"The Other Wonder of Cusco"
I would like to introduce you " The other New Wonder of Cusco ", an Ancient, Mystical and Magical Andean region on the Espinar province located 242 Km south/west from Cusco (in the way to Puno) at 3,938.- m. above sea level. Espinar and its great richness of culture, tradition, biodiversity of the plateau (Altiplano), high mountains, rivers, Inca and Pre-Inca archaeological sites (k'ana culture), beautiful natural scenery, etc. can be your new destination. Espinar is offering now a wonderful alternative for tourists in search of adventure (hiking, climbing, rafting, biking, horse riding, etc.), culture, history, shamanism, mysticism, spiritualism, Andean esoteric practices, powerful energy vortexes, etc. The Incas developed an advanced awareness of energy and the knowledge of how to utilize each vibration for growth and transformation. Each temple was built at a specific point of powerful energy vortex, many of this temples today still remain in Cusco and its surroundings, so the archaeological sites that belonged to the K'ANA CULTURE are not an exception, they also had knowledge and understunding about energy, you will feel a great and powerful energy in almost every ancient site and all around THE THREE CANYONS – SUYKUTAMBO. The K'ana culture as the Inca or Qhechua cultures that lived in Peru thousands of years ago have passed on a rich heritage( legacy) of rituals, ceremonies, healing practices and other esoteric information that is just as valuable to our spiritual growth on our days as it was during their time.
Sites you can visit:
