The Qeros nation is the latest generation of propertied men from the deepest Andean tradition, as known as the last Inca community by historians and anthropologists. The Qeros Inca Nation is located in the province of Paucartambo. Here people have maintained their language for hundreds of years (Quechua or Runasimi) as well as the religion of their ancestors.
The Qeros nation has survived through time and history, practicing their customs and carrying out their traditional agricultural and pastoral activities like they have done for hundreds of years. They maintain their own moral norms, their own laws and style of indigenous dress. During this trip you will be able to explore each village and the most important you will be able to photograph their lifestyle.
