Cusco – Amaru – Sacaca – Panti Pallay – Cusco

The day starts with a presentation given by the community of Amaru. They will present us the products they harvest and their way of life. Then we will begin a gentle and beautiful walk to go to the community of Sacaca. On the way we will pass beautiful streams, admire the scenery and  collect flowers and leaves. As soon as we reach Sacaca, its settlers invite us to use their best clothes to go with them to do their daily work in the field, this may be: do the sowing, harvesting etc. depending on the time of visit.

Then, we will have the opportunity to have a delicious meal prepared by settlers where we see that the fame of the flavor of Peruvian Cuisine is not only of the great restaurants.

After this activity we will have a presentation of Andean weaving form the association of Panti Pallay. In their traditional way of dyeing and weaving they use flowers and plants. They will show us how they are used to dye the wool in a unimaginable range of colors, with which they´ll teach us to weave with techniques inherited from generation to generation since Inca times.

In the afternoon after the adventure of meeting new ways of life in these beautiful communities, we say goodbye to settlers and we will go back to Cusco.
