Trip Overview

Participate in an Ayahuasca retreat in Cusco; Ayahuasca is the Quechua name to refer both to the liquid resulting from the slow decoction of an Amazonian vine called Banisteriopsis caapi, and to the vine itself, which contains the compounds Harmine, Harmaline and Tetrahydroharmine.

Based on the liana decoction called ayahuasca, each Amazonian group or each healer adds different plants with the aim of communicating with a specific spirit depending on the disease they are going to treat, or the specific ritual they are going to perform. Ethnographic studies have reported that there are more than 5,000 different recipes to prepare Ayahuasca and more than 200 plants that can be added to the decoction.

In pre-Columbian times, it was believed that the healer or commonly called shaman had a great capacity to make contact with his extrasensory consciousness through psychophysical techniques and/or the intake of psychotropic substances. In this way they managed to enter a state of consciousness that provided them with divinatory and therapeutic wisdom.

Trip Highlights

  • Ayahuasca is like 10 years of therapy in a few hours, some say. The active ingredient breaks down your defenses to let the suppressed, repressed emotions and memories come up. It’s been proven to improve neuroplasticity of the brain, forming new pathways. The experiential nature of the “trips” makes realizations stick. People tend to make significant life choices in the days, weeks and months afterwards. Many report they were positive.
  • Ayahuasca is said to be the closest thing to a near-death experience. Having to fight to survive “death” is a common experience in psychedelics and one that confronts you with fears and discomfort and forces you to push through. The reward is the calm of wisdom and gratitude .
  • Current research shows that ayahuasca can protect and restore certain parts of the brain, increase mindfulness, improve emotion regulation, and reduce stress and depression almost immediately, as it paves the way for retrieving and reprogramming memories repressed.

Activities

Ayahuasca is a shamanic medicine originating from the Amazon Rainforest, brewed from a combination of several plants that are legally available in Peru. It is associated with rituals and religious ceremonies that are specific to a complete Ayahuasca experience. The immediate effects of the medicine can be felt in about 20-60 minutes after the oral intake, but the intoxication can, on occasion, last on a person for up to 8 hours. Ayahuasca has a broad spectrum of some amazing positive effects on the body, mind & soul, making one feel completely different in every single ceremony.

Accommodations

Hampiq Wasi : 01 Night

Our Hampiq Wasi  is located in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, just one hour from Cusco. The calming environment at Hampiq Wasi makes this an excellent choice for anyone who’ll be having their first interaction with ayahuasca. There our Andean and jungle Shamans will guide you in the wonderful spiritual world of the Andean religion, and the use of its sacred plants, such as Ayahuasca, San Pedro, Kambo, Rape, Sananga. Likewise, personalized psychological help and therapies. All with a lot of discretion.

Itinerary

Level Leisurely/Moderate
Max Elevation 2700 m

Our staff will come to pick you up from your hotel in Cusco at 4:00 pm, then we will transfer by private transportation to the sacred valley of the Incas, our ceremony will take place in the Town of Pisac, there we will meet Master Alberto, who will give us a warm welcome. The ayahuasca ceremony begins at 6:00 p.m. with the prior permission ceremonies performed by the ayahuasca shaman with different rituals that include tobacco rituals and Iqaros. The dose that is provided to people depends on the energy level and mental strength; the shaman does not provide the same dose for all people.

During the ceremony, you will take a place on one of the mattresses lined up around the room. A bucket and toilet paper next to each one. Then you will sit and watch the shaman prepare the Ayahuasca and perform the ritual of blessing the medicine. The shaman will also drink the medicine. During the purge you will cry, urinate, vomit, defecate, wince, or yawn. We will be aware of all these reactions that are coming and we will be able to act to guide you at all times.

Over the course of the night, you will experience many things. Or possibly just one important thing or very little. The ceremony ends shortly after 11:00 pm, when the lights are turned on. And then you will lie down on your bed, which is assigned to you before the ceremony.

The next day you will be offered a light breakfast, likewise you can consult the Shaman about your visions, who will provide you with spiritual guidance on the possible meanings, and how to have a good harmony of your energies. Our staff will pick you up at 8:00 am, arriving in the city of Cusco at approximately 9:30 am.

FAQ

WHAT IS AYAHUASCA?

Ayahuasca is becoming well known, and Ayahuasca tourism to South America for ayahuasca ceremonies has doubled in the past couple of years. Everyone wants to attain a higher consciousness and peek into the vast unknown universe within.

Ayahuasca is called by some the Spirit Molecule, and by others the God Molecule. It helps people discover the divine within us all. DMT has been the spiritual medicine of indigenous tribes in South America, particularly in Peru and Ecuador. It is a medicine of the jungle. It is a combination of several ingredients, all plants that grow in the jungle, and DMT ayahuasca is a brew of this combination of plants. Spirit vine contains DMT, the God Molecule, or the Spirit Molecule because it puts a person in an altered state of consciousness, a hallucinogenic entheogen.

Many people tout the healing effects of DMT ayahuasca, from the physical level, the emotional level, the mental level, and most importantly the spiritual level, where all illness starts from. If the illness is addressed from within, deep within, the physical manifestation of illness often disappears. If old resentment and anger is let go, health in mind, body and spirit takes its place.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE AYAHUASCA CEREMONY

Everyone is different, and the plant medicine reacts differently in each person’s chemistry, mental constructs, and emotional environment. What can you expect? It is a very individualized experience for each person.

There are as many paths to God as there are individuals on the planet; likewise, there are just as many possibilities for an Ayahuasca experience as there are individuals on the planet. Your experience with Ayahuasca will be unique and will be your own. Just as with meditation, some people are very visual types of people (clairvoyant) and will see colors, patterns, and visions.

Some people are sensing types and will feel emotional and mental changes, or will sense magnetic forces; they seem to “know” (clairsentient). Some people “hear” voices, explanations or sounds (clairaudient). For yet others, it is a combination of all of these. All report feeling physical changes, and this is to be expected when you ask, “what can I expect?” Ayahuasca spirit and all plant medicines are healing vessels and each individual perceives what they do with different senses.

GENERAL EFFECTS OF AYAHUASCA

Ayahuasca is used extensively for healing and religious ceremonies. In recent decades, there is a growing interest in the said substance due to its potential in treating mental disorders like depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and addiction.

Some felt that they were lost, but came to their senses again after using Ayahuasca. Others felt that they were too consumed with their personal issues, but Ayahuasca awakened them to feel alive again. In most ayahuasca ceremonies, nausea and vomiting are a common side effect. Some even experience diarrhea. Aside from these, there are obvious physical side effects. Some ayahuasca users experience profuse sweating and shivering. Their heart rate and blood pressure rise. These ayahuasca effects, which are likely due to DMT intoxication, subject one to risks of hypertension, agitations, dizziness and muscular incoordination.

Ayahuasca may also affect one’s emotional state. As some put it, ayahuasca makes one reflect on his experiences and loosen up from his normal way of thinking. It gives one the strength to think about his traumatic past and confront those things that he usually pushes out of his conscious mind. It can stir up your traumatic past and result in distress. It may also heighten one’s fears and result in anxiety and paranoia.

AYAHUASCA DURATION
  • Total duration: 4 – 8 Hours
  • Onset: 20 – 60 minutes
  • Coming up: 30 – 45 minutes
  • Plateau: 1 – 2 hours
  • Coming down: 1 – 2 hours
  • After effects: 1 – 8 hours
DIET PREPARATION FOR THE AYAHUASCA CEREMONY

In preparation for your ayahuasca ceremony, it is suggested that you adhere to ayahuasca diet guidelines. It is not required to be on the ayahuasca diet to have a good experience but it helps to prepare your body to receive ayahuasca. It depends on how clean you already eat and how healthy you are. If you are already a healthy eater, you will probably be fine and have a good experience. The ayahuasca diet is simply a suggestion to prepare for ayahuasca ceremony.

There is a specific way an ayahuasca shaman suggests preparing for ayahuasca ceremony. Shamans suggests that, if possible, using the ayahuasca diet for 2-4 weeks prior to your ayahuasca ceremony. If you don’t have 2-4 weeks to prepare, try to be disciplined for 2-3 days before the ayahuasca ceremony.

These plant medicines seem to “know” when you’ve been bad or good in your diet, and your experience will reflect what is in your body. Make sure your body is a clean vessel in which this medicine can function the way it is intended to. For the most part, the ayahuasca diet is like an alkaline diet, which excludes acidic foods.

