Itinerary
Day 01
Pisac

Cusco - Sacred Valley - Pisac

Hotel: Local Hotel or similar

Today we will meet or pick you up in Cusco, nestled among the energy-infused mountains of the Andes. We will transfer straight to the lower altitudes, warmer climate and peaceful environment of the Sacred Valley. Along the way, we will visit Awanakancha, a community-driven project that introduces us to the South American camelids and traditional weaving techniques of the area.

After arriving at your hotel in Pisac, you will participate in an authentic Andean Blessing to Pachamama (the Earth Mother) ministered by an Andean Priest. This ceremony invokes the help and energy of the Mountain Gods and Pachamama (the Apus and the Earth Mother, respectively) for the health, wellbeing, and happiness of the participants.

At the same time, the participants show appreciation for life and their blessings. After the ceremony, you will have the chance to purchase handmade items from the Andean Priest. These items are all made by our priests’ spouses and other members of their community in support of their traditional way of life.

Tips:
Lunch is included.

Day 02
Ollantaytambo

Señor de Huanca - Pisac Ruins - Ollantaytambo

Hotel: Local Hotel or similar

After breakfast, we will leave the Hotel and travel through the Sacred Valley, stopping at the shrine of the Señor (Lord) de Huanca, located on the mountain known as Apu Huanca. This sacred massif is considered to be the “Master Doctor” or “Protector of Health” in this part of the Andes.

We will then visit Pisac Ruins (admission not included), a spectacular Inca site located along the length of a ridgeline high above the village of the same name. Here, we will learn about the Intiwatana (Sun Temple) and its religious significance before continuing through the picturesque Sacred Valley to the town of Ollantaytambo, our home for the evening.

Ollantaytambo is the only continuously inhabited Inca town; it is still laid out on its original Inca street plan. Our tour will take us up its steep terraces to the enigmatic, unfinished temple and magnificent views at the top. We will explore the lower temple as well, with its many baths and water channels.

Before dinner, you will have the opportunity to wander Ollantaytambo’s cobblestone streets lined with water channels that have been running since the time of the Incas.

Tips:
Note that the ruins of Pisac and Ollantaytambo require purchasing an additional entrance ticket.

Breakfast is included.
