Enjoy and live, the Inca customs and traditions of the Willoq and Patacancha community, planting, sewing, cooking and having fun with their typical dances.

The tour starts at 06:00 in Cusco and ends around 19.00h (full day)

When we arrive at Willoq, the villagers will welcome us with songs and dances. It is striking that some of them are wearing white clothes with long sleeves of the same color.

With respect to their dance, it is the wifala, which imitates the movement of the huallata (the Andean goose), and which at the same time means joy and Inca nation. This culture introduces the tourist into a completely different world with a reality that goes beyond our imagination.

At the same time, the weavers are very well organized in a center of Textileria of which 260 craftswomen of other communities are part.

This tradition comes from generation to generation as the weavers learned from their mothers and in the same way, they instilled their daughters in this same trade.

The men play similar roles and a large part of them are porters on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, and many of them complete their workdays in this way. These men are strong and very well fed thanks to the green coca leaf that makes their body structure resistant to the hard work involved in being a porter.

Every day of the week, the weavers' place is active, but you must visit it preferably on Saturdays, when they have prepared to receive the travelers, where they can share ideas and customs.

Patacancha is thirty minutes away from Willoq, there is also an association of weavers, women who on average only speak Quechua and like their neighbors, they weave wonders such as llicllas, chalinas, ponchos, bags, blankets, of a fineness that to the natural fiber (sheep or alpaca) can give the texture of a silk to all their textiles.

It is also very important to know that the materials used to give color and life to the fabrics are obtained from plants in the area that provide the precise colors for their crafts, their designs in each craft has a unique meaning in itself.

The approximate duration of the activity is 4 to 5 hours, then we will have a typical lunch of the place and after a rest and more coexistence we will return to Cusco, we will return to Ollantaytambo to take the train to Aguas Calientes

Once we arrive in Aguas Calientes, our staff will be waiting to transfer you to the hotel.
