There are three trails leading to Choquequirao, one from Cachora, Huanipaca and one from Yanama. To reach Cachora or Huanipaca, take the bus from [[Cusco]] to Abancay and get off at Ramal de Cachora - the turn off for Cachora or Huanipaca (just past Saywite). There are many bus companies that leave for Abancay from Cusco's Terminal Terrestre, but timetables are not usually online. As of March 2014 Breddes buses leave at 5:00am, 6:00am, 10:00am, 1:00pm and 8:00pm (20 soles). Ampay, does the route for 15 soles (8:30am, 9:15am and then roughly once an hour until noon, as of May 2018). Get off the bus at Ramal (de Cachora), and from there you need to take a taxi (10-15 minute ride) or walk down the switchback roads or paths cutting directly down the hill from the main road to the town you intend to hike from. Taxis often wait for the people from the bus during the daytime, except on Sunday when you might have to wait an hour. A shared ride from Ramal to Cachora costs should cost 5 soles per person.  A private taxi will cost 30 soles. From Cachora either you can directly start waking, or take a taxi (30 soles as of May 2018) to the Mirador de Capuliyoc, effectively saving about 3 houres.

An alternative to taking a bus is to take a colectivo from Cusco to Curahuasi. The ride costs 15 soles per seat. The collectivos leave from near the eastern end of Avenida Arcopata whenever they are full. Once at Curahuasi, you can take a taxi to Cachora for 60 soles (less if you are good at haggling).
