Leisure and activities

Pachamanca Sumaq

For those who wish to experience a culinary tradition of the Incas, Sumaq offers an outdoor culinary experience called Pachamanca, or “Earth Pot.” During the activity, you can see how a traditional Andean meal is prepared, as  stones are placed to form an underground oven for ingredients such as potato, fava beans, aromatic herbs, and different meats. Ingredients are covered with large leaves before the oven is sealed with the earth.

When the ingredients heat and aroma fills the air, lunch is ready to enjoy with a glass of “Chicha de jora” a beverage made of fermented corn. Remember, before to drink, toast with the Mother Earth!
