Greetings all, Francisco Morales-Bermudez & Salim Rollins are delighted to invite you to the journey of a lifetime – a trekking journey through the Ausangate mountain range in the Peruvian Andes! Ausangate is one of the sacred mountains or Apus of the Inca people. The journey consists of a 5-day/4-night trek through Ausangate; 6 nights at Willka T’ika Wellness Retreat & Boutique Hotel in the Sacred Valley; a tour of Machu Picchu historic sanctuary; optional spa treatments & spiritual readings (including massage, herbal bath, and cocoa leaf reading); optional day trips in the Sacred Valley; yoga and Thai massage workshops.




The trekking portion of the journey will be facilitated by Experienced Munaycha, a boutique trekking outfitter with more than 20 years of experience leading groups through the Andes. All meals will be prepared by their phenomenal cooking staff. Meals can accommodate all dietary needs. Guest’s bags, tents and sleeping bags will be carried on horseback by our tour guides. Tents and sleeping bags will be prepared by the outfitter. Our goal is to make the trek as accessible and comfortable as possible and enable participants to enjoy the scenic experience of the surrounding glaciers; lagoons; indigenous animals including llamas and alpacas, and the Quechua people who have lived in the region for millenia.

Having experienced the majesty of the sacred Andes and being settled back in the Sacred Valley, the journey shifts its focus to an exploration of traditional and contemporary Peruvian art.
