Hatun Karpay (right side)
ANCIENT INITIATION JOURNEY IN PERU
Hatun Karpay means Great Power or Great Transformation. In this spiritual journey you follow a well-defined process in which you undergo a cycle of initiations and rituals that help you train your spirituality, discover your full potential and develop your personal power.
This whole procedure was developed centuries ago by Inka priests. To this day it has been passed down orally from master to student, most recently from Don Benito Qoriwaman, a famous paqo and teacher from a little village near Cusco, to Juan Núñez del Prado.
This Hatun Karpay emphasizes more the masculine aspects of your development process, such as logic, knowledge or structure.
In this journey you literally sow your so-called Inka seed seed into the earth, a metaphysical factor that represents your total potential and meaning in life. You then learn to make this seed germinate and blossom in order to further develop your personality and to use this power for yourself. In doing so, you will also be prepared for the next stage of your spiritual growth.
The Hatun Karpay takes you to powerful places and temples, such as Ollantaytambo, Pisaq, Saqsaywaman and Machu Picchu. Even if you don’t know the Inka tradition yet, you are welcome to join this spiritual adventure in Peru.

Day 1: Cusco
At 5pm meeting in the hotel lobby.
Introduction (englisch/ spanisch) with Juan and Ivan Núñez del Prado, in which they convey background and basic knowledge about this spiritual journey as well as the initiations that will begin the next day.
You will also get to know the other group members and find out with whom you share the room with during the trip.
Day 2: Cusco/ Cusco region
You will begin with a beautiful ceremony and then perform an ancient ritual in the sacred center of the Andean region: the Cathedral of Cusco.
This activates the Inca seed deep inside, thus initiating the process of spiritual growth.
Then visit other sacred places in the Cusco region.
Day 3: Sacred valley
Journey to the Sacred Valley of Cusco, the original land of the Inkas.
The ceremonies and rituals of today will allow you to germinate your Inka seed by connecting with the living energies of the sun, wind, earth and water.
With the help of further exercises, you water your seed and nourish it in order to start your growth process.
Day 4: Machu Picchu
Early in the morning you’ll start with the group for an exciting train ride to the Machu Picchu region. There you will spend several days.
Upon arrival in Machu Picchu a bus will tke you to the ruins for starting your day with the ceremony of flowering (that includes your beautiful seed).
Day 5: Machu Picchu
Mother Earth and the universal feminine aspect – you are in for a refreshing hiking day in the mountains.
Going down into the subtropical cloud forest, into a powerful temple where you energetically connect with and exchange with the female healing powers (the “princesses”) as well as Mother Earth and the underworld.
Day 6: Machu Picchu
Together with the group you will be walking on beautiful Inka stairs to the top of one of the most famous Andean mountains.
At first glance a seemingly impossible venture, but easier than it looks because of the ingenuity of the Inkas.
Once at the top, in a ritual, you detach from your feminine side and charge yourself with new light energy of the male spirits of the mountains, which activates your energy.
Day 7: Cusco
Take it easy and have a long sleep – today you will not be in a hurry.
After breakfast you’ll walk to the Urubamba river (the original name is Wilkanusta), to meet the amazing power of this river and to work with its consciousness.
The river connects all ritual sites in the Andean region – from Cusco to Machu Picchu and the Wiraqocha Temple.
In the afternoon travel to Cusco by train.
Day 8: Cusco
You’ll explore a famous temple that once was open to the sky. Its magnificent walls were lined with pure gold, so that it shone like a sun in the middle of the city.
This is the spiritual center of Cusco. It was once the place where the Inkas paid tribute to the various religions of all the new ethnic groups who together founded the Inka Empire.
Day 9: Cusco and Cusco region
In a magnificent temple outside of Cusco, you will make contact with the feminine powers of the water; the little girl, the young woman, the mature woman and the grandmother.
Each of them will give you their own magic and wisdom.
On this day, you will also work with indiginous masters and receive a powerful blessing.
Day 10: Cusco and Cusco region
In one of the most important and sacred temples of the ancient times, together with the group you will finally perform the coronation ritual of the Inkas. This connects you to the historical lineage, the royal family of the Inkas.
Farewell dinner in the evening.
Day 11: Cusco
Breakfast in the hotel. The Hatun Karpay now closes officially. Return flight or continuation according to your personal plans...

The event starts on the first day at 5 pm in Cusco (I will let you know the meeting point in good time) and ends on the last day after breakfast in Cusco.

