We know that for many people Peru seem quite far away and knowing that it is a Spanish speaking country, the idea of traveling there by yourself sounds pretty scary. No matter how great is the silent meditation retreat. For that reason Meditation Retreat Peru created an all-inclusive program.
These program takes care of you completely from the moment you leave the plane until you fly back to your home country. In 12 days you will not only see the most important sacred sites like Machu Picchu, Cusco, the sacred valley and Lake Titikaka, but also spend 3 days in a silent meditation retreat in an incredibly beautiful location.
You fly into Cusco where we pick you up from the airport and bring you to your comfortable hotel in the sacred valley. You get to know the other participants of the group with whom you share the peruvian adventure. Time to rest, relax and enjoy the majestic beauty of the andes.
We are visiting Cusco, the ancient Capital of the Incas.
Being a place with a long history, the city has a very special atmosphere. The historic city was build in there shape of a puma, being the energetic center of the Incan empire with many ancient temples and ceremonial sites.
The sacred valley is our base during the first part of the trip. It is located only 45 min from the busy city of Cusco, but is a very different environment. Small towns are nestled below majestic mountains along the Urubamba river. We visit the spiral terraces of Maray, the salt mines of Mares and other impressive places.
One of the many highlights of the tour:
We visit the ancient ceremonial city Machu Pichu and spend the entire day exploring the ruins, surrounded by a magnificent landscape. In the evening we return to our resting place in the sacred valley.
We will spend the day in Pisac, a beautiful little town below an ancient Inca city with a famous temple of the sun at its center. After going for a walk in the ruins, we spend the day exploring the traditional market and enjoying the atmosphere of the town which is also home for hundreds of expats from countries around the world.
Today we are traveling from Cusco to Lake Titicaca where we the silent meditation retreat is held. We are traveling by bus, minivan and boat to the island Amantani. It is a comfortable journey in an impressive landscape. On the island we stay with a local family in a beautiful guest house.
Today is the first day of the 3 day silent meditation retreat.
We spend the days in silence with Meditation and Yoga and are guided by experienced meditation teachers who will give you all necessary instructions. During the retreat we also visit the ancient temples of the island where we will meditate together and let the special atmosphere of the place touch our hearts.
Today is the second day of our silent meditation retreat. The purpose of the retreat is to open and explore our heart. The special atmosphere of the island with a deep ever present silence provides perfect conditions for the retreat.
After a visit to the shores of the lake, we end the silent retreat in the evening with a little ceremony and an opportunity for those who wish to share their experience. Usually the sharing circle is a beautiful heart touching moment that allows us to integrate the profound experience of the retreat.
After breakfast and optional morning meditation, we will bring you to the airport in Juliaca, where the tour ends and from where you can fly back to Lima.

We recommend flying from Lima to Cusco.

Be aware of that when you book your flight to Lima. Here are some of the main companies: www.starperu.com, www.lan.com, www.taca.com, and www.peruvian.pe
There are many buses to Cusco as well. It is a long 22 hour bus ride from Lima to Cusco.
www.cruzdelsur.com is by far the best company. However, they are a little more expensive than others.
