Itinerary: May 29 - June 13, 2017

Upon arriving in Cusco from your country, you will be met at the airport by a Back2Nature affiliate who will take you by private transportation to your selected hotel in the Sacred Valley. On the way to the hotel, we will make stops if necessary to shop and change currency. You will have the afternoon to rest and acclimate to avoid altitude sickness.

Accommodation:                              Sacred Valley Hotel.

After a relaxing breakfast, we will go to the “waka” of Urco. Wakas (or wacas) abound throughout Peru and is the Quechua name for an important sacred site. Urco is located in the town of Calca, where we will visit the mystical sanctuary of Wiracocha and learn about the Inca system of agricultural terraces. This is the location of a famous legend that originated the Water Festival of Urco (Unu Urco) which is celebrated on October 1st. For over 500 years, Urco has remained hidden from most tourists.

Waka Urko is a perfect location for honoring Pachamama (Mother Earth) and there you will also find an unusual anthropomorphic rock in which you will see the shape of a frog and a snake. This place is a unique and special Waka, especially for healers. Here, we will also do an opening ceremony together with the Paqos to connect with our Pachamama.

Accommodation:                               Sacred Valley

Today we will drive to the base of Apu Pachatusan, considered since ancient times to be the doorway to the universe. We will then visit the archaeological park of Tipon with its amazing hydraulic system, a wonder of engineering and technology.

At the base of this mountain, the Qero paqos will offer a ceremony to cleanse our bodies with the water coming from this powerful mountain.

Accommodation:                               Sacred Valley

On Day 4, we will travel from the Sacred Valley north towards Cusco to reach the Valley of Ancahuasi. Upon arrival, we will visit the archeological site of Quillarumiyoq, including important shrines such as the main astronomical observatory, the water fountains and the Ushno of Qoriwayrachina. Afterwards the Qero Paqos will offer a ceremony to connect you with the moon.

Accommodation:                               Sacred Valley.

On Day 5, we will visit sacred Pisaq. Here we will discover several major Incan holy temples. The ceremony we join in with the Q’ero Paqos will take a place in a stunning location designed to facilitate our deepest connection to the vision of the falcon. After the ceremony, we will explore the colorful market in the main town of Pisaq. The market is renowned for the exquisite arts and crafts brought in by many native artisans from the surrounding communities. There are many different handicrafts available, including textiles, weavings, ceramics, ponchos, and much more. Private transportation will take us back to our hotel in Cusco at the end of the day.

Accommodation:                               Sacred Valley.

On this day, we will visit the powerfully beautiful site of Moray. The Paqos will lead us in working with the new energies in this new time and helping us to plant sacred seeds for our spiritual development.

Moray is a well known feminine site for the Paqos. The sacred archaeological site contains stunningly unique ruins, consisting of several terraced circular depressions similar to an enormous amphitheater.

From Moray, we will also enjoy amazing views of the holy mountains of the Sacred Valley.

Accommodation:                               Sacred Valley.

Today we will visit Pumamarca, an ancient Inca place where we will visit the waka of the puma. In this sacred place, we will perform ceremony to face our fears with the help of the spirit of the puma, guided by the Paqos.

Accomodation:                                  Sacred Valley.

On Day 8, our bus will take us to Ollantaytambo. Ollantaytambo is an ancient astronomical observatory. It is known as the Temple of the Winds, the Throne of the Sun. There are several temple areas. There sits a massive Throne of the Sun that faces the mountain spirit, Wiracocha. We will visit the main temples and our guide will explain the archaeological importance of this about how important site for the Incas. This observatory and fortress was constructed of rock walls of tightly fitted pink granite blocks weighing over 50 tons each! The quarries that they were carved from are situated on a mountaintop seven miles away. They had to be lowered down one mountain, over a river canyon with 1000 ft of sheer rock walls, and then raised up the mountain to the complex they are situated on. It was an engineering feat that remains an enigmatic mystery.

Afterwards touring the vicinity of Ollantaytambo, we will climb to the Temple of the Winds, where the Q’ero Paqos will offer a ceremony.

