Page says that the Huanipaca trail cannot be done on horseback. However in hiking the trail in April 2018, I saw horse/mule tracks and droppings along the whole trail. Certainly not as much as on the Cachora trail, but certainly it has been done. Whether or not anyone is willing to rent a mule for it is another matter I can't speak to.



@Mx. Granger: please explain what you think "technically" means here. As far as I can tell from this text, the campsite is unequivocally in the ruins. This isn't a technicality, it's a fact. You will have to walk 30 min to get to the main plaza. This is another fact (which the rest of the sentence explains), but not one that makes the campsite any less or more in the ruins, or whatever it is you claim "technically" means here. In this case, "technically" is either a modifier that doesn't modify, or it is redundant. Ground Zero (talk) 01:55, 17 April 2019 (UTC)[reply]

The word "technically" suggests that the campsite doesn't feel like it's within the ruins from a traveler's perspective. Perhaps the campsite is within what archeologists or bureaucrats have characterized as the border of the ruins, but the immediate area around the campsite doesn't have much to see in the way of ruins. This is one of the most common meanings of the word "technically" in English: that something is literally true but for whatever reason is imperceptible, irrelevant, or not practical. —Granger (talk · contribs) 03:29, 17 April 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Wow. That's a lot of meaning implied by that word. I don't see how it provides useful information to the traveller, but if you think it's important, I won't argue further. Ground Zero (talk) 11:31, 17 April 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Trekking maps[edit]

I think it makes sense to move the campsites along the Cachora-Choquequirao trail to the "Cachora to Choquequirao trek" map. This is because, although most people come in this way, it isn't the only way to get to Choquequirao. However, I think the campsite at Choquequirao, and possibly the one at Marampata should probably stay on the Choquequirao map (or on both maps? Not sure if that's possible) as everyone will have to stay at one of these two places.

More generally, should we consider trying to further separate out the trek from information on the site itself? The information is currently fairly comingled (eg: the "get around" has information specific to the Cachora-Choquequirao trail). Having proper separation will be important if they ever build that Gondola, though maybe we just wait until that actually happens.
