Our Peru travel agency invites you to Paucartambo, located at 110 km from the city of Cuzco and considered as the "Summit of the World". It leads to one of the last wild spaces in the world: the Manu National Parc, a biosphere reserve. Paucartambo is a folkloric province of Cuzco and of Peru. The festivities of the "Virgin of Carmen" are celebrated between the 15th and the 18th of July. With Chaskiventura - Peu Holidays join in this religious celebration which originates from the colonial time. Of all the Virgins of Carmen venerated in Peru, The Paucartambo Virgin of Carmen is worth a special attention for her singular beauty, her supernatural charm, and for the great affection the countrymen hold to her. The display of colorful dances and processions are an extraordinary shade of one of the largest manifestations of faith in Peru. During the Paucartambo celebration, at dawn, a lot of pilgrims go to a place called "Tres Cruces" - at 5000 meters above sea level - to observe a spectacular sunrise. It is a nice symbol of a new faith era for the world under the auspices of the Blessed Virgin.
