Dear Vedic Travelers!
This is an invitation to an incredible adventure. Destination-Peru! It is an 8 day/7 night trip. The retreat center in the Sacred Valley is gorgeous, the hotel in Cusco is central and beautiful. We are able to acclimate to the altitude because we descend into the Sacred Valley, so by the end of the week when we stay in Cusco, we will be fine.
Most meals are included, all entrances, guides and domestic transfers, domestic flights and train travel are also included. Yoga most days. See below for the details. We booked out quickly on our 2022 trip, so please respond soon. Machu Picchu, the highlight of the trip, like the Amazon, is not guaranteed to survive forever. So make hay while the Incan Sun shines and do this! I would LOVE to share this epic adventure with you!
Lots of love,
