This initiative aims to bolster tourism in Peru and distribute visitor flow more evenly across these high-demand areas.

The government explained that promoting this circuit would help solidify Machu Picchu and Choquequirao and give travelers a reason to extend their stay in Peru. It would redirect some of the Machu Picchu traffic towards Choquequirao. The "Choquequirao Cable Car Project" set for 2025 is expected to make Choquequirao accessible to up to a million new visitors to the archaeological site.

The Peruvian Government also aims to revitalize domestic and national tourism through promotional campaigns, hoping to attract over 7 million visitors. These campaigns will include fairs, business roundtables, and the transportation of 1.3 million passengers, with the support of the private sector for execution. They aim to improve conditions for visitors and support tourist visits.

The Peruvian government's grand initiative to enhance the Cusco—Machu Picchu—Choquequirao tourist circuit marks a significant effort to diversify tourism in one of South America's wealthiest countries in cultural and natural heritage. Peru is gearing up to welcome a more substantial number of visitors, offering enriching experiences that go beyond its iconic destinations.
