Choquequirao Trek - An alternative to Machu Picchu by Drink Tea & Travel

Choquequirao (Cradle of Gold) is a partly excavated ruined city of the Inca in the south of Peru. It bears a striking similarity in structure and architecture to Machu Picchu and is referred to as its 'sister'. Choquequirao receives far fewer tourists than its sister but the ruin is no less delightful and is a good alternative to the sometimes overcrowded Machu Picchu. Unlike Machupicchu, Choquequirao cannot be reached by train or bus. The only way to visit the site is to go on a scenic 2-day hike from outside Cusco. Read more.
