Stroll past the colourful stalls, sip a cup of coca tea to acclimate to the altitude and keep your ears open for roving bands playing the traditional music of the Andes. Later this afternoon, we arrive at a former 18th century colonial-style monastery in the heart of the Sacred Valley, our hotel for the night. ‘Dive into Culture’ and meet Nilda Callañaupa Alvarez, who will share centuries-old Andean weaving techniques.
