Cachora is located in the department of Apurimac just off the road between Abancay and Cusco. It is the most popular starting point for travelers who want to see the amazing newly-rediscovered Inca site Choquequirao.
Buses leave for Abancay from Cusco at 5:00am, ask the driver to stop at the turn off for Cachora, just past Saywite. You need to take a taxi from the main road to the town. Taxis often wait for the people from the bus, except on Sunday when you might have to wait an hour.
There are some small stores where you can buy basic food and drinks. Biscuits, eggs, vegetables, bread, water, Inka Cola etc.
There is a building with a restaurant sign on it but it was closed when we passed through.
Bus to Cusco or Abancay. Walk to Santa Teresa or Machu Picchu.
