Apus Peru > Peruvian Culture & Festivals > Apus Peru 2012 Chocolatada

Since 2008, Apus Peru and their partner organization Threads of Peru have hosted an annual chocolatada in the remote community of Chaullacocha, where many Apus Peru Inca Trail porters and their families live.  While Threads of Peru (and generous Apus Peru clients) host the event, Apus Peru staff  actually run it and it has a become a special “high” point in the annual calendar. While a long, wet, cold and challenging day, its also a fun day, when Apus staff member’s family and clients participate and join in.  Families from Chaullacocha and surrounding areas receive hot chocolate, sweet breads and a small gift while they participate in fun activities!

Apus Peru would like to give special thanks to Wangodo Travel this year, whose clients packed in and donated much-appreciated clothing.
