The Qeros Nation Trek Briefing

The Qero Nation trek  is considered by many historians to be the last Inca community. Anthropologist Oscar Nuñez del Prado made the first visit to the Qero Nation in 1955, a date that became synonymous with the discovery of the last hereditary line of the Inkas. In the imperial Inca city of Cusco, to be identified as a Qero was to be greeted with respect, reverence and an invitation to eat in another’s home because of the important Qero historical status. On this trip you will experience the Inka way of life and ancestral customs.

These customs and the names of the shamans (Paqos), which are Pampamesayoq and Altomesayoq, have been preserved in the hierarchical structure attributed to Pachamama (The Earth Mother) as well as to Qero techniques of cultivation and iconography. Over the last few decades, historians and anthropologists have visited the Qero Nation, showing the world the last known Inca community.

We humbly invite you to follow her lead: adding the Qero Trek Tour to your Peruvian itinerary will immerse you in the last remnants of a 500-year-old culture.

Faqs

Why is it special to visit the Qero Nation?

The Qero Nation is a very old town which preserves a lot of culture and especially ancestral knowledge of connection with Mother Earth (Pachamama), the town of Hatun Qero is the main town of this entire Nation and to reach this town is to cross a time tunnel and going back 500 years, its stone houses and thatched roofs plus nature combine perfectly.

Is it true that the inhabitants of the Qero Nation live above 4300 meters?

Yes, the people of this Nation live above 4000 meters, but they also have land in the valleys with less height and thus complement to get different products for seasons.

Will I have altitude sickness in the Camianta?

For these walks we normally recommend having an acclimatization of 1 to 2 days in Cusco, as well as the consumption of coca tea infusions, on the walk our guides carry a first aid kit in which an oxygen bottle is included in case at some point it is necessary to use it.
