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. 



For those arriving early, we have a delicious excursion to the Chocolate Museum located in the heart of historic Cusco. Together we learn about cacao and how it becomes the yummy chocolate we love to indulge in. Try your hand at making your own and give Godiva a run for it's money!



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!

It’s taken me months to be able to write my review for this trip because how do you describe the indescribable? I live in Colorado and have experienced the German, Swiss and Italian Alps but there was something so incredibly humbling about the mountains in Peru ✨ I was awestruck by the experiences I had while there and am still processing many of them. But what really took hold during that trip was the sense of oneness with the land and animals like I have never experienced before. I had wanted a few gratuitous yoga pics after our hike through the salt mines, but, what I actually saw wasn’t me at all it was the incredible landscape that sprawled all around me. I saw the beauty of this magnificent setting and honestly didn’t even care that I was in the picture at all. I was able to focus on the picture as a whole instead of allowing my vision to narrow down to just me. It a magical, spiritual, freeing trip.

If someone ask me to go on another Trip with Erica i would say "YES, of Course!" in a Heartbeat. It took me a While to realise how amazing and fulfilling this Trip to Jordan was. This Country offers so much History, so many beautiful Places and was completely safe. The Trip itself was extremely well planned and the Package offered more than i ever expected. I highly recommend Erica and Udo to anybody. You won't be disappointed. ;)
Truly, one of the best trips I've taken! Jordan is a safe and beautiful country to explore. Petra and Wadi Rum will leave you speechless. Our accommodations and meals were always 5 star. Besides all that the trip leaders are wonderful. They create a warm loving atmosphere where your days are filled with laughter and fun. The groups are kept small which I believe helps in the ability to maintain and easy fun loving group dynamic. If its Jordan you are going to or another of Udo and Erica's trips you won't be disappointed you will enjoy your time and who knows maybe you might see me there too!
Erica made the difference on this yoga adventure in Peru. She delivered a powerful experience that was nourishment for the mind, body and soul which made my heart sing and my mind let go. I am so grateful for the opportunity to immerse myself in all the wonder I found in Peru because I didn’t need to worry about all the details. I felt so at ease trusting that that part of the trip would be taken care of for me. To my amazement it turned out to be one wow day after another. The way Erica can give everyone on and off the mat individualized attention like you’re the only person in the room with her in a room full of people, the way a baby alpaca runs into your arms or how awesome it was to have the Neil Diamond of Peru join you for a shamanic experience are just a few of my fondest memories from this experience. I will treasure my alpaca hat, cocoa tea, condor feather musical instrument, the spiritual climbs, the ceremonies and natural bonding of amazing people who were together on this journey. It’s possible the bar was set high for this trip but I will still say without hesitation, “Another Trepta Yoga Retreat could never be a bad idea.”
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.
