I returned from this hike yesterday. I absolutely loved it. I started planning for this hike last year following my first visit to Peru.
I hired my tour guide friend to take me to the ruins. His knowledge of the area made the hike extremely...More
Three lads, travelling, completely unprepared, no camping equipment, three day trek, this is how we did it.
Having read that this is Maccu pichu’s sacred sister, we knew we had to do this trek, however we had nothing, no tents, no sleeping bags, no boots,...More
We booked a 7days/6nights Choquequirao-Machupicchu trip with Johselm after reading the great reviews of his alternative treks.. we didn’t like the sound of what the other tour companies were offering as we wanted to experience what life in the Andes is like and see amazing...More

I found this trail to be a great trip in the sacred valley of you are looking to avoid the crowd of Machupichu. Although this is not a total wilderness area, since there are a few houses along the way, it is quite virgin and...More
One of the most grueling trek you will ever do, to reach a site that was lost to time. It is a vast site with a lot of sub-trails to different huts. With views across the valley, sometimes in clouds. You only wish the buildings...More
I did the Choquequirao- Machu Picchu trek in 10 days by myself. The hardest trek I’ve ever done but I had the whole trail to myself. There were days I couldn’t go on anymore and keep thinking of giving up but I don’t know how...More

My first issue started with timing, originally, I had planned to leave Cusco by 3pm, at the latest, to make it to Saywite by 6ish. Due to unforeseen...More
In November of 2018, my father, my sister, and I did a multi-day trek through the Peruvian Andes to a remote Incan site called Choquequirao. We had an amazing time and highly recommend the hike from Huancacalle - Choquequirao - Cachora for those who enjoy...More

Hi Cole. I remember seeing a few houses in Marampata when I hiked through, but if there are, they are extremally rustic and sure not hotels.The only way up there is walking, so the villagers in Marampata are either self sufficient or they carry their supplies using mules. I did I quick search in Google map and found two "businesses" in the area that you might be able to contact. The didn't have a website, but had phone numbers. You could give them a call and ask. the phones are +51 922 427 454 and +51 980 401 430. I remember that many of the folks in Peru used WhatApp to text, so you might want to check that.
I camped along the way in multiple campsites, and the places I stayed were only campsites, not hostels. If you don't find a place to stay, I remember seeing a few folks that hired a guide through a tour company and they carried all the camping gear for them, set up their tents and cooked for them every night.
I hope this helps. Best of luck.!
