Though this 4-hour ascent is challenging for most hikers, you will be rewarded with amazing views of the river valley below. Crossing the Apurimac river, we will make a steep ascent on the opposite side of the valley for two hours until we reach Santa Rosa, where we will take a long break.

 Explore Choquequirao

After a tasty breakfast, we will depart from Marampata and ascend another 2 hours to the ruins of Choquequirao. Our group will be one of the very few visiting, providing a tranquil and private environment for exploring this ancient city. The ruins cover an area far bigger than Machu Picchu. Enormous curving terraces, ritual baths, and a fine main plaza are just some of the highlights. Those with the energy can even descend to see the famous white stone llamas laid into the rock. If we are really lucky,

Just be aware of the biting sand-flies, called “Pumahuacachi” which means “makes the puma cry.” Feeling refreshed, we will take a difficult 4-hour climb to the lovely campsite of Maizal, at 3000m/ 9840ft.Facts

Here, we will have spectacular views of the Cordillera Vilcabamba mountain range, and of the Yamana valley below. We will then take a delightful 2-hour descent to the charming village of Yamana.
