Four things set Choquequirao apart from Machu Picchu:
1. It is more difficult to access
2. Because of #1 It is infinitely less crowded than Machu Picchu
3. Treks to Choquequirao are relatively new
4. It is 3X larger than Machu Picchu!
Choquequirao is another example of how incredible the Incas were at using their resources to thrive in an unforgiving landscape. Choquequirao was one of the places the Incas used to perform rituals for the mountains and agriculture. At the risk of sounding like a pushy cars salesman, the opportunity to explore Choquequirao with fewer than 50 people there will not last forever!
