We’re so thrilled that Knowmad was mentioned as the company to call for your Choquequirao trekking plans by Condé Nasts’s Traveler magazine! Traveler explains how the multi-day trek to the the lesser-travelled but equally magnificent Choquequirao indeed stands up to comparisons to Machu Picchu. Our founders, Tara and Jordan Harvey, have journeyed to the archaeological site themselves – affectionately called “Choque” – and came out of it more impassioned than ever, affirming that it makes trekkers feel about as much like Indiana Jones as possible.
Part of what makes Choquequirao so special is that the only way to reach the site at the moment is by foot, although there will be an air tram travelers can use in the coming years, which will undoubtedly make it a much busier destination. Because of this, Knowmad recommends planning your Choque trek sooner rather than later to really experience this site in a truly remarkable way. We break down these details, the logistics of how Knowmad does the Choquequirao trek, and how it compares to the Inca Trail Trek to Machu Picchu in our Trek Check.
It’s such a wonderful honor to be mentioned by Condé Nast Traveler, and we can’t wait to help you plan your next adventure to those incredible, off-the-beaten-path, and lesser-known places that make South American travel to special!
