The Balcon de Inca

The Balcon de Inca

Chinchero, a small Andean town situated 30km from Cusco was known to the Incas as the birthplace of the rainbow. The seven colors can be seen throughout the town through the brightly colored traditional clothes that the inhabitants still wear. 

In addition, the town is famous throughout Peru for its textiles and weaving and if you wanted to buy traditional Andean products then this is the place to go.

You pass the town on the way to the Sacred Valley making it easily accessible. Peru Fitness Holidays usually visits one small cooperative called the Balcon de Inca, which sits high above the town giving an impressive view of the Incan and Spanish ruins below.

The women who are part of the cooperative are extremely welcoming and offer a display of how they can get all the colors from plants and the odd parasite. They take you through all the steps from taking the wool from the Alpaca to the finished product.

Afterwards you are able to view the completed products, with each stall belonging to one family who are part of the cooperative.

If you wanted to see how you would look if you were from Chincheros, then you get the chance!
