Swirling fog burns off revealing #machupicchu highlighting the fact the this #cloudforest environment is not far from the #amazonjungle. Hike 1.5 hrs up steep stairs to the top of #machupicchumountain for unparalleled views!
A special lunch with our friends at the school in Pilliray makes for a fantastic afternoon! After a silly game of musical chairs with the kids singing in their native #Quechua language we enjoy a meal cooked in the traditional pachamanca technique. Start with the perfect stacking of rocks in a dome shape. Heat the rocks by burning wood inside the dome for 4 hours, then add your food, knock down the rocks, more food, more rocks, cover with alfalfa, and let cook for 20 mins. Having an expert chef present the food brings the experience to the next level.
Visiting our guides home and working farm in the #sacredvalley after an intense hike on the #incatrail really finishes off our visit to #peru the right way. Experiencing tradition straight from the source, cutting alfalfa for the guinea pigs who roam the kitchen has been done since the time of the #inca. Making and drinking the sacred fermented corn drink of the #inka, #chicha, has also been passed down for centuries and is only produced on a local level. We get a first hand look at the process and the rare chance to try this sacred drink made by the family of our guide, just for us. Top the afternoon with a meal prepared from food harvested from the farm and we have a genuine Peruvian experience many will never know. #nofilter
The trek to #huchuyqosqo #ruin in the #sacredvalley of #peru is a route #lesstraveled, but well worth it. We stay with a farming family right next to the ruin that is only accessible by foot. We learn the ways of the Peruvian highland farmer, have dinner with them, and explore the ruin named “Little Cusco” without the crowds. #livetheadventure #peruadventures #trekking #hiking #incatrail #peruvianculture #hikeperu
