During these Peru Holidays in Ethnotourism module, you will discover an ancient religious custom which is only practiced by the inhabitants of the Andes. The ritual is associated with soil fertility and the worship of the Apus (tutelary mountains). The ceremony venerates the integration of men and nature. Each community brings its specific blade that they present to the Señor del Quyllur Rit’i, in a sanctuary located on the foot of the glacier of Ausangate. All along the way, all the Andean communities are dancing and playing music in an infinite choreography. Chaskiventura - Peru Travel Agency offers you to discover the main ceremony held at the foot of the Nevado or the Apu. It attracts thousands of pilgrims and visitors from Peru and Bolivia who maintain and renew the tradition, faith and worship to the Lord of Qoyllurit'i and the Sacred Apu Sinaq'ara. This festival is one of the three great religious-peasant pilgrimages that survived since pre-Hispanic times and continues to mobilize the people of the Southern Andes. Do not wait any longer to join in one of the most important indigenous festivals in America during your Peru trip.
