Waqrapukara Incredible hike known as andean avatar
Waqrapukara Trek: A sacred and religious precinct of the Incas, the hike to this holy place is not simple hiking, it is to be in contact with nature, mother earth, with mama ccocha, which represents life, purity, just touching it and invoking you can cleanse your soul, pure air free of all pollution, hight mountains know as Apus (protectors) for Andean indigenous people.
Being around Waqrapukara is simply recharging yourself with positive energy, you will feel the fresh wind blowing your face, it is feeling like you are flying or floating in the space.
In a few more minutes you will see some condors fly over your head, I assure you that you will want to stay longer to appreciate the beauty that you have around, but the time is time and sadly we have to leave.
