20-day Cultural Immersion for University Students - College Credit

Peru is incredibly beautiful, diverse and historically rich country. The Peruvian people are an upbeat, warm and friendly culture, with a sense of optimism. The country is a magical place, considered the spiritual center of the Americas. Cusco, the outlying Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu all have a special feeling to which no picture can do justice, not to mention the physical beauty of the land and the warmth of its people. On this program you will experience the heart and capital of the Inca Culture, Cusco, the Sacred Valley of Urubamba, and Machu Pichu, discovered by amateur archeologist Hiram Bingham in 1911. The reason Mountain Spirit Institute brings students to Peru is because of the rich opportunities that exist to experience a healthy culture and strong sense of community.
