Return To The Sacred Ice

A journey to the festival of Q’OLLORITTI in the southern Andes of Peru, the world’s highest pilgrimage.¬†NICHOLAS SHAKESPEARE follows a group of pilgrims from the village of Chincheros as they make their way to a shrine, which sits 16,000 feet above sea level, to participate in this extraordinary festival of ice.¬†Supposedly the celebration of a 17th Century apparition of Christ to a llama-herder, it is in reality an ancient pagan rite from which human sacrifice has not entirely disappeared.
