Don't miss the opportunity to visit Chincheros and the Ccor Ccor community with this day trip from Cusco!
After breakfast we will pick you up at your hotel at around 8:00am and drive you through the Sacred Valley of the Incas, heading to the village of Chincheros and then to the Community of Ccor Ccor about 20 minutes away from Chincheros.
Upon arrival we will be greeted with local music and dance. After the welcoming, we will begin our activities in the fields. The activity will depend on the time of the year. Such as:
Agriculture: As an agriculturally based community the most common crops are potatoes and quinoa. Volunteers assist with planting, harvesting, storing, and transporting crops.
Livestock: Volunteers help by feeding and taking care of the animals and sometimes milking the cows owned by the host family.
Textiles: Volunteers have the opportunity to learn about traditional weaving skills and natural dyes by working with the women who create traditional textile products to sell at local markets.
The activities are followed by an organic lunch and a demonstration of the textile from local people.
You will be back in Cusco at around 4:00pm.
