The archaeological site of CHOQUEQUIRAW is part of the complex system of Andean towns in Vilcabamba Valley. In the time of the Incas, it was connected with Machu Picchu by a complex network of trails.

CHOQUEQUIRAW is located in the spurs of the mountain range of Salcantay, at 3035 m.a.s.l, surrounded by the snowcapped Apus of Yanama, Ampay, Choquecarpu, Pumasillo and Panta on the right side of Apurimac River in the Santa Teresa district, province of la Convencion in the department of Cusco.

Choquequiraw is an Inca town formed by small sites spread out in rubblework which puts together a complex metropolis similar to those of the other regions placed on the crest of the hill by the same name Choquequiraw.
