The world of the shaman moves between realities, this journey has all the ingredients for you to experience all these worlds. In Peruvian shamanism, these are represented by the serpent, the puma and the condor.

The serpent represents the underworld (Uju Pacha), this is where you can find your power animal as well as lost or fragmented pieces of your soul. The puma is in the middle world (Kay Pacha), where you will clearly see the relationship you have with the world you live in. From this deep inner space make the necessary adjustments to live a balanced and abundant life.

The upper world (Hanang Pacha) is the world of the condor. The master of the sky, the one that flies effortlessly navigating with perfection and ease. The upper world is the world of spirit, the Masters, the enlightened beings that are always ready to teach and show you the way. You will journey to meet with your Teacher or Teachers so you can receive the spiritual guidance to live your life.

Come and discover these three worlds that are all within yourself, expand and enter the inner world of the shaman.

AGUAS CALIENTES

Staying in Aguas Calientes, close to Machu Picchu will allow you to enjoy the morning’s quiet atmosphere of the site.

However, compare to the rest of the country, the hotels in Aguas Calientes have a lower quality standard. It is possible that a room might be slightly small for instance but the basic services (comfort, cleanliness …) will be provided.

ALTITUDE

Except in a case of strong physical effort, you won’t feel the effects of altitude. We organized the journey to provide you with a gradual adaptation, a sweet rhythm that will allow you to walk without inconvenience. Our guides and your travel companions will be keeping a slow pace. This will happen naturally.

In case you experience some undesired altitude effects, a simple moment of rest and drinking a large amount of liquids are the best solutions.

We will provide more information about the means to treat and avoid altitude sickness in the file we will send you before the trip.

In case of doubt don’t hesitate to ask your doctor.

After the journey the abundance of red blood cells will provide you with vitality and dynamism!

Like the athletes that train in altitude, your journey will be like a cure of revitalization!
