CHOQUEQUIRAW TREK + MACHUPICCHU TREK. The old Inca Trail !!
Choquequirao or Choquekiraw means "Cradle of Gold" in Quechua Inca´s language, although this is probably not its original name. It is another "Lost City of the Incas" rediscovered officially late in 20th century located high on a ridge spur almost 1750 mts above the raging glacier-fed Apurimac River and surrounded by towering Salkantay and Humantay snow-capped peaks. Choquequirao was built during the last days of the Inca empire in the government of the Inca Pachacutec 1490, by Tupac Inca Yupanqui, and probably after the Spanish invasion in 1532. Almost 40 years the Incas held stand against the Spanish conquerors (between 1536 - 1572). The construction of the different levels of temples, palaces, canals, and aqueducts is really fantastic. "Choquequirao is the city which demonstrates the inspiring example of an elite Inca ceremonial center. A city dedicated to worship the “Pachamama” the Andean mother earth -the Apus, mountain gods and divinities, the river and the elements of nature." Choquequirao finally burned down and left deserted. This happened probably after the execution of the last Inca, Tupac Amaru I in 1572.
