Adventures of Choquequirao to Machu Picchu Trek www.choquequiraotrekperu.com Due to the current restrictions on the number of hikers on the classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu there have been several new treks being offered in recent years. One of the most common is the Salkantay route which is usually a four or five-day hike to Machu Picchu. Another trek that has become popular recently is the hike to Choquequirao trek in Peru another set of Inca ruins that like Machu Picchu are in the high jungle and have been covered with vegetation and are now being excavated and restored. This is also normally a four or five day hike usually done with animal support and is an out and back trip on the same trail. Because most people who go hiking in the Cusco area want to see Machu Picchu there is now an option to continue from Choquequirao on a combination of other trails to Machu Picchu. This route uses small footpaths some Inca trails and a few seldom used roads part of which is the same as the Salkantay route. It is normally advertised as a seven to eight-day trek and is usually offered with pack animal support. The advantages of these new routes are that as of now 2008 there are no restrictions on the number of trekkers and it is possible to hike them on your own without being part of a tour group with an official guide.

Dont let the lack of restrictions on the number of hikers scare you comparatively few tourists are on the trails it just means that if you are planning last minute and the regular Inca Trail quota is full you can easily hike one of the alternate trails with no problem. The first part to Choquequirao trek in Peru is more heavily used we saw about 25-30 people tourists guides and locals total on the trail in that stretch.
