Hatun Karpay is a 10-day spiritual journey into the heart of the Inca religion and ancient Inca culture. It is the original initiation into the Inca tradition and allows a deep connection with the living energy of the universe.
Hatun Karpay means more or less "great transformation". This journey is a cycle of initiations and rites to help you train your spirituality and to discover and develop your personal power and potential.
This spiritual journey can also be described as a series of initiations and initiation experiences that have been practiced by the Incas for many centuries and passed on orally from teacher to student.
Today there are three different Hatun Karpays available:
Even if you have visited the same temple in two different Hatun Karpays, you will never do the same there - on the contrary, you may see how differently this temple and the space on which it stands can be used.
In contrast to Hatun Karpay left side, this spiritual journey places the male aspects in the foreground of one's own process,such as logic, knowledge or order.
As participant of this Hatun Karpay, you will first sow your Inca seed. In a figurative sense, this stands for your complete potential and your own meaning of life.
Then you will learn to germinate and flower this seed as well as your potential to enforce your life energy and and use this power for yourself.
You will also be prepared for the next stage of your spiritual development.
In addition, this trip will offer you authentic, first-hand impressions of the culture, the land and the people of the high Andes of Peru.
This Hatun Karpay was passed on to Juan Núñez del Prado by Don Benito Qoriwaman from Wasao who a famous master and spiritual teacher of the Inca tradition.
It leads you to powerful places and temples, for example in Pisaq, Ollantaytambo, Saqsaywaman and Machu Picchu.

At 5pm meeting in the hotel lobby.
Introduction 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.
The group begins with a beautiful ceremony and then performs a sacred ritual in the center of the Andes region, the centrally located 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.
Journey to the Sacred Valley of Cusco, the original land of the Incas.
The ceremonies and rituals of today will allow you to germinate your Inca Seed by connecting with the living energies of the sun, wind, earth and water.
With the help of further exercises, you water it again and nourish it in order to start your growth process.
You start with the group early in the morning for an exciting train ride to the Machu Picchu region. There you will spend several days.
Upon arrival in Machu Picchu you will drive by bus to the ruins and start your day with the ceremony of flowering that includes your beautiful Inca seed.
Mother Earth and the universal feminine aspect - you are in for a refreshing hiking day in the mountains.
It goes 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.
Together with the group you will be walking on beautiful Inca stairs to the top of one of the most famous Andean mountains.
At first glance a seemingly impossible venture, but possible and easier than it looks because of the ingenuity of the Incas.
Once at the top, in a ritual, you strip off your feminine side and charge yourself with new light energy of the male spirits of the mountains, which activates your energy.
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 Wilkanust`a), 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.
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 Incas paid tribute to the various religions of all the new ethnic groups who together founded the Inca Empire.
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 Inca masters and receive a powerful blessing.
In one of the most important and sacred temples of the old times, together with the group you will finally perform the coronation ritual of the Incas. This connects you to the historical lineage, the royal family of the Incas.
Farewell dinner in the evening.

The Hatun Karpay (right side) starts in Cusco on July 4 at 5pm (name and address will be announced in time).
All participants organize their journey from the airport in Cusco to the city center themselves.
There are a variety of taxis at the airport, and drivers can always identify themselves with an official ID. The trip to the city center costs foreigners between $ 15 and $ 30, depending on language ability and negotiating skills. Many hotels offer to have their guests picked up, which is usually cheaper than calling a taxi at the airport.
Due to the altitude, we strongly recommend that you plan for 2-3 additional days in advance. You will need this time to adapt to the altitude and these unfamiliar conditions. If you need accommodation in Cusco, we recommend https://booking.com as it lists almost all hotels in the city and you can quickly find a suitable hotel based on the pictures and the current price. Maybe you would like to arrive at the group hotel a few days before the start of your trip and spend some quiet days there. You can also book this via https://booking.com
The journey ends on July 14 after breakfast. In case you need a taxi, the hotel will be able to help you.
The Hatun Karpay will take place if at least 6 persons have registered until May 5. Therefore, please book flights and other services only after you have received written confirmation from us that this trip wll actually take place.
On all flights to Cusco with a stopover in Lima, suitcases must be picked up in Lima, as the customs control takes place there (as of Sept. 2017). Then the suitcases for the onward flight to Cusco need to be checked in again at the counter of the respective airline. Therefore, consider in Lima a stopover time of at least 3 hours if you fly to Lima on a European / US airline and travel on the same day from there with a local airline to Cusco.
For domestic flights we recommend the airlines LATAM, LC Peru, Avianca, Peruvian and Viva Air. We definitely do not recommend Star Peru as their fleet is outdated and often can not take off or land in fog or bad weather. As a result, you'll run the risk of arriving late at your destination.
Peru has a very good and very varied cuisine. A vegetarian diet is easily possible there, vegan food, however, is unknown in many places. In Cusco itself, for example, there are only one or two vegan restaurants, in most hotels and especially outside the city none, so we can not guarantee vegan food on this trip.
We recommend that participants with food intolerances (gluten, cow's milk, sugar, fruits or vegetables, etc.) bring along essential staples - we will try to deal with each and every one of them with the service staff, but unfortunately we can not guarantee this in advance.
Juan's and Ivan's goal is to book beautiful 3 star hotels (or better) for the entire trip. If you would like a single room for the duration of the trip, you can add it during the registration process. The surcharge is 950 EUR.
You will find general travel information, safety instructions, entry requirements, medical information in Peru and more on the website of the website of your county's Foreign Office. Germany's administration for example states, that passports must be valid for at least 6 months when entering Peru.
When traveling to the designated yellow fever endemic areas of Peru, in particular for the entire Peruvian Amazon, all travelers need to be vaccinated. Coming from Peru, vaccination may be required if you travel to a third country (information: as of January 2017).
Please note that you will NOT visit the Amazon areas during this trip.
Since life is not always predictable, we strongly recommend that you take out a travel cancellation insurance. In many cases this insurance will pay for cancellation fees and therefore save you from financial consequences in case you have to cancel the trip. In addition, a health insurance is certainly necessary, an accident insurance makes sense (but is not mandatory).
Two to three months before the start of the journey, we will send you detailed information, including a list of all hotels, a packing list including recommendations, and detailed information on weather/ climate, clothing, cash/ currency, Internet/ WIFI, adapters/ power and more.
All of Inka World's events are associated with significant financial obligations, such as booking and transaction fees, marketing and travel expenses, car, bus or hotel rentals. Since groups are not large and we use a considerable time on counseling and answering questions, Inka World will charge 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:
In case you can not attend the event, you are free to organize a substitute. As soon as this replacement person paid the participation fee in full, you will receive a reimbursement minus a processing fee of 50,- EUR. We will not reimburse bank charges for refunding the participation fee.
