For those who don’t know, “ceques” are sacred energetic lines that unite different sacred and important points for their energetic, ancestral, historical and cultural value. Walking through these ceques are the “Pukios” – sources of water, or places of sacred powers. Join us on a full-day tour as we bring you on a Yaku (water) Ceque tour to unite yourself spiritually with the Pachamama.
The element water signifies the beginning of life, and through this tour, you will be able to find the energetic renewal that you need. On this tour, you will undergo a ceremony of renewal and restoration of your energy body, under the guidance of a “Yachak” of extensive experience. This will allow you to recognize and dignify your Pachamama through an offering of flowers.

You will start the full-day tour at 07:45 am meeting the “Yachak”, where you will be given a bracelet as a souvenir before you start. Breakfast will be at a rural restaurant, Andean style, before heading to the Laguna de Mojanda.
The opening of the ceremony will then commence at 10:00 am, followed by a geographic, spatial, historical, spiritual, patrimonial, sacred and ancestral explanation of the place. After that, the ceremony of the tobacco for the harmonization of the energies and delivery of the offerings to the Pacha Mama will begin, before a horseback riding trip.
At 13:00 pm, the offering will be presented and delivered to the Pacha Mama, after you undergo a reading of Coca.
At 15:00 pm, the “Pambamesa” will begin. This is a big community table where food will be shared. Afterwhich, you will start your walk back to the starting point, singing an Andean melody along the way and a short swim in the Laguna de Mojanda.
To cap off the trip, you will dance the Inti Raymi and then if you want, share your experience in a circle. After you deliver the scarves as part of the experience, you will continue back to the city of Otavalo to have an Andean-style dinner before ending the entire event.
