Choquequirao Trekking Programs
We are local tour guides, leading trekking to Choquequirao: (Choqqe = Grey, Gold, and k’iraw, break / relax / cradle), then people agree that this means Gold Cradle, however; in Cusco where Quechua language has being originated, Gold = QORI, Kiray = an action for TO SLEEP. I guess the meaning is not in quechua, this may be from the PUKINA, A language that now is extinct, and was used in the region by inhabitants before Incas.
The origin of the name, will still be hard to decode, but something that is true, is the fact that the city is amazing, worth to visit. We have created several trekking programs that includes this wonderful archaeological site.
The shortest trekking program for this site are 3 days, while the longest itinerary takes 12 days, for which we have well maintained equipment, expert local guides who are fluent in English, cooks, muleteers and helpers, with nature preservation minded.
