  • Inca Trail  Choquequirao Trek 8D/7N
  • Choquequirao and Machu Picchu stand as poignant symbols of resistance during the invasion of Peru. In the face of numerous conflicts that arose with the arrival of invaders, there were resilient individuals who steadfastly clung to their ancestral culture, bravely defending their religion, customs, and way of life. These cities serve as both the beginning and end of Andean history, bearing witness to the struggles endured under the shadow of invasion. Their significance transcends mere historical markers; these sites were vital for numerous ceremonies, rituals, and sacrifices. These acts were not just cultural expressions but desperate attempts at survival in the midst of adversity. The profound importance of Choquequirao and Machu Picchu lies in their resilience, as they became sanctuaries where the spirit of the Andean people persevered against the challenges imposed by external forces.
