Join us on a full-day tour as we bring you to participate in a Pachamama ritual and be spiritually connected to Mother Nature.

Highlights

  • Renew the energy in your body
  • Visit the Pecugue Waterfall
  • Go through an ancestral ceremony of the Ecuadorians

Itinerary

You will start this tour at 7:45 am, where you will be welcomed by the “Yachak” and be given a wristband as a souvenir. After this brief meeting, you will continue to a rural restaurant for an Andean-style breakfast, and you will head to the Laguna de Mojanda right after that.

At 10:00 am, there will be the opening of the ceremony where a geographic, spatial, historical, spiritual, patrimonial, sacred and ancestral explanation of the place will be given, including a brief discussion about the importance of having a purpose. You will then continue with the tobacco ceremony for the harmonization of energies and delivery of the offerings to the Pachamama, before walking to the place of the offering accompanied by an Andean melody.

At 13:00 pm, the offering will be presented and delivered to the Pachamama, after a reading of Coca. And at 15:00 pm, the Pambamesa (community table where food is shared in a great round)  will be held, before heading back to the starting point. There will also be time to have a short swim in the Laguna de Mojanda, before heading back with the dance of Inty Raymi accompanied by Andean melodies.

To cap off the tour, you will share about your experience on this path voluntarily and a scarf will be given to you as a souvenir, before returning to Otavalo and having an Andean-style dinner.
