Experiential Tourism in Moray and Misminay 1 Day

Duration 1 Day
Difficulty Easy
Altitude 3500 m.s.n.m
Price: From

The tranquil countryside community of Misminay is found approximately 33 miles out from the bustling city of Cusco. By road, the journey takes around 1 hour and 20 minutes, allowing you to escape the city and ascend to an impressive altitude of 12,140 feet above sea level.

As you venture towards Misminay, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the neighboring district of Maras, known for its stunning unique and natural Andean landscapes, as well as the privilege of being home to Cusco’s most expansive starlit skies.

Misminay stands as a refuge for ancestral traditions, where families maintain their profound connection with nature, preserving a way of life that has been cherished for generations.

Objective of the workshops: To showcase the rich cultural heritage passed down through the ages that has been ardently preserved by the community, and to provide insight into their traditional crafts and daily life through immersive experiences in each workshop session.

Duration: The duration of these workshops typically ranges from 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the level of interest and participation from our visitors. As you move through different locations within the community, you’ll engage in a variety of activities, including: agriculture, textile craftsmanship, a scenic hike to the Moray viewpoint, and the art of adobe creation.

Itinerary

Agricultural Workshop

In this workshop, we will be able to appreciate and take part in, according to the time and agricultural calendar of the community, various agricultural activities via ancestral techniques and traditional Andean tools such as the lampa, chaquitaclla, yunta, and the oxen. Additionally, not only will they will explain the different types of crops they cultivate, but we will go on to taste some of them as well.

Textile Workshop

In this workshop, we will be able to live the ancestral process of making Andean textiles, made of sheep wool that has been dyed with plants, minerals, and other natural ingredients, through a practice called “away,” using homemade tools such as small wooden boards and animal bones. Not only will we have the opportunity to learn about the traditional techniques used in the preparation of their materials, but also about the extraction of wool and the use of natural dyes. This activity is carried out by women.

Hike to Moray Viewpoint

We will venture up to the highest part of the community, from which you will be able to see the entire archaeological complex of Maras as well as a privileged view of beautiful landscapes of snow-capped mountains and the main Apus.

Excellent - keep it going The more that is said about this team is definitely less. Jhon and I had been in touch for the last six months to draw this trip and since then to now when it is in conceptualisation it has been top notch professional with a touch of personal with them checking on my well-being etc. Abel came in once I arrived at Lima and since then has been my support. Guys this is a tour operator must to be considered. Infact I have met so many in Cusco who asked me of my trip details and I have no hesitations in recommending them. Bravo

Ótimo passeio! Fizemos o passeio para Machu Picchu e tudo foi incrível, nós buscaram no horário combinado no hotel, o carro e motorista eram ótimos. Eles cuidaram de reservar as passagens de trem e ônibus e os ingressos para vista à Machu Picchu e tudo saiu perfeito. O guia da vista também foi excelente, muito atencioso e solicitou, além de ótimo fotografo. Tudo foi impecável!

Merveilleux, foncez ! Que dire à part un grand merci. Nous avons contacté l’agence la veille, ils nous ont répondu directement en nous proposant des expéditions sur mesure selon nos envies et nos disponibilités (2 jours d’expéditions : 1. Vallées sacrés des incas et 2. Machu Picchu). Abel s’est rendu disponible pour nous expliquer tous les détails avant le départ et même pendant les expéditions. Nous avons passé deux jours incroyable, tout était planifié, nous n’avions plus qu’à visiter et s’émerveiller. Le tout pour un prix raisonnable ! Nous recommandons ! (Francais 22 & 26 ans)