MEDICAL GUIDELINES FOR AYAHUASCA CEREMONIES

We require that you NEVER enter an ayahuasca ceremony combined with any recreational substance, pharmaceutical drugs, nor health herbal formulations that can affect the physical body in any way, including seemingly non-impacting vitamins or herbs.

All that is being required is three days before the start of shamanic ceremonies you go all natural and have your body in its unadulterated state so you can truly connect with these plant medicine spiritual experiences. Ayahuasca must be used alone, by itself, and never combined with other medicines, stimulants or depressants. There shouldn’t be any chemical altering of your body or brain even if seemingly for something minor.

No documentation or scientific study has been done to examine any substance in combination with Ayahuasca, so no one really knows what would be safe. Therefore, it is safe to say that abstaining from everything for the three days before the ceremony would be the best avenue. That includes your normal medications as well. (Always consult with your doctor about this.)

SAFETY DURING THE AYAHUASCA CEREMONY

One reason why there have been complications for some people with ayahuasca ceremonies, is that some shamans mix other substances into their medicine, like datura (which can give nightmarish experiences and cause death) or high quantities of nicotine (to open the body more to medicine), or other substances that change the nature of the medicine somewhat.

By contract with our shamans, we do not allow our shamans to mix anything into the medicine that is not part of the traditional ingredients. Our shamans practice the utmost of safety when it comes to making sure our medicines are pure and unadulterated. When deaths are connected to Ayahuasca, it is normally the person who ingests the ayahuasca has mixed with other substances.

No deaths from Ayahuasca DMT, Ayahuasca, or the Spirit Molecule / God Molecule are known, unless pharmaceutical or recreational drugs are mixed, or serious health issues are aggravated, like respiratory illnesses or heart diseases. Blood pressure can rise too. However, death has not been associated with DMT ayahuasca no matter what the dose.

WHAT IT'S LIKE TO DO AYAHUASCA AND WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A CEREMONY

If you are considering partaking in such a journey, prepare to encounter the divine, the infinite, the mystery—whatever you choose to call it—that which is beyond the limited perspective of your mind. You must also be willing to accept that the divine/infinite/mystery cannot be experienced in a way that will make sense to your brain. The infinite is infinite, while your brain is still finite.

The icaros, sung by a Shaman, are an integral part of the ceremony. It is through these songs that your mareación (the visionary effects of Ayahuasca) is enhanced. It is also quite likely that you will gain a greater appreciation of the power of music through the icaros.

Be wary that you might not necessarily like the information that the divine/infinite/mystery chooses to share with you. In the documentary Vine of the Soul: Encounters With Ayahuasca, one user reported that the horror she experienced was truly indescribable and that she thought she was going to die. But another participant in the ceremony said that Ayahuasca opened her heart in a way it had never been opened before.

Ayahuasca is always referred to in the feminine because users have said that the voice of higher intelligence that they’ll hear during the ceremony is female. She (meaning the plant) speaks to you directly and tells you what you need to work on in your life.

The experience will be ineffable, beyond language, and you will likely find that trying to put it into words after the ceremony has ended will be daunting if not impossible. “Ten years of therapy downloaded in a night,” seems to be a fairly universal analogy to convey the possible take-away from a ceremony. Another possible outcome of an Ayahuasca ceremony is that you will realize that everything perceived through your five senses and assimilated by your mind is contrived or false.

Returning ceremonial participants should also be aware that each time you experience the divine/infinite/mystery, it will be different. Each experience is akin to just a small drop in the ocean.

If you do not adhere to the recommended dieta (diet) before the ceremony, then the plants will assist your body in ridding itself of the chemicals—salt, sugar, alcohol, caffeine, etc., by fleshing out the toxins and impurities that you have crammed into it over the years. This is commonly known as purging, which translates to literally just that. You’ll probably vomit profusely, but purge buckets will be provided. But fear not, if your body (including the subtle energy body) is clean, then there will be nothing to purge.

It is possible that plant medicine allows the subjective self to temporarily shed and merge with the infinite “other.” After a ceremonial night of purging, you might find that you gain a fresh new outlook on what was once a seemingly mundane reality.

WILL AYAHUASCA CAUSE ME HALLUCINATIONS?