Later in the day, we will go to the Ollanta train station and continue our journey from there to Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu), the city.

Accommodation:                               Aguas Calientes.

After breakfast we will head to the bus station and take a short 20 minute trip to reach the sacred mountain and historic sanctuary, Machu Picchu.

The Machu Picchu tour will take us on a fascinating journey through some of the most incredibly scenic sites imaginable on this planet. These include unparalleled examples of Incan architecture, streets, squares, fountains, and ceremonial temples, are all surrounded by lush vegetation. The citadel reaches a height of 2490 m. From here, you can see incredible views of the mountains like Wayna Picchu, Putukusi, and Inti Punku.

There is also an option to climb to the top of Wayna Picchu, while you are here. It is a steep hike, but well worth the effort if your physical condition can manage it. Wayna Picchu is a sacred feminine mountain that is a counterpart to the masculine, Machu Picchu. Wayna Picchu is also connected to the child aspect and youth, while Machu Picchu is connected to the ancestors and crystals.

In the afternoon, we will take the bus down toward Aguas Calientes for lunch, and then take the train to Ollantaytambo, where our bus will be waiting to transport us on to Cusco.

Accommodation:                               Cusco

Day 10 will be a free day in which you can choose to explore Cusco, go shopping, see the sites, or relax.

On Day 11, we will visit the archaeological site of Chinchero. Since ancient times, it has been an important place connected to Tupac Inka Yupanqui also known as Pachacuti, the most famous Inca emperor of all time. His name means, “he who overturns space and time.” Here we will have a beautiful ceremony to connect with ancestral masculine wisdom and energy. Afterwards we will have time to visit the local houses where native women will show us the process of weaving and recovering the Inca symbols expressed on their sacred textiles.

Accommodation:                 Cusco

On Day 12, we will visit the archaeological park of Sacsayhuaman. Sacsayhuaman holds a very important temple connected to lightning, which is considered sacred to the Incan people. Throughout the entirety of Sacsayhuaman we will explore many beautiful temples, and then continue to the Temple of the Moon for a ceremony which includes a powerful despacho offering for Pachamama (Mother Earth). The Paqos (shaman priests) will lead the ceremony. Cusco’s Temple of the Moon is located on a large hill with two caves inside it. The caves contain altars, and cracks in the walls to let in sunlight or more significantly, moonlight that illuminates the altars on key celestial nights.

Accommodation:                               Cusco

Over the course of the next two days, you will spend time in the majestic mountain region of Soraypampa, allowing your heart to be touched by its apus (mountain spirits). Camping at 4000 meters above sea level, this area is the ideal environment to fully connect with the natural world and to further develop your sensitivity to subtle energy work. On the first day, you will arrive at the base camp, set up, and settle in. The second day, we will hike up towards the beautiful lagoon of Umantay. You will also work with the element of water there. When you arrive at the lake, the Paqos, (who will be traveling with you) will offer a despacho (gift) to Umantay. You will have the opportunity to cleanse your body, mind and soul in preparation for your initiation the next day

Accommodation:                               Tents.

The last day will be a day of integrating all the initiations and sacred experiences you have had throughout the journey. The closing ceremony will also take place on this day on a very special farm outside of Cusco, at the valley of Pumamarka. This farm or ranch in ancient times belonged to the Emperor Pachacuti and his clan. Here the Paqos will work with Mama Yaku, the sacred goddess of water and the holy spring she is connected to. During this time, the Paqos will give you a special blessing to close the journey and prepare you for your trip home.

Note: Although carefully anchored in an energetic “template” as well as in detailed practical advance planning, this itinerary remains “subject to reality.” It is the nature of pilgrimage and apprenticeship that some things may change at the last minute. In our experience, the few changes that occurred on our previous journeys often opened the door to unforeseen (and usually wonderful) opportunities. Thank you in advance for your flexibility and willingness to adapt, to take advantage of the ever-changing possibilities inherent in a fluid shamanic universe!

With Love

Tukuy Sonqoymanta (from all my heart),