Due to unpredictable weather conditions and other factors, the actual itinerary or content may differ from this description.
Unfortunately, the Hatun Karpay is not suitable for wheelchair users due to the nature of the paths.
The event starts on the first day at 5 pm in Cusco. I will let you know the meeting point in good time.
Airport pick-up service
All participants organize the transport from the airport in Cusco to the city centre by themselves. Licensed cabs are available at the airport and the drivers can always identify themselves with an official ID. The trip to the city center costs around 25$ to 35$ (depending on language and negotiation skills).
Many hotels offer to pick up their guests, which is usually cheaper than calling a cab at the airport.
Staying in Cusco
In case you arrive in Cusco a few days before the start of this trip and would like to see the city, I recommend that you allow an extra 2-3 days due to the altitude. You will probably need these days to adapt to the unfamiliar conditions. If you need accommodation in Cusco, check out https://booking.com, as almost all hotels in the city are listed there and you can quickly find a suitable hotel based on the pictures and current prices as well as in your preferred language.
The trip ends on the last day after breakfast at the hotel in Cusco. If you need a taxi, the hotel will be happy to help you with your booking.
Due to the pandemic, all airlines have significantly reduced their flight connections to Peru and are now slowly building up their capacities again. As of my experience you can expect to pay around EUR 1,200 to EUR 1,800 for a flight to Peru depending on travel time, airline and number of stop-overs.
For all flights to Cusco with a stopover in Lima, suitcases must be collected in Lima (as of Sept. 2021), as customs control takes place there. The suitcases for the onward flight to Cusco must then be checked in again at the counter of the relevant airline. When booking your flight, you should therefore allow at least 3 hours for a layover in Lima, especially if you are flying to Lima with a European/US airline and traveling on to Cusco from there on the same day with a local airline.
For domestic flights to Cusco and from Puno, I recommend LATAM, LC Peru, Avianca, Peruvian and Viva Air. I can’t really recommend Star Peru, as their fleet is outdated and often cannot take off or land in fog or bad weather. As a result, you run the risk of arriving late at your destination.
Peru has an extremely good and varied cuisine. A vegetarian diet is easily possible there whereas vegan food is still quite unknown in various places. In Cusco itself, for example, there are only two vegan restaurants and almost none outside the city, so Juan and Ivan can’t guarantee vegan food on this trip.
I recommend that participants with food intolerances (gluten, cow’s milk, sugar, certain types of fruit or vegetables, etc.) bring their necessary basics with them. Jun and Ivan will try to cater to individual needs with the service staff at each location.
It is Juan and Ivan’s aim is to book nice 4-star hotels for the entire trip.
If you would like a single room for the duration of the trip, you can book this during the registration process. The surcharge for the entire trip is EUR 990.
Depending on your own lifestyle, you should expect to spend around USD 25 to 30 per day on drinks during meals, for water during the day and for a small third meal.
Approximately two to three months before the start of the trip, I will distribute the hotel list, a packing list with recommendations and detailed information about weather/climate, clothing, cash/currency, internet/WiFi, adapters/electricity and more.
In most cases you will find general travel information, safety advice, entry requirements or medical advice for Peru on your State Department’s website. Germany’s State Department, for example, states that passports must be valid for at least 6 months before entering Peru.
In case you understand Spanish please visit the official website of Peru’s State Department.
Please check your State Department’s website for further information.
When traveling to the designated yellow fever areas, especially for the entire Peruvian Amazon region, all travelers aged 9 months or older are strongly recommended to be vaccinated in good time, i.e. 10 days before entry. Coming from the Peruvian Amazon region, the vaccination may be required for onward travel to a third country (information: as of January 2017). Please note that during the Hatun Karpay you DO NOT visit the Amazon region.
As of today, the state of emergency and all COVID-19 related restrictions were lifted on Oct 26, 2022. Short-term changes to the requirements and random PCR tests by the Peruvian authorities cannot be ruled out.
You can take part in this trip regardless of whether you have full COVID-19 vaccination protection or a current recovered status. However, it is your responsibility to ensure that you comply at all times with the legal regulations that apply in your country as well as in Peru.
The two travel organizers, Juan and Ivan Nuñez del Prado, plan this trip up to 8 months in advance without knowing how the infection situation will develop and what legal requirements will be necessary at the start of the trip. As the travel groups are quite small and take place in an almost family atmosphere, they cannot afford to confirm the trip (and thus make all necessary booking incl. their own flight tickets) if official regulations later prohibit unvaccinated participants from accessing hotels, restaurants or power places, so that these people therefore cancel their booking.
This may make the travel group so small that they actually have to cancel the trip, but cannot do so as all the other participants have already booked their flights and would not be reimbursed for these costs if they were to cancel. Together with the cancellation costs that incur in Peru, the trip involves an incalculable financial risk for them under these circumstances.
I therefore strongly recommend that you take out travel cancellation insurance when booking this trip, which also covers the financial risks of contracting COVID-19. Otherwise, there is a risk that you will lose the travel price you have already paid in the event of cancellation.
Furthermore, there is a possibility that participants may be excluded from the trip at short notice in the event of a positive CoVID-19 test (also on site). In this case, the tour price will not be refunded.
Since life is not always predictable and plannable, I strongly recommend that you take out travel cancellation insurance, as this (in many cases) will cover cancellation fees and protect you from the financial consequences should you be unable to participate in this trip.
Please note Inka World’s cancellation fees. I adhere to the legal regulations for travel agents; I therefore explicitly place the responsibility for incidents that lie outside my responsibility in your hands.
Especially with regard to illnesses such as COVID-19 or sudden family incidents, travel cancellation insurance is really recommended. Please do not transfer this personal risk to Inka World, as I may not be able to be as accommodating as I would like to be.
In my opinion, international health insurance is necessary whereas accident insurance is sensible (but not essential).
All events involve significant financial commitments in addition to booking, transaction, travel and/or marketing costs. Since the groups are small and rather informal (and I also spend quite a significant amount of time on counseling and answering questions) Inka World charges cancellation fees in the event that you cancel your participation before the start of the event.
These cancellation fees are based on the time of your cancellation and are staggered as follows:
- Up to 91 days before the start of the tour: a flat rate of 25% of the tour price
- 90 to 45 days before the start of the tour: a flat rate of 50% of the tour price
- 44 days to 15 days before the start of the tour: a flat rate of 75% of the tour price
- 14 days or less before the start of the trip: a flat rate of 90% of the trip price
If you are unable to participate in the trip, you are free to provide a replacement person. As soon as this person has paid the full travel price, you will be refunded the participation fee already paid less a processing fee of EUR 50. Please note that Inka World does not pay any bank charges for the refund of the participation fee.
