Where is choquequirao?

Choquequirao, hidden in the Salkantay mountain range, over the Apurímac River valley, under the jurisdiction of the district of Santa Teresa, Province of La Convención, Department of Cusco, in the south of Peru. Only about a third of Choquequirao, a vital link between the Amazon jungle and the city of Cusco, has been excavated. What has been discovered to date follows the traditional Inca construction: a temple and some administrative buildings are located directly around a central square with the homes of more common people further away.
U.S. explorer Gary Ziegler has said that the number of niches and double-jamb doors in the Choquequirao construction shows that the lost city was once in high status.

What's the matter with shockquirao?

Choquequirao is a surprisingly well preserved ruin of an Inca city located in Vilcabamba - Cusco - Peru. It is considered to be the "Sister City" of Machu Picchu as there are many similarities between the two.
Choquequirao was both a cultural and religious center for the Incas. Predictably this citadel was used as a checkpoint to ensure access to the areas of Vilcabamba, which connected the jungle with other important centers such as Pisac and Machu Picchu.
It was also considered as a refuge for the Incas who by orders of Manco Inca, left the city of Cusco to take refuge in the cities of the region of Vilcabamba, when around the year 1535 Cusco was besieged by the Spaniards. At present we can still see that Choquequirao has some walls with decorations of figures like flames.

How is the height ofchoquequirao?

The lost citadel of Choquequirao is located at 3,035 meters above sea level above sea level and at the lowest point of the trek you will be at 1,461 meters above sea level.
The climate is similar to that of Cusco so it is advisable to acclimatize to the heights before walking. It should be noted that the road to Choquequirao is warm due to the Apurimac Canyon.
