Star Snow – Peru Pilgrimage

OVERVIEW

Qoyllur Rit’i, the “Bright Snow” or “Snow Star,” is one of the most important festivals of the Andean world. It combines Sun worship and Christian icons with the deities which inhabit the sacred Apu Ausangate, the 6,382m (20,940ft) protector mountain of Cusco. The festivities rise to a lofty height of 5,200m (17,060ft), where the famous sanctuary is situated at the base of Mount Sinakara. This is a stunning location, surrounded by mountains and breathtaking views of snow-capped glaciers.
