Celebrate The Andean Festival of Mother Earth and get £100 off your 2015 Machu Picchu Challenge!

Every year, in the Peruvian Andes, August is recognised as the month of the “Pachamama” or Mother Earth. The celebration consists of a ceremony called “Pago a la Tierra” (payment to the land) where Andean people offer mother earth the best of last year’s produce. Traditionally, it would include corn, wheat, potatoes, coca, but in more recent times also includes sweets, huayruros (mystical seed jungle), wine and animal foetuses – especially llamas. They are all placed together and buried as an offering to ask for a successful harvest in the coming year, to be sure that it will be good and healthy.  Click here to see how Pachamama is celebrated in Peru.

To mark this occasion and to help us all have a successful season of trekking and cycling in the Andes, we are offering a £100 discount* on all of our 2015 Peru challenges!

This includes the popular Trek to Machu Picchu and Cycle Machu Picchu to the Amazon!
