Inti Wasi

Inti Wasi, which means "House of the Sun" in Kichwa, is a beautiful family-owned cultural and traditional healing center in Saraguro. The Saraguro people live in the high Andes mountains of the town named after the residents and have extensive knowledge of medicinal herbal plants of the mountains and various spiritual healing techniques. The Saraguros are known for being great healers in the Andes and are also well-recognized for their distinctive style- they dress in black, women in home-woven pleated skirts, men in knee-length trousers, both wearing matching woolen ponchos, and black or cow-patterned felt hats. It is a lovely opportunity to be able to collaborate with the folks here and a beautiful opportunity for visitors to learn about this fascinating culture.
