Magali Silva, Peru’s Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism, mentioned the “important recognition”.

Choquequirao is located in Cusco, in the surrounding areas of Salcantay mountain.It belongs to the Archeological Park of the same name and there are canals, ceremonial areas, terraces, platforms, and temples among others.

Choquequirao can be reached by a challenging 4 or 5 day trek departing from Cusco. Due to its remote location it is much less visited too.
