HIGHLIGHTS
  • Trek to the uncrowded Choquequirao
  • Enjoy stunning natural scenery
This spectacular trip for adventurous travellers allows you to explore Choquequirao by way of a challenging 20-mile (33-kilometre) trek. Trek in and out along the same trail through the Huanipaca Andean Valley.

With very few people along the way, you will discover beautiful wildlife and have a greater chance of seeing spectacled bears. At the edge of the Apurimac Canyon, as well as in Choquequirao, admire the flight of the Andean Condor. See the amazing number of orchids that are "on display" along the trail. Then, break out through stunning natural scenery and pristine ecosystems of the Peruvian Andes and discover the remote Inca sanctuary of Choquequirao, where archaeologists and architects are still working on research and restoration. Explore this amazing site before heading back along the same trail.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • What is the best month to visit Peru? Can I visit Peru during the off-season?

    The best time to visit Peru is between the months of May and September. Corresponding with the dry season, temperatures in the country at this time hover between 16°C to 22°C. But more importantly, traveling to Peru during this time means that there is little fear of getting caught in the country’s torrential monsoon. Another less popular but still good time to visit Peru is between October and December. A shoulder period between dry and monsoon seasons, the climate during this time of year is generally fine, although skies are cloudier and you might have to dodge the odd shower. The wettest months are January and February. It is still possible to visit destinations such as Lake Titicaca during the rainy season, but the Inca Trail is closed for travelers.

  • Is Peru expensive to visit? How do the ATMs work?

    Peru is not expensive for travelers and we recommend it as a top pick for visitors on a budget. Most travelers can get by on USD 30 to USD 40 per day, including transport, accommodation, and food. Tackling the Inca Trail and exploring Machu Picchu are must-do attractions but also relatively costly. ATMs are the quickest way to withdraw neuvos soles, as the country’s currency is called, on the road and visa cards are easily accepted. Many ATMs have an English language option, too. They can be found in some airports, inside banks, and as stand-alone units in major towns and cities. If you are looking for other destinations to visit on a budget, find more information here.

  • How long would I need to visit Peru?

    Given its wealth of attractions, there are many reasons why you should consider Peru trips that last between ten days and two weeks. This will give you enough time to see top-rated sites, such as Manu National Park, while also discovering the country’s history and culture in more far-flung and as-yet-unknown destinations. You can still take in a number of attractions even if you can only spare one week in Peru, however, the time constraint would mean that you will have to limit your exploration to a destination or two. For a more detailed rundown, check out our travel guide on how many days to spend in Peru.
