You will also get a chance to stroll around the streets and mingle with the local population in tiny villages scattered across the rich and colorful country side. The surrounding landscape is simply enchanting and you will certainly feel the presence of the Pachamama, revered by the indigenous people of the Andes: a fertiliy goddness who presides over planting and harvesting and embodies the mountains.
It’s time to hit the road and embark upon an unforgettable trip!
