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.

Continuing with the tour we will move onto the temple of Koricancha, the famous Sun Temple of Qosqo that was and still remains the pinnacle of organization, architecture, and religion of Inka civilization.

DAY 7: QUILLARUMIYOQ – ANDEAN CEREMONY WITH WACHUMA (SAN PEDRO)

Quillarumiyoq is an ancient temple dedicated to the Moon Goddess and other feminine essences of Mother Earth. Located in the valley of Ankawasi (House of the Eagle) with views of rural agricultural communities and nestled at the foothills of the Salkantay mountain range, a traditional Andean priest will accompany us for the “despacho” (offering) ceremony, where we will have the opportunity to express our prayers and gratitude to Pachamama (Mother Earth) and the Apus, the guardian spirits of the mountains.

This ceremony is also another opportunity to go deeper into our spiritual essences, to continue to heal and harmonize while liberating or transforming all heavy energy we have accumulated through our experiences in life and make way for more light energy, expanding our personal awareness and consciousness into higher vibrations.
