Returning for my third visit to Willka T'ika in the Scared Valley of Peru is statement enough that I find the place fantastic. It is a tranquil oasis, a vegetarian's delight, a traveler's respite, a seeker's solace. Carol Cumes has created a unique place to revitalize one's spirit. The staff could not be more accommodating. The day trips to the surrounding areas and to Machu Picchu in particular are all part of the enjoyment. A visit to one of the schools Carol sponsors is an experience to savour. Perhaps you'll want to return over and over, as I do.
