I NEED TO BE FIT?

The trail is not easy but you do not need to be an athlete to do it. It helps to be relatively fit for the trek, and obviously the better shape you are in, the more you will enjoy the trek. If you do not exercise regularly, it is advisable to do extra walking, hiking or some kind of aerobic activity in the months leading up to your trip. This trek is from moderate to difficult level.

WHAT ABOUT TOILETS ON THE TREKS?

Orange Nation Peru toilet facilities have an individual tent with a toilet and seat.  Check out the picture, which illustrates how we set up our camping toilet on the trek by using this link: picture of toilet tent. Our toilet is always set up a comfortable distance from our campsite.  At night if you need to use the toilet it is accessible and clean.

TIPPING

If you’re happy with the services provided, a tip – though not compulsory – is appreciated. While it may not be customary in your country, it’s of great significance for the staff (and their families) who will take care of you during the tour.

Great Tour, Team and Guide Pretty much a perfect experience that far exceeded expectations. The porters were excellent & friendly with great service. The quality of the meals (3 courses while on a mountaintop) were better than most restaurants. Our guide Koko was perfect. He knew about all subjects but also let us dictate the journey. Most importantly he gave great insight to the cultural & spiritual aspects of the Inca. We all were really happy and noticed that the trip became personalized for our small & fast group rather than being a forced template. Can’t recommend enough! 💙

ORANGE NATION / Sam travel / Jhony We did the 4 day Inca Trail with tour guide Jhony to Machu Picchu, and I couldn’t have had a better experience. His knowledge of the ruins along the trial and his experience in my Opinion is unmatched. This tour was one of the best experiences of my life. Not only was his expertise helpful but I consider him to be a new friend of mine. I would take any hike or Tavel experience with this gentleman again. 10/10 experience with this entire crew and would book again with Orange nation in an instant. Jhony was amazing. If you’re looking for an amazing experience and a guide who is knowledgeable, book with Orange nation and tour guide Jhony.

Experience of a lifetime We did the traditional 4 day Inca trail hike & it exceeded our already high expectations. Our guide Jhony was super knowledgeable and friendly and helped to create a bond between our group from the very beginning. The food was incredible and varied & their were plenty of little touches that made our trip even more special. It was my first multi day hike and although it was challenging, sam travel / orange nation made the journey as comfortable, relaxing, and fun as possible. Highly recommend!!

Awesome Experience Orange Nation did an excellent job of covering all of the details of my daughter and my 2 day trek on August 5&6, 2021 for what we felt was an affordable price. Our Andean guide, Liz, spoke English well and was informative in explaining historical, cultural and spiritual aspects of the ancient native people. We were inspired and awestruck by the the beauty of this trek! HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Inolvidable Lares Trek ¡Pero que feliz me siento..! Una de los momentos más inolvidable en mi vida fue en el Tour de Lares Trek ,gracias a la recomendación de algunos amigos que ya habían tenido la experiencia de viajar con Orange Nation. Y si…! Orange Nation fue muy responsable desde mi recojo para el Tour , siempre mostraron ese profesionalismo que mis amigos me contaron y también me di cuenta de eso, como también el gran equipo que nos acompañó en el tour , Nuestro cocinero fue el mejor , preparaba la mejor comida que jamás había probado antes. Y el Guía quien fue muy divertido durante todo el camino hasta el fin del viaje, siempre estaba al pendiente de nosotros y eso me hacía sentir feliz. Pase momentos únicos que aún no puedo olvidarlos y cada vez que lo recuerdo me siento feliz, la experiencia con Orange Nation es la razón de todo eso. Me brindaron un gran servicio que no lo había esperado, pero me sorprendieron. Son los mejores, ¡súper recomiendo!

El Mejor Viaje Mi familia y Yo realizamos un pequeño viaje a Perú (Cusco) donde teníamos planeado visitar y sentir esa magnífica felicidad de estar en una de las maravillas del mundo “Machu Picchu”. Pues no fue fácil, ya que primero tuvimos que sentirnos bien con la altura ya que le afecto un poco a mi Esposa, pero eso no fue un problema para que se lleve a cabo nuestros planes. Por suerte encontramos a Orange Nation, una Agencia muy profesional y sobretodo responsable. Orange Nation se encargó de todo para que mi viaje sea el mejor, nos ofrecieron el tour de (Cusco- Machu Picchu) de dos días. Me encantó la idea ya que no nos sentíamos muy bien así que el primer día visitamos el Famoso Valle Sagrado de los Incas, un Lugar muy tranquilo y lleno de tradición donde podrás contemplar la naturaleza y también hermosas vistas de los diferentes pueblos que se encuentran en el camino. Nuestro Guía fue el mejor, durante todo el viaje fue muy profesional y cuidadoso, siempre cuidaba de nosotros y eso nos hacía sentir seguros. El segundo día fue el mejor, por fin pudimos estar en la Maravilla del Mundo “Machu Picchu” nos sentimos súper felices y muy emocionados, al fin pudimos cumplir uno de nuestro grandes sueños, pero también me siento muy feliz por haber elegido a Orange Nation. Nos sentimos muy agradecidos con ellos por el excelente servicio que nos dio y solo hay una palabra para eso “profesionalismo” y ellos lo tienen,solo decir una vez más Gracias. Súper recomendado.
