Recently I found myself at the foot of Machu Picchu, glass of Chicha (fermented corn beer) in hand, watching two Peruvians dig a hole in the dirt and line it with rocks from the Vilcanota river. This hole would be our oven, and was filled with locally sourced Andean meats and vegetables like potatoes, oca, yellow peppers, and yams.
What better way to explore the sacred elements of Machu Picchu than with a real Peruvian shaman? Sumaq, a modern luxury boutique hotel at the foot of Machu Picchu, is offering new private tours of Machu Picchu with shaman and translator, where guests will walk in the footsteps of the ancient Inca’s and explore the mystical elements of Pachamama.
Machu Picchu. Um passeio pela antiga cidade andina, com direito a trem, lhamas e falta de ar
Brasil - July 2014
Hidden away at the foot of Machu Picchu, on the banks of the Vilcanota River, you’ll find Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel. By far the best place to stay in Aguas Calientes, this eco-luxury resort offers Peruvian cooking classes and traditional Pachamanca cooking classes.
Sumaq Machu Picchu Luxury Hotel offers innovative and authentic Peruvian culinary experiences for guests. With new local Peruvian chef, Carlos Pardo Figueroa, the property has introduced exclusive “Pisco Classes” where guests create three different types of Pisco Sours, along with the opportunity to attend Ceviche School and create their own ceviche with locally sourced ingredients.
Tive o privilégio – ENORME – de ir duas vezes a Machu Picchu. Digo enorme porque tive a minha época de achar que Machu Picchu era um daqueles locais tipo “viu-tá visto”, e quem tinha ido uma vez não precisava ir de novo. Ledo engano – minha segunda ida até lá aconteceu em condições e épocas do ano bem diferentes da primeira, e se Machu Picchu não era 100% novidade, redescobrí-la com novos olhos foi quase uma segunda “primeira vez”.
