About this trip

Walk Through The Light 


'Jump at any opportunity to travel with Erica and Trepta Tribe if they ever go back to Peru.' - Amy R


A shaman is one that can walk both worlds with ease and certainly a familiar ancientness is awakened within the moment you step foot on the powerful earth of Peru. 


Our journey through sacred spaces returns to The Kingdom of the Sun with the intention of inspiring journeyers to feel that the veil between magically deep connection and daily life, isn't that thin. 

Tap into the powerful spirit and majestic beauty of the Andes Mountains on this transformational trip created specifically for the heart-centered curious adventure traveler in you! 


Starting our exploration in Cusco, we take in the Sacred Valley with Ancient Ruins, hike magnificent valleys, rebalance in alkalising Salt Flats, experience and participate in ancient ritual, take part in shaman-led ceremonies, explore ancient Incan temples, score artesian finds in local markets and spend two days in sacred Unesco World Heritage Site, Machu Picchu, and maybe even challenge yourself to climb to the peak!


 With 4 and 5 Star accommodations to rest our heads and to treat our senses, delicious world class food to fill out bellies, you'll be submersed in the natural beauty and wonder of these mystical lands which are truly breathtaking and life inspiring. The elevated altitude will bring us closer to our higher selves and set the pace for a week of detoxing release, however you need. 


Join international teacher and spirit junkie Erica Jung E-RYT with one to two daily intuitively lead yoga practices that focus on rinsing out the deeper layers and taking flight with our new and lighter selves. 


This trip of a lifetime satisfies all cravings for culture, adventure, great and diverse company with daily world class yoga, colliding to take your mind, body, and spirit to the highest of heights.


“AWESOME WONDERFUL DO IT! Yes they are well planned, comfortable, professional, fun and safe. Erica took the time to help a newcomer and one with lower back pain. Amaru (Gonzalo) was FANTASTIC! He allowed us to live like a local.”  Dara D



“Oh man… this trip was so absolutely amazing. To be given the chance to check off such an epic “bucket list” place is pretty damn awesome, but to experience it so deeply with Erica Jung and Udo Ramme was a gift of a lifetime. Peru and its magic had a wonderfully healing and profound affect on me.” -Kelly B

 


“Jump at any opportunity to travel with Erica and Trepta Tribe if they ever go back to Peru. The best part was the love and connection within our group and the beauty of the country. This was truly an opportunity to step away and gain some perspective. Also to reconnect with parts of me that have been scattered along the way.” – Amy R  



“Thank you, Erica, for really noticing and taking time out to meet the personal needs of each participant. Gonzalo was the best! I could not have imagined a better guide. We really lucked out getting such a knowledgable, spiritual, and genuine ambassador for Peruvian, Andean, Incan culture. The Amaru village experience, saving Machu Picchu for last – it was worth it!!” – Alexis B



'The Trepta Tribe is addictive'' Rachel D



'It was a trip of a lifetime: Peru is gorgeous, Udo organized a perfect trip and our guide was fabulous. Erica has endless energy and the group was so fun! - Paula Sequeiros

Itinerary

Day 1
Welcome To Cusco!

Welcome to Peru! 

You arrive at the airport of Cusco where you are welcomed and then taken to your hotel by private transfer (regular check-in time: 11:00am). Don't forget to grab a handful of complimentary Coca leaves right when you exit the plane to help with any altitude adjustment. It'll get you feeling like a local right away.


 
Cusco - The “Navel of the Earth” is another name for Cusco, since during the height of the Inca civilization nearly all pathways led to this capital of the empire. Today, almost every visitor to Peru eventually comes to this city located 11,150 feet above sea level (3,400 meters) and one of the best places to experience the remainders of different ages. You will not only find Incan walls and temples, but also colonial mansions and catholic churches. In combination with the flair of modern Cusco, it is one of the most fascinating cities in the country.


Unpack your bags and get settled in. We are located in the heart of Cusco so you merely have to walk out the door to start exploring this vibrant and rich city filled with food, shopping, and culture.


Make sure to fill up on delicious coca leaf tea to stave off any travel tiredness and help with altitude acclamation. 



In the evening, you will walk to Incanto Restaurant to enjoy a welcome dinner where the whole group with gather for our first official meeting.

We are so excited to welcome you to amazing Peru!

Fierce, compassionate, and beating to the beat of her own drum, Erica Jung is one yoga teacher you want to know. She’s a New Jersey native and splits her time living there and in Hamburg, Germany. Making good use of her dual citizenship, she speaks both English and Mandarin and teaches and hosts yoga retreats all over the world. - Erica first found yoga about 13 years ago while studying psychology and nursing. She stepped into her first yoga class with a desire to become more flexible, only to discover yoga was so much more than that. It was a way to blend her WHOLE-istic philosophy and Eastern and Western Sciences together into a potent combination that brought out the highest version of self. - She's now the creator of Transformational Travel and Science of Spirit which all help people expand their perspectives and connect more fully and genuinely to their true selves, for their best life yet. _ She hopes to connect with you and share this ever exciting journey called life.

A genuine adventure both spiritually and materially. We saw ancient sacred cities, had enough time to absorb the mood yet move from place to place efficiently to get an incredible amount of visuals in during the 16 day tour. Erica was knowledgeable about India, fun to be with and as nurturing as a mother. All accommodations were wonderful, well placed and a great haven when we returned from our activities. Big time kudos to Erica. I would most definitely go on another tour with her and highly recommend erica to anyone else looking for adventure that is both fun and spiritually deep.

I recently returned from a 16 day tour around India with Erica and Udo. I’m not really a tour person but have to say it never really felt like I was on a tour , more like traveling around with a bunch of fun, eclectic friends on an amazing adventure. The trip went seamlessly, which in a country like India is a feat in itself.... Udo is meticulous and chooses only the best hotels , local guides and restaurants and gently showed us around without us ever feeling herded. As for Erica , well I nicknamed her the wizard as she has this amazing ability to connect with people and bring out the best in them. They both shared their knowledge and insight of this amazing country which took us to places I never imagined I’d get to experience. India , like the ads say, IS incredible and I couldn’t have imagined a better way to experience it than with Erica and Udo. Thank you for the memories that will last a lifetime. I’m already thinking of signing up for another trip soon !
Traveling India with the love and guidance of Erica, Udo and our guides exceeded my expectations. No I mean like really, seriously out of this world exceeded my expectations. From the stunning scenery to the food (I’m a huge foodie) to the lessons I learned I can’t begin to accurately express how incredible this 16 day adventure truly was. We laughed hysterically, ate fully and our souls were filled to the brim throughout our journey. This was one of the best gifts I could have ever given myself. Thank you Erica and Udo for organizing such a life transforming trip. You guys rock!
PS
This was my second trip with Erica ( I went to Peru with her) so I was pretty sure it was going to be amazing but it surpassed all my expactations! It was like a wild 16 days ride on a magic carpet through some of the Holy places in India many of which out of the tourist route. Very well organized, incredible group, always felt safe, magical moments, Ioga sessions with chanting and stories about the Indian gods and so much more. An amazing experience I will never forget. So if you have an open heart and want to go out of the ordinary Tourist tours don´t exitate, Erica is your ticket! Thank you so much Erica and Udo
When someone asks me about how Thailand was the only word I have been able to find to describe this trip is incredible. Every single day was so special thanks to all the love and energy Erica and Udo put into planning such a spectacular journey. I couldn't be more happy with the entire trip. I thank you both with my whole heart. Where is my passport going next?
