A Photo Diary of Choquequirao to Machu Picchu

Apus Peru > Peru Hikes > A Photo Diary of Choquequirao to Machu Picchu

In early May, 2013, Anthony and Shari Ellis from Michigan, USA hiked the epic Choquequirao to Machu Picchu trek, celebrating their 20th anniversary. They trekked with Apus Peru veteran guide Jose Sotelo. We thank Anthony and Shari for sharing their photos with us. They truly capture the majesty of the trek! We always welcome others who have trekked with Apus Peru to do the same! Photos like these are excellent resources for people who are planning to trek so that they can see some of the terrain!
