El Albergue Ollantaytambo

The Pachamanca, which translates to "earth oven" in the Quechua language, is a traditional Incan meal cooked upon hot rocks.  The Pachamanca Farm Lunch includes a tour of our hotel and farm as well as a visit to our Cañazo (sugar cane liquor) distillery and coffee roasting facility with tastings of these artisanal products.  You're welcome to participate in the preparation of the Pachamanca, and while the food cooks, you can visit the farm and learn about traditional and contemporary organic farming practices.  The lunch includes a variety of "grilled" meat (chicken, pork, and lamb with alpaca, rabbit and cuy upon request), Andean potatoes and camote, organic vegetables, a variety of house-made salads and sauces as well as chicha morada (purple corn beverage).  We can accommodate most dietary restrictions, and wine and beer are available upon request.  We serve the lunch at covered picnic tables right on our farm with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains, glaciers and Inca archeological sites.  

We offer the Pachamanca daily at 11am, 1pm, and 3pm.  These are the times where you would meet our farm manager in the hotel reception.  After the tour of the property and watching the cooking process, you end up sitting down for your meal about one hour after the meeting time.  The total duration of the lunch is between 2 and 3 hours, depending how much time you spend on the farm after eating lunch.  The price is US$40 per adult and US$25 for children 10 and under.
