The timing of this trip has been planned just before the Inti Raymi festival.
Inti Raymi (Quechua - Sun Festival) Is a tradition celebration of the Incan Empire in honor of the god Inti (Sun) the most revered deity in Incan Religion . It is a celebration of the Winter Solstice *.The shortest day of the year and the Incan New Year, when the hours would lengthen again….. At dawn on the Solstice, the Incas would take off their shoes and face north-east in anticipation of the rising Sun. When the Sun appeared, they would crouch down and blow respectful kisses, before raising two golden cups of Chicha in honor of Inti (a traditional drink traditionally made from grains, maize + fruits). Inti Raymi is still celebrated in Indigenous cultures throughout the Andes and is said to symbolize the mythical origin of the Incan people . The festival lasts for many days with colourful dances and processions, prayers to Pachamama (Our Divine Mother Earth) to ensure a good harvest season.
*In territories South of the Equator the months of June/ July are Winter months.
