Day 01: Cusco - Chinchero

An early bus ride will take us to Lake Piuray, where our trip really begins. From here we will hike on local trails for between 4 and 5 hours through fields of typical Andean crops, including corn, potatoes and quinoa. This is an area of outstanding natural beauty, with the high plain ending with the drop into the Sacred Valley of the Incas, and a backdrop of glacial peaks. Arriving in the village of Chinchero, we will have the opportunity to observe and participate in the traditional way of life of our host family.
Overnight in a local house (L-D)

 

Day 02: Chinchero, the Inca City

After a good night’s sleep and an excellent breakfast made from local ingredients we will head to the archaeological complex of Chinchero. This was once the royal hacienda of Inca Yupanqui, and the temples and shrines here were devoted to worship of the pantheon of Inca gods believed to control nature, the fertility of the land and climatic phenomena. At the end of the guided visit, you will have plenty of time for individual exploration.
In the afternoon you will be invited to attend a presentation on the shearing, washing, dyeing and weaving techniques employed in the manufacturing by hand of traditional textiles. During the presentation, the significance of the iconographical patterns with which textiles are decorated will also be explained. Local people continue to work using traditional Inca techniques, and this is now one of the few communities to have conserved such knowledge.
Overnight in a local house (B-L-D) 

 

Day 03: Chichero - Cusco

Before we head back to Cusco, we will participate in a reforesting project. This important part of the trip is focused on the project to replant the area with native trees, thereby contributing to maintenance of the traditional way of life of these Andean villages.
