We are at 9,000 feet, (2,000 feet below Cusco) the air is clean and refreshing. There are no city sounds, no vapor trails, just nature at its best. The Sacred River is 5 mins walk away, Munay Medicine is an ideal setting for tranquil reflection, meditation and integration of the plant medicines.
We will pick you up from Cusco airport and bring you to Tambo del Caminante in the Sacred Valley.
Munay Medicine is surrounded by the Andes mountains and overlooked by the magnificent Apu Pitusiray. Walid Barham Ode lives in Calca, 11 km from Munay, he spends a lot of time on the mountain and has written a book 'Realismo Mitico' (Mythical Realism) about the mountain being an energy portal used by the Inca. The book is presently only available in Spanish but an English translation is being prepared. Apu Pitusiray is a sacred mountain and for energy sensitive people it is certainly very special.
See the sights!
Museums, mines, mountains the very special ruins of Machu Picchu are all on our doorstep, plus the plethora
of ancient sites that make up the sacred valley. This really is a very special part of Peru.
We are also only 10 mins away from the fascinating Museum Inkariy that describes the nine civilisations from the Caral to the Inka that controled this area for over 14,000 years. Unless you are a historian specialising in South American
history you will certainly become 'enlightened' by Inkariy.
We are an hour from Naupa Igesia a fascinating site mentioned in Ancient Origins and shown here on the right.
We are also only 10km from Urubamba market where we buy locally grown fruit and vegetables. Some guests like to accompany us to the market where, unlike western supermarkets, you will not find two carrots that look the same. The food here does taste different.
We are 13 degrees south of the equator and 2,000 feet below Cusco. This provides a fairly constant climate, we do not have the traditional four seasons, we have two, wet and dry.
It is difficult to be precise as to when the seasons change as recently things have been changing. However, November to April can be considered the wet season and April to November the dry season. This does not mean it doesn't rain during the dry season as it can and there are mostly dry days in the wet season. So it is more likely to rain September through April but in the last couple of years mostly in the afternoons and only for a couple of hours and it is colder in the evenings when the sun goes down, however we have a large log fire. During the rainy season it is warmer in the evenings.
