  • 4 pairs of underwear, 6 pairs of socks (Bamboo or cotton/nylon-blend socks dry faster than 100 percent cotton, which lose their softness when air-dried.)

Travel Guide Inca Trail 4 Days

Information about Ayahuasca Sullpayky Experience Sessions (optional with Inca Trail 4 days):

It is true that a spiritual journey can mark and change your life forever.

In Peru, you have a great opportunity to appreciate and enjoy a variety of tourist destinations as well as share with other cultures. But this is not all that the Andean country has to offer.

If you are an explorer who is not limited to hiking but to living a spiritual and mental experience, Peru is your greatest opportunity. Peru in recent years has become incredibly popular for traveling to spiritual retreats in the middle of the Amazon, retreats with Ayahuasca ceremonies are one of the many options that many travelers seek to enjoy. Therefore, together with the experts at Sullpayky Experiences, we will guide you through this Ayahuasca experience in Peru.
Previously, Ayahuasca in Peru was limited to its traditional use by the native settlers. This mystical herbal preoaration has been used as traditional herbal preparation by different indigenous tribes for thousands of years.

This preparation is psychoactive that has become very popular among tourists attending spiritual retreat centers. Many of these centers are located in the jungle of Peru and are run by renowned shamans. This preparation is said to be very beneficial for self-discovery, to combat addiction problems and even problems related to cancer.


First of all, it is good to eliminate some misconceptions you have about Ayahuasca. Despite the news, Ayahuasca is not a drug, Ayahuasca is more than a simple plant, it is a spirit, a sacred and ancestral ritual for healing.

It is an infusion elaborated by shamans of the Amazon jungle to facilitate the entrance to states of consciousness and to obtain new perspectives of life. Historically, it is known that many shamans use it to cure even physical, mental, or emotional ailments as well as ailments in general.

Ayahuasca is a jungle vine that grows in the middle of the Amazon rainforest commonly found in Colombia, Peru, Bolivia, Brazil, and the Guianas, the sacred plant is highly revered by indigenous tribes as well as shamans in the Andean regions.

It is considered a «Master Plant» or «Sacred Plant». The term Ayahuasca derives from the ancient Quechua «Aya» which means dead, while «Huasca» translates as vine or rope. Meaning «The Rope of the Dead» or the «Vine of the Dead».

This concoction has been used for over 5000 years, If you are looking to visit Machu Picchu, you may enjoy one of these ceremonies.


Despite popular belief, preparing ayahuasca in Peru is quite difficult. Most of those who try it get undesired results or even have bad experiences accompanied by indigestion. Therefore, if you are looking to live this experience, you have to perform with one of our most recognized shamans in Cusco, and also visit the lost city of the Incas, «Machu Picchu».

EFFECTS OF AYAHUASCA The effects of this medicinal infusion can vary greatly depending on the patient and their environment as well as the dosage, but one thing you can be sure of is the effects produced before and after in most users.

Whether you gain a deep spiritual connection, improve your relationships, or a connection with nature, the universe, and your own psyche. Many believe it helps to reach states of enlightenment, where you can come to understand another state of sentimental or material understanding in your life.

Sessions are often accompanied by intense hallucinations and an altered perception of reality, time and space seem to alter and you will. The effects of the infusion can last between 4 to 8 hours but will depend on the dosage and preparation of the preparation.

We hope that the information about ayahuasca has helped you to understand a little more about this millenary tradition of the Incas.
