Experience Quechua Culture in Peru

No reviews, be the first!

The colorful culture of the Quechua-speaking peoples seems mysterious to many travelers, an exotic element of Peru’s Andean population, always visible in bright woolen textiles, yet separate, inscrutable. Some enterprising folks will furnish photo ops at top tourist destinations, whole families in traditional dress—including a stylish bowler hat for the ladies—and perhaps an adorable llama for flavor. That will be $1, senora, and would you like to buy a souvenir.

There is much more, however, to Quechua culture, and adventurous souls are more than welcome to explore its strength and beauty on your visit to Peru, or anywhere in the Andes.
