Day 1: Power Places of Titicaca.
Today we discover the ancient AIMARA altars as we walk the
sacred path on the Magical Serpent and explore the Ajayu
Marka, a dimensional world with its doors. Continue to
Copamaya for a salutation to the spirit of Titikaka and at
the end of the afternoon, visit the Temple of Fertility.
Lake Titikaka and the House of the Golden Sun Disc. Peru is
a land steeped in ancient wisdom that is vital for our
planet during these transitional times. Life in the Inkan
empire was measured by a thousand year cosmic cycle called
an Inti, which means 'Sun'. This thousand year cycle was
then divided into halves, each of which was referred to as a
Pachakuti ("he who transform the earth"). The cosmic vision
of the Andean world is the conception of duality that is in
permanent opposition, but complementary, like the principle
of ying/yang that expresses this opposition. This same
principle of duality applies to each Pachakuti. However,
Pachakuti also refers to the transitional time that divided
each Pachakuti and this is characterized as a time of great
During the five hundred years of the eighth Pachakuti,
Pachacuteq, the greatest spiritual leader of the Inkas and
the builder of Machu Picchu ruled. This was a time of light
when the Inka Empire flourished and there was expansion and
The ninth Pachakuti, on the opposite side of the duality,
brought with it the five hundred years of
darkness when the Spanish invaded the Andes. We are now
entering the tenth Pachakuti, which the Andean people refer
to as the returning of Pachacuteq, the returning of the
Light. This is the time when the etheric crystal cities of
the fourth dimension such as the lost golden city of Paititi
and the eternal etheric city under lake Titikaka will again
be available to us.
One of the Solar Discs in the Inka time that was at Cusco,
and placed in the Qorikancha, the main
Temple of the Sun, stayed there until the coming of the
Spanish. At that time, it was returned to Lake Titikaka and
placed in the Eternal Etheric City inside the Lake. In the
legend of their origin, this is the place from where the
first Inkas, Mallku Qapak and Mama Oqllo, entered the Earth.
Mallku Qapak and Mama Oqllo
The Solar Disc was used in the capacity of a cosmic computer
that received light information directly from the Universal
Mind Source, Wiracocha, at the Universe. By entering the
Temple of Illumination and opening themselves, the Inkas
could access the sacred wisdom. During this age of Pachakuti,
the sacred Solar Disc is to be re-activated accessing the
cosmic wisdom. Many of the world's spiritual leaders, as
well as indigenous teachers, acknowledge the energy of the
Andes, which is the expression of the feminine
electromagnetic light, having its center in the Lake
Titicaca. This area is the acknowledged portal through which
the new feminine energies are entering Mother Earth "Pacha
We wonder how pre-Columbian and other great cultures had
precise knowledge of astronomy, of
planetary and sidereal dimensions, without possessing the
technology of today. These ancient peoples built cities with
solar orientation, knew about geographic and magnetic North,
verified the precession of the equinoxes, arrival of the
solstices, passage of the Sun at the zenith, inclination of
the axis of the Earth's rotation axis in accord with the
ecliptic (Earth's orbital plane), and elliptical orbit of
the Earth around the Sun. This is the mystery of the
ancients, awakening wonder and awe as we visit Peru's sacred
Day 2: Amanatani Island – The Center of Light.
This morning we cross the highest navigable lake in the
world to the island of Amantani. The spiritual leader of the
community will led us in a POWER OFFERING for Pachamama.
This night we share with the locals and stay in their homes.
Amantani Island is located 38 km from the city of Puno,
3,810 meters above sea level, 3,5 hours by
motorboat. Amantani is a beautiful island with warm and
hospital inhabitants. Its greatest attraction is based on
the social, ethnic and archaeological aspects. Among its
most important and well-known places are the temples of
Pachatata and Pachamama dedicated to the cult of the earth.
From there on you can have an excellent panoramic view of
the lake, as well as a view of the oriental mountain range
and the Bolivian side with its mountain range.
Lake Titikaka Legend: Titikaka ("Rock of the Puma") was,
according to Andean legend, the birthplace of civilization.
Wiracocha, the creator, brought light into a dark world by
directing the Sun, Moon and stars to rise up out of the lake
and take their place in the sky. With time the Sun and Moon
had children who also rose from the depths of the lake.
These new people were sent out from Titikaka to the four
corners of the earth, with Mallku Qapac and his sister Mama
Oqllo and their family clan being sent off to inhabit the
Cusco region. Inka legend believed that Mallku was the first
Inka and a direct descendent from the Sun. The supposed
location in Titikaka of the birthplace of the Sun, Moon and
Mallku Qapac is actually on the Bolivian side of the lake on
the islands named the Isla del Sol (Island of the Sun) and
Isla de la Luna (Island of the Moon).
Lake Titikaka statistics: The world's highest lake navigable
to large vessels, lying at 12,500 feet (3,810 m) above sea
level in the Andes Mountains, astride the border between
Peru to the Northwest and Bolivia to the Southeast. Titikaka
is the second largest lake of South America (after Maracaibo).
It covers 3,200 square miles (8,600 square km) and extends
for a distance of 120 miles (190 km). It is 40 miles (65 km)
across at its widest point. A narrow strait, Tiquina,
separates the lake into two bodies of water. The smaller, in
the Southeast, is called Lake Wiñay Marka which belongs to
Bolivia; the larger, in the Northwest, is called Lake
Chucuito and belongs to Peru.
The lake averages between 460 and 600 feet (140 and 180 m)
in depth, but the bottom tilts sharply toward the Peruvian
shore, reaching its greatest recorded depth of 920 feet (280
m) around the Soto island in the lake's Northeast side.
More than Forty islands rise from Titikaka's waters. The
largest, Titikaka Island (Spanish: Isla de Titikaka, also
called Isla del Sol), lies just off the tip of the
Copacabana Peninsula in Bolivia. There are several islands
that can be accessed from Puno City. The most popular of
these are the islands of Uros, Taquile and Amantani.
Ruins on the shore and on the islands attest to the previous
existence of one of the oldest civilizations known in the
Americas, antedating the Christian era. The chief site is at
Tiwanaku, Bolivia, at the Southern end of the lake.
Day 3: Temple of the Light.
Early in the morning we ascend to the temples of Pachatata
and Pachamama where we present our offering to Pachamama and
to life. After some lunch we boat back to the continent and
will have our transportation to Puno and have a free
Puno City is located in the Southeast corner of Peru, on the
shores of the magnificent Lake Titikaka and only 126km from
the frontier with Bolivia. At 3,830m in altitude, Puno is a
melting pot of Andean cultures including the Aimara from the
South and Quechua from the North. This has earned Puno the
title of 'Folkloric Capital of Peru' which it lives up to
well with its huge number and variety of traditional
fiestas, dances and music.
The city, whose full name is San Carlos de Puno, was founded
in 1668 following the discovery of nearby silver mines.
Prior to this, Puno had been a small stopping off place
between the much larger silver mines at Potosi in Bolivia
and to the way to Lima.
Today, Puno is a predominately agricultural region. Its main
economic activities are cultivating potatoes, barley and
quinoa, as well as raising cattle, sheep, llamas and alpaca.
If you're looking for Peruvian knitwear you'll find the
markets in Puno have a huge selection and are probably the
cheapest in Peru.