Ayahuasca does not cause hallucinations, but rather takes you on a journey into the unconscious.
Due to its chemical composition, ayahuasca is considered an entheogenic and non-hallucinogenic substance, which means that the altered state of consciousness it produces connects us with our most spiritual part. Etymologically, “entheogen” means “being inspired by the gods”. That is why it is usually taken to connect with sleeping or blocked parts of our unconscious or to connect with the sacred in the world.

AYAHUASCA WILL GENERATE ME ASTRAL JOURNEYS

It is not the ayahuasca that produces the “journey”.
The psychoactive substance that modifies our state of consciousness is DMT and it is not found in the ayahuasca rope, but in the leaves of a low jungle bush called chakruna. Our body (which by itself secretes DMT in very small quantities, for example when we are newly born) has the ability to neutralize the effect of the psychoactive substance. That is to say: the chakruna by itself cannot cause us anything. Ayahuasca is the one that has the ability to block the enzymes of our liver so that DMT is successfully metabolized.
The curious thing is that ayahuasca is the only plant in the jungle (among millions of species) capable of blocking these enzymes in our body. How did the shamans know?

WHAT ROLE DO THE SHAMANS DURING THE AYAHUASCA CEREMONY

The shaman is the mediator between the visible world of things and the invisible world of energies and spirits. No matter what you ask a shaman, he will always end up answering whatever he wants. We, the outsiders, come with such a desire to know everything, to know what is in that other invisible world that is there but that we can barely touch, that we do not stop launching questions like arrows. However, shamans know that each one must find their own answers and they practice their role as guide very well.
The mission of the shaman is to direct the ceremony, that is, to call the spirits (especially the spirit of Mother Ayahuasca) so that they heal us with their wisdom and show us what we have to see.

¡Una experiencia que cambia la vida! El entorno era absolutamente hermoso, la casita de Alberto está ubicado en el pueblo de Pisac, donde se siente un bonito ambiente rodeado de las montañas y árboles. Su autenticidad, apoyo, amabilidad, consideración y dedicación superaron todo lo que jamás haya experimentado. Ahora... la experiencia con la ayahuasca fue extremadamente difícil, pero valió la pena. ¡Recomiendo Andean Great Treks 100%!

J'ai visité le Pérou pour faire la route du Chemin Inca jusqu'au Machu Picchu, cela faisait partie de ma préparation spirituelle à mon rituel de médecine ancestrale de l'Ayahuasca. Le lieu de retraite est dans la ville de Pisac, où l'on ressent beaucoup de lien avec les montagnes et mon expérience a été gratifiante, j'ai pu sentir à quel point la médecine m'a procuré de belles sensations de passages de ma vie antérieure. Comme première expérience c'est super. Le chaman Alberto, un très bon ami, qui m'a expliqué toutes les visions que j'ai eues.

Thank you very much for such an incredible experience friends, your organization and wisdom with the sacred plant of Ayahuasca is brilliant. I relaxed and felt very beautiful about my astral journey and the connection with Mother Nature. If you go to Cusco and want to do this sacred ceremony, I recommend you go with Elmer and Alberto, they will know how to guide you with great patience in all your questions. Oh, also keep in mind that you should prepare your mind and body in advance.

What to expect from our

Amazon Tours

Feel the restorative power of nature, relax your mind in a place full of energy and life, disconnect from the fast-paced frenzy of everyday life.

DO I NEED ANY VACCINATIONS BEFORE VISITING AMAZON RAINFOREST?

 Andean Great Treks

Vaccines recommended for travelers to the Amazon often include hepatitis A and B, typhoid, and yellow fever. Visit your doctor four to six weeks before your trip for the latest recommendations and requirements for your destination. You may be advised to start taking malaria pills around this time.

The US Center for Disease Control is an excellent resource for detailed information on preventing travel related illnesses.

IS THE AMAZON RAINFOREST SAFE?

 Andean Great Treks

To stay safe in the Amazon, travelers should eat sensibly, dress appropriately and apply repellent to minimize the chance of getting bitten by mosquitos, and take the necessary vaccinations, medication and precautions as recommended by your doctor.

When hiking, canoeing, and enjoying other jungle activities you should always stay with your group and follow your guide’s advice. We also recommend that you leave valuable jewelry, watches and electronics at home, and where possible use a money belt and any room safes at your disposal to store passports and important documents.

WHAT SHOULD I PACK?

