Indagare Tour: Community Visit


Awamaki is a Peruvian NGO based in Ollantaytambo that operates a weaving project with impoverished Quechua women weavers. The group works with a remote indigenous community about an hour from Ollantaytambo, and they will do community visits there with tourists, which include seeing the weavers at work, a demonstration of different stages of the weaving process, a visit to a traditional Quechua home, and the opportunity to buy directly from the weavers. This is a half-day tour, though they can arrange weaving lessons for the afternoon to make a day of it. They also have a fair trade weaving store in Ollantaytambo where they frequently have weavers at work. The store is part of the non-profit and all sales there support the project. The Awamaki store hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., every day. Contact the Indagare Bookings Team to arrange for a guided visit.
