Spiritual Tour-Sacred Valley & Patacancha

Homestay Journey

Description

Spiritual Tour in the Sacred Valley and Patacancha

Live beyond of the imagination in the Spiritual tour. We will be part of the ancestral event in one of the communities of Patacancha, a people that is considered to be the last Incas living their traditions, habits, typical costumes and faith. The highlight may well be the Spiritual tour. In this Spiritual tour the Andean Shaman gives thanks to the Apus, the Holy Mountains the Guards that protect the entire Holy Valley and to Mother Earth, the Pachamama, that thanks to mother nature one can live and produce different products, so that man can survive.

We will also be part of an Andean gastronomic event, which is the ceremonial Pachamanca dish, a form of cooking with different ingredients such as trout, alpaca, chicken and a variety of vegetables, on stones buried under the ground.

Important



Cusco – Patacancha (11,811 ft) Cusco

You can start from your hotel in Cusco, the Sacred Valley or Ollantaytambo

Very early, we leave for the village of Patacancha where we will meet with the Homestay family to guide us to the pastures where lamas, alpacas and sheep are grazing. There, we will participate in a lama ceremony and learn how the Andean people thank nature. After the ceremony, we will return to the village of Patacancha where we will also share the typical Andean Pachamanca dish. The Homestay family will explain to us what are the principal ingreients and the whole cooking process. It will not just be a demonstration, but we will all be assistants in the process. While waiting for 40 minutes for the meal to get ready, the Homestay family will give us a small demonstration of their textile arts, which is part of their daily life as they are themselves producing their own typical, colorful costumes in the whole region. Then, we can taste our Pachamanca meal and say goodbye to the family to continue by private transport to the beautiful archeological site of Pumamarka. After that, we will descend by car to the village of Ollantaytambo, visiting the archeological site with beautiful terraces, water sources, Palaces and its Holy Huaca that today is known as the Sun Temple. In the time of the Inca, this was a very important village. Back to our hotel in Cusco or Sacred Valley.
