Machu Picchu, PeruIn order to boost the Inca citadel of Choquequirao, the regional and local authorities in Apurimac and Cusco have reached upon an agreement which has been approved by Peru’s Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism (Mincetur).

“Choquequirao is a wonderful city built 3,000 meters above sea level by the end of the Inca era. This is a potential tourist destination. After a two-day meeting, they have agreed to take a number of actions to make it more accessible to visitors,” it informed.

According to Mincetur, a bi-regional promotion will materialize, placing value on this important tourist destination, environmentally and culturally speaking.

The meeting saw the participation of Cusco and Apurimac regional governors, Edwin Licona and Wilbert Venegas, respectively; as well as mayors and officials from San Pedro de Cachora, Huanicapa, Curahuasi, Anta, Santa Teresa, Mollepata, among others.

They also agreed to place value and develop new trails for trekking, giving enthusiasts the chance to explore new and beautiful landscapes.

Deputy Tourism Minister Roger Valencia said arrangements were aimed at building an important tourist attraction together. To that end, they agreed to embark on projects that will improve access to the site. They include the construction of ring roads, a complementary cable-car system and other initiatives that may be necessary.

“Our sister cities have agreed to work together to develop a tourist destination. The disagreements on demarcation and other issues will be addressed separately, but they will not prevent the construction of the tourist place. Choquequirao’s potential is huge and will revitalize the economy of towns along the tourist corridor towards the archaeological complex, located in Apurimac and Cusco regions,” he underlined.
