The archaeological site of Choquequirao in danger


Workers from the National Direction of Copesco in Cusco are working building a new road in the area of Huanipaca, they use dinamite in order to work faster, but the detonations are affecting the stone structures of the archaeological site of Choquequirao. Choquequirao was discovered recently and it almost as important as Machu Picchu, tough it has not been declared a National Reserve as Machu Picchu, therefore it is allowed to use dinamite in the construction work in the surroundings.
The authorities should avoid any damage to the old stone structure.
