Half a day dedicated to visiting an Andean community and the ancestral ceremony of ‘ofrendas a la tierra’ (offerings to Mother Earth-Pacha Mama), discovering the cosmovision of this part of the world.
In the morning, we head to Pongobamba, near Chinchero, where we are welcomed by the members of the community and a guide who will introduce Andean spiritualism and syncretism to us. With gorgeous views of the ‘Laguna de Piuray’ and the “Apus” (the sacred mountains) that surround the community, we will make an offer to ‘Pachamama’. A “Paco”, an Andean master of ceremonies, will lead the ceremony. He will also give, to those who wish, a reading of coca leaves. We will end the tour with a brief demonstration of the textile process and a rustic lunch made with typical local dishes.
By having lunch and visiting the textile community, you directly support these local families.
