TREK TO MACHU PICCHU DAY 4
Route: Choquequirao to Maizal
This was the hardest day of the trek in terms of physical challenge. First a hike out of the Choquequirao campground to the pass at 10,824′, followed by a descent of 5,592′ to the San Juan River where we had lunch. Then a steep trek up 3,500′ to our spectacular campground on the grounds of a family’s farm. It was a trek of ten miles.
