Choquequirao is located 3,085 meters above sea level, in the Vilcabamba Valley. It is located in the jungle center, which is the transition from the Andean valleys to the jungle. Life in this area belongs to those given in dry, montane and sub-tropical forests. The confluence of these environmental variations makes it an important attraction for visitors to observe various expressions of the fauna and flora of the place such as the spectacled bear, the condor, colorful butterflies and birds such as the trogón – bird similar to the quetzal.
