You will visit one of the communities in the Lamay Mountains and learn about local life and customs, as well as contribute to the sustainable development of the community.
We will meet at Lamay to coordinate the visit and you will go in our vehicle to the community, where they will welcome us warmly and share with us their customs. You will participate in a spontaneous agricultural task and learn about the different varieties of native plants and crops and about the traditional tools and techniques in practice. After the activity you will have a typical lunch, based on the products that the community produces. In the afternoon, the women of the community will share with you the whole process of textile art, very important in their family dynamics, and you will talk with them about their customs and their role in the field. In the afternoon you will return to Lamay to go back to our hotel or to the next destination.
What makes this experience unique?
The community day is an experience that allows us to spontaneously connect with an authentic group of people and learn about their traditional culture and their real intention to connect with the world and also learn from the visitors. It is an opportunity to share with authenticity. All this in an open environment and with spectacular landscapes of the Sacred Valley
My name is Franco Negri, I was born in Lima, I studied tourism and hotel management at San Martin de Porres University and I have been living in Cusco for 25 years. My motivation is to contribute to the conservation of nature and communities through responsible tourism and other activities coherent with the destination.
After so many years seeing how tourism has had a negative impact there is only one way to maintain our activity and that is to have an inclusive thinking and educate the traveler that the destination belongs to the people who inhabit it.
