Trek Day Two

Route: Santa Rosa to Choquequirao

Rising early we trekked along a rising zigzag trail to the hamlet of Marampata for a snack stop.  From there onwards, we saw the ruins of Choquequirao ever more clearly, especially the cascading terraces.  Our campground was a mile and a half from the ruins at 10,020′.
