Choquequirao is an Inca citadel, and is just as impressive as the world famous Machu Picchu. It’s commonly known as the ‘Lost City of the Incas’ because it’s so remote and difficult to get to. This means that it has very few visitors on a daily basis and is a great alternative if you don’t like large crowds.
Only a part of the site is uncovered at the moment and is huge overall. You get to enjoy the immense citadel in peace with just the sounds of nature to accompany you. Similarly to Machu Picchu, it formed a link between the Andean and Amazonian regions.
This archaeological site was hugely important in its time and it served as one of the last resting places of the Incas before the Spanish invasion.
