Pisac : kleurrijke markt en Inca ruines.  Als je in Cusco verblijft, raad ik je van harte aan om Pisac, in de Heilige Vallei van de Inca’s, te bezoeken. Je kunt Pisac op verschillende manieren bereiken. Je kunt een prive tour boeken (wat enigszins prijzig is) of een dagtour boeken naar de Sacred Valley of the Incas. Dit is een leuke optie waarbij je alle highlights van de Valley zult zien: Pisac, Ollantaytambo, Chincheros en Urubamba. Alles in 1 dag! The bus and gids zijn bij de tour ingegrepen. (more…)

Pisac is a small town in the Sacred Valley and is famous for its colorful Sunday market. When you are in Cusco, I highly recommend you visit Pisac. There are a few ways to get to Pisac.  You can either book a private tour (a bit pricy) or you can take a Tour to the Sacred Valley of the Incas. On this tour you will

visit all the highlights of this famous Valley, including Pisac, but also Ollantaytambo, Chincheros and Urubamba.  You will have a guide, a bus and you will conveniently visit many tourist sites on one single day.

However, you can also go to Pisac by yourself, on a local bus. This takes more time but it is a really nice experience.

That’s what we did! We went to Pisac on a Sunday, early in the morning. (more…)

Festival of the Sun Lights up the City of Cusco

Peru and the stunning city of Cusco are making up once more for the last and biggest event of the Fiestas de Cusco that take place every year in the month of June: the Inti Raymi  Festival.   

The Inti Raymi procession begins with an image of the Inca Emperor on his throne in Qorikancha, the ancient Temple of the sun. The celebration then proceeds to the Plaza de Armas and finishes in Sacsayhuaman, some of the most well-known ruins that overlook the city of Cusco. Here there is a reenactment of the ancient traditions, performed by more than 500 locals who have received the honor of participating in the most revered festival in Cusco.

Experimentar Celebración india nativa en Perú: Qoyllur Rit'i
Tuesday June 10, 2014 - Posted by

Visitar el Perú en el mes de junio , sobre todo si te encuentras en Cusco es una aventura cotidiana, ya que es justo este mes cuando las fiestas están en su pico más alto. Junto con Qoyllur Rit’i, están las celebraciones del puente de Q’eswachaka, Corpus Christi, y el más importante, el Inti Raymi, que se celebra el el 24 de junio cada año.

El Festival de Qoyllur Rit’i – Estrella de la nieve, es único en muchos sentidos, y ofrece una experiencia que viajeros del Perú y del mundo nunca olvidarán. La celebración comienza el sábado, la gente camina en el frío, por un camino extremo y oscuro con el fin de llegar al Valle del Sinakara, cerca de la localidad de Mahuayani y el pico del Ausangate (6.372 metros sobre el nivel del mar), donde la celebración del Festival Rit’i Qoylllur se llevará a cabo. La zona se llena con más de 10.000 participantes en el festival: la mayoría de ellos son la gente local, pero también hay algunos turistas nacionales y algunos extranjeros que llegan para participar en este gran evento. Muchos vienen con un pedido especial, esperando que el Señor de Qoyllur Rit’i responda, y otros simplemente vienen pidiendo la gracia.
