The trip of a lifetime! My best friend and I chose this tour to celebrate our 30th Birthdays - it was Amazing!!! We had a really nice time visiting Cusco, Machu Picchu and going to the Rainbow Mountain. The tour guides were really nice and we told us a lot about everything. We visited in November and for Machu Picchu this was amazing - it was misty in the morning and sunny by mid-morning, so we got to see it with all weather types. Highly recommend going at 6am and spending most of the day there - circuit 2 and 4 were great! We even hiked up one of the mountains. Carlos, Judy, and Wilson were great and really educated us about each site.

Great way to experience Peru The tour was a great way to experience Cusco, the sacred valley, Machu Picchu and the Vinicunca mountain. We only had 4 full days, and it was the right amount of time. I was there with my best friend celebrating our 30th, so we will always cherish this moment. The tour guides (Carlos, Judy, and Wilson) were very friendly and knowledgeable. They helped us get immersed to the history of the Incas, and made us feel comfortable throughout the trip. The accommodation provided as part of the package was very adequate, and the overall experience was great.

ACTIVITY 2- AGRICULTURE WORKSHOP

The main economic activity is related to agriculture; the entire population is dedicated to the production of traditional crops such as potatoes, barley, oats, beans, wheat, and peas. Small producers use traditional techniques and tools, with intensive use of family labor. They maintain ancestral relationships such as the ayni and minca and very sporadically resort to the payment of salaries; their crops are potatoes, beans, oca, olluco and some grains such as wheat, whose production is subsistence.

Crop rotation in these areas is regulated through a program of crops to be planted in the following years after the potato crop, for a period of 3 to 4 years, to then enter again in rest for a minimum of 3 years, in order to recover their fertility.

The technology is eminently traditional, characterized by the use of yuntas, chaquitaqlla, sectorial rotation of land, associated crops, traditional irrigation, minimal use of inputs, such as fertilizers that result in the levels of agricultural productivity.  Farmers, not having a yoke due to the lack of animals, use a human-powered plow called a tajlla or chaquitaqlla, which is a pointed stick with a slightly bent tip, sometimes made of stone or metal, to carry out their agricultural work.
