Easy

These activities are a walk in the park! You will be able to enjoy the scenery, history, and time with loved ones without exhausting yourself. You do not need any special training, gear, or acclimatization for an “Easy” trek or tour. Terrain will be generally flat and comfortable, highly traveled.

Mild

A step up from “Easy,” these tours require a little more physical effort but are still 100% manageable to anyone with or without adventure experience. Again, you do not need special training, gear, or acclimatization for a “Mild” trek or tour. Terrain is generally flat but with possible gentle up- and downhills.

Moderate

Before embarking on a “Moderate” trek or tour, you should be at least partly acclimatized to the high altitude of the Andes as it affects your oxygenation, energy levels, and hydration. These tours are still very manageable without special training as long as you have spent a day or two at high altitude. Terrain often includes moderate up- and downhill walking with possible rough patches or infrequently-traveled sections.

Challenging

“Challenging” treks or tours require that you are acclimated to the Andes’ high altitude before leaving as it affects your oxygenation, energy levels, and hydration. Spending 2-3 days or more at high altitude will help you on the trek. You will need hiking shoes and possibly trekking poles for these treks. You will need to be in good physical shape, and it’s recommended that you train at least some beforehand, possibly with running, biking, or strenuous workout videos. Terrain is often rough, sometimes with steep up- and downhills and often not highly traveled. Generally, these last several hours.

Formidable

These “Formidable” treks are our most difficult treks and require serious effort but are also the most rewarding. It is necessary to be in pristine physical condition. Again, you must be acclimated to the Andes’ high altitude before leaving as it affects your oxygenation, energy levels, and hydration. Spending 4-5 days or more if possible at high altitude will help you on the trek. You will need hiking shoes and possibly trekking poles for these treks. It is important to train physically before these treks so that your body is prepared for the strenuous nature of the trip. Generally, these last at least an entire day in infrequently-traveled areas with rough paths.

Highlights

One of the best places to carry out experiential tourism is undoubtedly this. Above all, Amaru Community Peru Tour – Amaru Andean community takes you to know and learn the main activities. To clarify, the native inhabitants devote themselves in their day to day life to improve the quality of life without losing the customs and traditions learned by the ancestors.

Itinerary

Day 1: Elaboration of the flat weave in Amaru Andean community

Firslty, we will pick you up from the hotel to take you to the village of Pisaq Peru, where we’ll visit the archaeological site. So, from there it will take us a few minutes to reach the Amaru community Peru, where the villagers will welcome us with a warm welcome with typical flowers. Subsequently, they will explain to us the activities to which they are dedicated and the work they do to keep the culture alive and the preservation of nature.

Continuing, with the Amaru community Peru tour, we will begin the tour near the community to collect the plants and materials that we will need for natural dyeing. Likewise, we will see the shear of the Andean camelids, the spinning, the dying of the wool with natural plants. Finally, the confection of the garments. So, we will discover the mystery of the iconography of the flat tissues.

We will share a delicious traditional lunch made by the inhabitants of the area. After that, we will have time to explore on our own or learn from ethnobotany. Arriving at night, we will have dinner and we will be able to rest in the house – rural lodging.

Day 2: Agricultural Activity – Return to Cusco

In the morning, we will wake up to go to the dining room, where they will be waiting for us with a nutritious breakfast. After that, we will go to the fields or also called “Chacras“, where the villagers will teach us how to work the land with the necessary tools. In the same way, we will learn about livestock and some domestic activities.
