Day 2: Puno - Uros - Amantani (B, L D)
Wake up early this morning to revel in the morning sun before embarking on private boat trip on the tranquil waters of Lake Titicaca to the Uros Islands. These islands of Totora reeds are home to the Uros people who, according to legend, existed before the sun when the earth was cold and dark. Once used as a mobile defense system, the islands now attract visitors from all over and offer an opportunity to learn about ancient practices and traditions and a chance to admire the simple way of life of the people. Although the Uros claim to have “black blood” which makes them impervious to the cold, they are a warm and inviting people and we will all be welcomed with open arms and hearts.
Among the islands, we also visit Amantaní, a circular island about 9 square km in size, known as the “Island of the Kantuta”, after the national flower which grows plentifully here. The island is home to two mountain peaks, Pachatata (Father Earth) and Pachamama (Mother Earth), and contains ancient Inca and Tiwanaku ruins on top of both. Agriculture is a main way of life here evidenced by the terraced hillsides which are planted with wheat, quinoa, potatoes, and other vegetables. Fluffy Alpacas can also be spotted grazing the slopes. The local Amantaní are renowned for their beautiful textiles and ceramics as well as their heartwarming and welcoming natures. On this island, we will connect with the sacred balance of feminine and masculine energies at the Temple of Pachatata and Pachamama. We will prepare a sacred offering to heal any disharmony and to help balance the masculine and feminine polarities within ourselves to achieve harmony.
We will also enjoy a most unique experience as we overnight here on the island with a local “homestay”. While the comforts will be basic (sleeping bags will be provided), it is a great honor to be welcomed into the community and homes of the local Uros people who welcome us with open arms and hearts. It will also be a wonderful opportunity to gain a greater understanding, appreciation, and respect for their way of life and traditions.(Overnight in Amantaní homestay)
Day 3: Amantani - Puno (B, L)
This morning we leave the island of Amantaní and our new families, and journey for an hour to a pristine area unimpeded by tourists by the shores of Lake Titicaca. Here we will gather for a sacred ceremony to complete our healing process in preparation for our return home. This will be our final opportunity to give thanks to Mother Earth and all those who have nurtured us and blessed us on this journey. Gathered in reverence we will show our greatest appreciation to the Great Mother and also have a chance to thank our new spirit brothers and sisters for their company and friendship on this transformational journey. We will also learn how to protect our aura and also how to keep our vibrational energy high and constant so that we can continue to heal ourselves. Later in the evening, we will enjoy our final farewell dinner to share stories, laughters and tears, give thanks to Pachamama and Pachatata, and to relive this most amazing journey.(Overnight in Puno at the Royal Inn Puno Hotel or Similar)
