The Qero Nation is considered by many historians to be the last Inca community. Anthropologist Oscar Nuñez del Prado and historians Efrain Morote and Mario Escobar made the first visit to the Qero Nation in 1955, a date that became synonymous with the discovery of the last hereditary line of the Inkas. In the imperial Inca city of Cusco, to be identified as a Qero was to be greeted with respect, reverence and an invitation to eat in another’s home because of the important Qero historical status. On this trip you will experience the Inka way of life and ancestral customs. These customs and the names of the shamans (Paqos), which are Pampamesayoq and Altomesayoq, have been preserved in the hierarchical structure attributed to Pachamama (The Earth Mother) as well as to Qero techniques of cultivation and iconography. Over the last few decades, historians and anthropologists have visited the Qero Nation, including Elian Karp, the former first lady of Peru, who took an interest in learning more about the Qero Nation and showing the world the last known Inca community. We humbly invite you to follow her lead: adding the Qero Trek Tour to your Peruvian itinerary will immerse you in the last remnants of a 500-year-old culture.