 Andean Great Treks

Bring comfortable walking shoes, light-weight long pants, and long-sleeved tops, a wide-brimmed hat, sunscreen, extra socks, mosquito repellent with DEET, bathing suits and of course, waterproof ponchos with hoods to protect against rain your camera, with charger and extra batteries on excursions. Binoculars are very important to enjoy the wildlife. Do not forget to include some items that you can give away to the locals (t-shirts, pens, and paper are especially prized, and perhaps some chocolates or candies for little kids). During meals in the dining room, we ask our guests to wear casual clothing and shoes. We provide rubber boots for wetland excursions and wet landings, and recommend taking comfortable walking shoes.

SHOULD I BUY TRAVEL INSURANCE?

 Andean Great Treks

Travelers are strongly advised to purchase trip cancellation insurance which will reimburse the cost of air tickets and other non-refundable trip payments. International medical, baggage loss, and delay insurance are also recommended. Unfortunately, if you miss the Amazon tour because of a weather-related flight cancellation, we will not reimburse the cost of the reservation since flight cancellations are beyond our control and we have to comply with our schedules.

AMAZON RAINFOREST TOURS FAQs

DO I NEED A VISA TO TRAVEL TO THE AMAZON?

To enter the countries in the Amazon Rainforest, you will need a valid passport. However, visitors from most countries do not need a visa, provided their visit will be shorter than 90 days. If you plan to stay longer, you will need to request a visa in your home country.

IS THE CUISINE AS GOOD AS I’VE BEEN TOLD? CAN I GET A SPECIAL DIET?

Yes. The food is simply world class. Our guests enjoy a menu of fresh, delicious Peruvian fare (with a bit of continental influence). Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner each day promises to be a culinary feast for the senses, paired with select South American wines or perhaps a freshly pressed juice. If you have special dietary requests, please inform Andean Great Treks at the time of booking, or at least by 30 days prior to start the Amazon Tours, because some items may have to be ordered from local markets in advance. Every effort will be made to cater to special dietary needs and to accommodate special requests, subject to a given products’ availability in Peru.

IS IT EASY TO SPOT WILDLIFE IN THE AMAZON RAINFOREST TOURS?

Amazon wildlife is abundant, but you have to know where to look. Many creatures are weary of humans and often camouflaged. Our expert naturalist guides will help you spot and identify animals with their local knowledge, tracking experience, and remarkable eagle-eyesight and trained ears.

Many can even mimic bird and monkey calls to attract them! In general, the longer you spend in the region and deeper you can travel into the rainforest, the more chance of spotting wildlife you see. A decent set of binoculars will also go a long way to help.

ARE THERE MORE NATURAL WAYS TO COMBAT MOSQUITOES AND INSECTS?

Taking vitamin B12 is a more natural way to gain some resistance to mosquitoes. It can be ingested as vitamin pills or found in some foods with high levels of B12 such as shellfish (clams, oysters, mussels), fish, crustaceans (crabs), soy products (milk, tofu), bran cereals, red meat (lamb, beef), low fat milk, select cheeses, and eggs. We suggest taking B12 supplements around 2-3 weeks before arriving in Amazon Rainforest.

DO YOU WELCOME FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN?

Yes. We warmly welcome families with children aged 7 or older. Our lodges are comfortable to receive families with their children. Additional accommodation for one child is available in some Lodges. Our naturalist guides are very friendly with kids and all of our staff will provide the necessary care for your family. We also have survivor jungle trails, piranha catch-and-release fishing experiences in Iquitos, and meal menus for kids.

Your specialist understands that, when the journey is right, it has the power to excite your emotions in the most profound ways after all, that was the effect on them.

WE EXPLORE WITHOUT AFFECTING THE ECOSYSTEM

WE EXPLORE WITHOUT AFFECTING THE ECOSYSTEM

We want travel to change us, and not the World

‘There’s a saying: we don’t inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children. When we show you our country, this philosophy guides everything we do. It’s our responsibility to preserve the environment and wildlife, and support communities. That means using slower modes of transport, like cycling, employing local people, and working with communities who’ll benefit directly from your visit. This also gives you the best, most authentic impression of the places we want to share with you.

We prefer to buy local products in ecological bags, to avoid the use of plastic bags, likewise we teach the use of soaps and ecological products in each tour that we organize. We also work on reforestation projects with local communities who take care of landscape resources such as communal reserves, national parks.
