12-DAYS IN PERU

OCTOBER 15–26, 2024

The Inca Culture remains nearly untouched by the outside world thanks to the communities who dedicated part of their lives to the preservation of these Ancient Ways. Likewise, it is said that during the Spanish conquest, many Inca Priests fled to the mountains to keep their cultural heritage alive. These Ancient Traditions marked the Peruvian lands with such deep-rooted mysticism that they brought a valuable cultural and religious heritage to the country, where Ceremonies help us understand our place within the Living and Spiritual realm, thereby understanding our existence on earth. To live this experience we put in your hands this program that will be Lived in the Andes of Cusco-Peru.
