– WHERE LIFE BEGINS –
The APU of the dreams, the medicine and the life of our ancestors, where life is born on the heights of this APU. We do a pilgrimage to this sacred place with much respect and love in order to feel the energy and the medicine of our APUS, which will open their energy channels to us. MAMACOCA, with her sacred medicine and properties, will guide us on our way and we will spend 3 days healing our pains. During these days we will offer the sacred Coca leaves, Tobacco, incense… to APU AUSANGATE and visit the sacred lakes to drink their medicine, thus nourishing ourselves to be reborn.

After three hours we reach the last community near APU AUSANGATE, this place is at 4300 meters above sea level and a bit cold, but the medicine hot springs located there will keep us warm.
