We are encouraging travelers to participate in this trek before the tram is completed.

Little known to the world, the ancient Peruvian city of Choquequirao is often referred to as Machu Picchu's sister city. Travelers have been able to avoid the crowds of Machu Picchu and discover the amazing 15th century Choquequirao ruins located in the Salkantay Mountain Range. Those up for the strenuous trek that takes two days of hiking each way will not be disappointed. They will be rewarded by stunning vistas, gorgeous campsites, and the liberty to explore the mysterious Inca ruins.

This ancient city is about to undergo some definitive changes, however. By the end of 2015, the Peruvian government plans to build the first aerial tramway in the country to none other than Choquequirao. It is anticipated that this tramway will deliver up to 3,000 people to the area each day. Currently visited by just a handful of travelers per week, the rugged Choquequirao ruins are in for a big shock. Therefore, this is perhaps the last year for travelers to experience the ruins in their current state. Adventure Life is offering the Choquequirao experience as it has always been, before it no longer exists.

“We are encouraging travelers to participate in this trek before the tram is completed,” said general manager Jonathan Brunger. “Choquequirao will always be magnificent. Nothing will change that. However, the overall experience might be very different in the future.”

The current rate for this tour starts at $3,325 per person. To see the details of the Choquequirao Trek, visit
