Choquequirao, Peru

Choquequirao is an Inca city similar to Machu Picchu – the Incas preferred spectacular locations high up in the mountains to build their cities. The trek to Choquequirao is a good alternative to the overcrowded and expensive Inca Trail and I walked it together with three good friends, which I happened to meet again in Cusco. It took us three days to reach the site, and then we stayed there for two nights. We spent most of the last night up in the ruins, completely alone, except for a condor which came to visit us.
