Essential Info About 4-day Choquequirao Standard Trekking.

Welcome to Cusco.

Welcome to the vibrant city of Cusco, the gateway to your unforgettable 4-day Choquequirao Standard Trekking. With its rich tapestry of history and culture, Cusco serves as the perfect starting point for your journey. It’s of utmost importance to arrive in Cusco at least two days before your trek begins. This gives you ample time to acclimate to the altitude, explore the city’s captivating Inca and Spanish colonial history, and prepare for the adventure that lies ahead. Embarking on the 4-day Classic Choquekirao Trek is not just about reaching the destination, it’s about immersing yourself in the journey, and there’s no better place to start than Cusco.

About Altitud:

4-Day Choquequirao Standard Trekking is an incredible way to immerse yourself in the breathtaking beauty of Peru. However, it’s important to note that this trek involves navigating higher altitudes. The journey begins in Cusco, which sits at an altitude of 3,399m (11,152ft) – already more than twice as high as most cities worldwide. As you continue along the trail, you’ll reach an altitude of 4,050m (13,287ft) at the awe-inspiring ruins of Choquequirao. While this altitude is not as high as other treks in Peru, it’s still crucial to take precautions to avoid Altitude Sickness. We highly recommend spending at least two days in Cusco before embarking on the trek, allowing your body ample time to adjust. Additionally, it’s essential to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water to combat the effects of dehydration caused by altitude. By following these steps, you’ll ensure a safe and enriching experience on your Choquequirao trek.

Trekking to Choquequirao.

Embarking on the exhilarating journey to Choquequirao, one must be prepared with a precise packing strategy. You will be provided with a compact duffel bag on the evening prior to your adventure. This bag, with a weight allowance of up to 7kg or 14lbs, will carry your essentials for the next 3 days. It’s the pack horses’ responsibility to transport this bag, along with the food and camping gear, ensuring a lightweight trek for you. However, bear in mind, you will have access to these items only at day’s end as the pack horses lead the trail. For the trek itself, your companion should be a substantial day backpack, with capacity ranging from 30 to 50L. This bag must secure your personal items like a warm jacket, a rain jacket, camera, sunscreen, snacks, and water. Remember, a smart packing strategy is the first step towards a successful and enjoyable hike.

About weather for 4-Day Choquequirao Standard Trekking.

When embarking on the Choquequirao Standard Trekking, it is crucial to be prepared for all weather conditions. The weather in the Andes Mountains can quickly and unpredictably change throughout the year. Therefore, it is essential to bring the necessary gear to ensure your comfort and safety during the trek. Be sure to pack rain jackets, pants, ponchos, and waterproof gloves, as these items are vital and often overlooked. While the dry season typically spans from April to October in Cusco, rainfall is still possible at any time of the year. To fully enjoy your trek, make sure to come equipped for any weather conditions that may come your way. Regardless of when you undertake this journey, having the right gear will ensure a pleasant experience. And remember, if it does rain, embrace the adventure and embrace whatever comes your way. Best of luck!

Aside from the weather concerns, the Choquequirao trek offers an awe-inspiring experience with its magnificent views of the lush Andes Mountains and stunning Inca ruins.

You do not require any technical equipment on Choquequirao Standard Trekking; however you will experience changing weather conditions and be exposed to temperatures ranging from +30 degrees to cero degrees, so you should be prepared for this. You should take thin layers that can be added, or taken away depending on the weather conditions. But remember there is a limit to the weight that the porters can carry and your kit bag must be a maximum of 8Kg. You will also have a rucksack that will contain your basic kit for a day’s walking.

How much equipment will I carry?

Your rucksack should contain all of your personal kit for the day ahead; a 30L – 35L rucksack will be sufficient. On an average day you would expect to carry; waterproof clothing, hat, gloves, water, first-aid kit, spare laces, valuables, pack lunch and snacks.
