If you would like to have a tailor made tour, that is possible also in coordination with Jesús. Please fill out the form below with your questions and proposals.
1. SacsayhuamanThis tour is easy to realize as it is just above Cusco. Recommended if you would like to have had the Gamarra vision and explanation before visitng all the other vestiges in for example the Sacred Valley, or Machu Picchu and other Inca vestiges.
Learn on the place itself "the sacred code of the stone", something that will enable you to also understand the lithic expression of other archaeological remains that are between the most important and ancient of the World. This first tour comprises the following archaeological locations:
-Chincana Grande: A big piece of rock that exceeds 1,200 tons of weight, located at the end of a tunnel that connects to the centre of Cusco.
Admire the sophisticated technology that was used to make the forms of a modern conception in this rock and for which a technology of moulds and heat was used.
-Chincana Chica: A small tunnel with highly vitrified rock; the molecular change of the stone that gave this effect and that shows the a superior technology of ancient man.
-Suchuna Hill: A solid hill of diorite in which the culture of the origin is reflected, for exmaple with the admirable monolithic altar that shows the quality of the design and technology of the ancient architect.
-Sacsayhuaman "Tower": The vestige of what was known as "the Tower of Babel", constructions with enormous blocks of stone. Why the relation with Inca architecture is 'disproportional', Jesús will explain you here!
Tour 2. Kenko, Tambomachay, zone X, Amaru Machay, Puca PucaraThis is also close to Cusco. Description of tour: includes the important rests of what today is known as the Archaeological Park of Sacsayhuaman, expressed in the following locations of archaeological interest:
-Q'enqo: we will enter in the interior of the gigantic stone where you can admire a sacred altar built in one piece, and where vitrification is present, which shows that temperatures were used for attaining it.
-Zone X: vast archaeological complex little frequented by traditional tourism, in which labyrinths of stone are present. Important vestiges of a civilization that corresponded to the origins of humanity, and built on by subsequent cultures.
-Puca Pucara: Archaeological building which is composed of three overlapping types of architecture, located strategically betweenthe Sacred Valley of the Incas and Cusco. A pyramidal expression with circular base. An unforgettable view from here.
-Tambomachay: Beautiful archaeological place, a pure expression of the garden of Eden with water sources that since it's origins continue to sprout uninterruptedly. Also a place where we see stone examples that show the true historical order of the building styles.
-Amaru Machay: "the biggest pyramidal building of the world in one single stone". Enter several caves and check how the floor, walls, ceiling and furniture are made of a single piece of rock. A breathtaking legacy of superior ancestors.
Tour 3, Sacred Valley A: Tipón, Pikillacta, Pisac, UrcoThis first tour to the Sacred Valley of the Incas include the following archaeological sites:
-Tipón: located at the top and back of the sacred mountain called "Pachatusan" meaning "column or beam, that connects the sky with the Earth". At this place ceremonies of purification rites with water are held. In the midst of unforgettable landscapes and architecture.
-Pikillacta: Ancient city of Inca origin, located on top of the beautiful lagoon of Huacarpay, which will show you how these dreamy places were designed.
-Pisaq (or Pisac): Small town where you will find in the middle of the picturesque city a market of high quality handicrafts and with low price in an admirable variety. The archeological remains of the most ancient history are in the upper part of the city. Here you can check that there are five types of overlapping architectures with reference to it's great antiquity. Admire this architectural marvel, located in the interior of the Sacred Valley of 'the origin'.
-Urko (or Urco): get to know this manufacture of the first man, the lithic allegory to the "Deception of the serpent to the woman", located in the centre of the garden of Eden (Sacred Valley), in Urco, Calca.
Tour 4, Sacred Valley B: Chinchero, Moray, Urubamba, Ollantaytambo-Chinchero: beautiful and picturesque town that has two main attractions; the mixed architecture of the village itself, and the second which in our case is the more important, and that consists of large quantities of the lythic presence that is characteristic for the most ancient civilization called Hanan Pacha. This style represents "the sacred" and is somewhat further from the central square of Chinchero, a place where tourists normally do not go.
-Moray: Town of breathtaking beauty, also located in the upper part of the "Sacred Valley", here we find circular terraces, inserted into the Earth at different levels. It is not known with certainty of its function. As neither the meaning of "Moray". Alfredo Gamarra proposed that it could have come from the quechua toponymy "Meray" which means "multiplication by generative way", which was related to the place of the procreation of the first ancestors, one of the purposes of the "garden of Eden".
-Urubamba: According to Alfredo Gamarra, the cradle of the Egyptian civilization, the "Arvant" of the Persians, where the first ethnic groups "Arag" originated, which in Hebrew is called "Adam" or "humanity". Great place for lunch, as you can enjoy exquisite dishes of international cuisine, in a normally pleasant climate.
-Ollantaytambo: Archaeological relic that contains valuable information of the civilization of the origin. Here is the very important stone monument called in quechua "Pakaricmanta Rimactampu" or "monument which talks about the origin of things", which contains stony representations of: "the six periods or days of creation" and of the human dynasties from Adam until Noah. Feel the experience of being at "The sacred places of the origin".
Tour 5, Machu Picchu or YllampuThe theme of this tour this based on the earthly location of what was "The abode of the gods emperors" referred to as "Tartesso" for the Phoenicians and known by Greeks and Romans as "Olympus", which would have been located in the "far East", at the top of the "Paradeisos". In the case of the abode of the gods of the ancient Peruvian emperors, is was called "Yllampu", a Quechua word that comes from the conjunction of "Illa" which means "God" and "Llampu" which means soft or comfortable, deriving that "Yllampu" would be "The comfortable abode of the gods". According to the proposal we offer you it would be located upon a mountain top in the Andes, near Cusco, the same that dominated Machu Picchu only in 1911 when Bingham re-discovered this marvellous city, now one of the new world wonders. It's really a transcendental experience, to pass through the various vestiges of this privileged city located atop of "the mountains of the Parawayso". For all those who visit, it is an unforgettable experience.
