My partner and I are planning a trek in Peru, February, 2017. We are interested in trekking to Choquequiaro for its remoteness. Do you know the status of the cable car project? We don't want hordes of tourist on the trek! Cheers, Cecilia Canada

Hello, I have a question for those who have done a guided Choquequirao Trek: what was the average cost of your tour? (4days/3nights) Thank you.

Hi, By guided, do you mean you hired mules and guide but planned your meals, tents, etc. or you booked a full tour with everything included? For the former, we payed $50 per day for the guide and $50 per mule.
