Synopsis

Traditional medicine continues to thrive at an altitude of 4,000 meters in the Huaraz region of Peru.

Thousand-year-old practices, based on the close relationship between man and nature, are perpetuated by women who gather plants in the mountains and shamans who perform treatments.

In sumptuous landscapes, from Huascaran, its highest peak, to the dizzying slopes of Machu Picchu, Andean cosmovision is explained through a gallery of fascinating and colorful characters.
