Venture into this fascinating 49km journey through Apurimac – one of the deepest canyons in the country –, to the Inca City of Chokequiraow, considered the last bastion of Inca resistance, where Manco and the other Incas of Vilcabamba resisted the onslaught of the Spanish, until the capture and execution of Túpac Amaru I in 1572; and also known as Machu Picchu’s twin sister for their structural and architectural similarities; where, on the crest of the mountain, constructions inherited from the ancient Peruvians with graphic representations also rise. 

Besides its archeological and historical value, this trek is also rich in wildlife mainly because of the mighty Apurimac River – that moves in direction of the Amazon River – feeding the cloud forest, habitat to orchids, bamboo, spectacled bear, Andean deer, llamas, usno, and even Andean condor.
