Apus Peru > Uncategorized > Who wants hot chocolate?

Now that I have your attention, I would like to share something with you about Apus Peru. Not only are we adventure travel specialists but we also work locally and sustainably with community groups in rural, high Andean communities. We achieve this through our work with and support of our partner NGO Threads of Perú http://threadsofperu.com/ in remote communities, specifically Rumira Sondormayo and Chaullacocha.

What’s that got to do with hot chocolate I hear you ask. Well, every year we organize, participate in and fund a Chocolatada in Chaullacocha. It’s a very special occasion and includes all the staff at Apus Peru and the whole community of Chaullacocha.

Come and participate in making and enjoy drinking the hot chocolate! Always wanting to share the fun and spread the love and gift of giving, Apus have made this unique event part of a fabulous trek through the awe inspiring scenery of the Lares Valley all the way through to Machu Picchu. Our trek itinerary can be found here: https://www.apus-peru.com/tours/cusco_christmas_packages.html

So, for something completely different this year, leave the shops behind and spend the run up to Christmas visiting a completely “off the beaten track” village in Andean Peru.  All this combined with a visit to Machu Picchu and Christmas Eve in Cusco for ‘noche buena’. It really would be a wonderful and unforgettable way to round off 2013!
