Choquequirao features ancient ruins similar to those found in Machu Picchu. You can visit the ruins, view the Apurimac canyon (which is twice as deep as the Grand Canyon, and just as beautiful), and tour remote villages. Here, you can learn about Andean wildlife, take a tour of a coffee plantation, relax in hot springs, and more when you visit this popular site. You can trek the region on the way to Machu Picchu, as well. This is an excellent option for those who wish to have an in depth experience on their trip to Peru, as it not only affords you the benefits of the breathtaking scenery, but gives you an insight into the culture as well.
