Next we will travel through the district of Curawasi and Saywute, arriving at Cachora at approximately 10 a.m. We will begin our trek from this area, along sloping paths leading to the pass of Capuliyoc (2800 meters above sea level) where we will stop for lunch after a two hour walk. Then we will continue our journey to the town of Chaquisqa (1930 meters above sea level). The whole trail to Chaquisqa is downhill. The landscape is awesome and the weather is warm. Our first camp will be setup here. This is a three hour walk.
After breakfast at 5:00 am we will continue our walk towards Playa Rosalina (1550 meters above sea level). To follow will be an early climb up the hill towards Santa Rosa (2100 meters above sea level) where we will stop for lunch. That's the hardest part of the trail done. After we will climb for three hours up to the Maranpata (2850 meters above sea level), which is an easier climb. During our journey we will observe the vegetation in the area. Later, we will journey along a straight section towards Sunchupata where we will camp. Trekking time is two hours.
Very early after breakfast (5:00 am) we will travel towards Choquequirao to see the sun rise. This is a one hour walk and is where we will remain for three hours in the company of a guide who will provide you with all the details about this important inka refuge. At the scheduled time, we will begin our return to Sunchupata, descending to Santa Rosa, where we stop for lunch. Thereafter we will continue descending to Playa Rosalina that takes about an hour. Upon our arrival at Rosalina we will continue our journey to the village of Chaquisqa, two hours away from Rosalina, where we will spend the night.
A hearty breakfast shall be served in Chaquisqa (06:00 am), after which we will return along the same route to Cachora which is the slope we descended on the first day and which is a smooth climb of two hours until we reach the pass of Capuliyoc.
