What does Machulas mean?

Machulas is a Quechua word that mean old. For example, Machu Picchu means old mountain. In this case, Machulas refers to Ancient Elders. We chose this name because Cusco is a Quechua region, and Quechua is our mother language. We feel it is our responsibility to take care of our culture, and, as a company, we want to demonstrate that Machulas Journey is involved in ancient culture, the Andean community, and sustainable tourism activities around the Cusco region. Preserving and sharing our customs is our goal.
