Qoyllority is one of the most intriguing parties in the Andes. Although it is linked to the Catholic religion, its roots are found in the ancient Inca principle of uniting man with nature. In Quechua Qoyllority means "Snow Star" or "Luminous Snow", much of the party is based on growth, fertility, and the worship of ancient mountain spirits. Every June, just before the feast of Corpus Christi, more than 2,000 people congregate in the small town of Qoyllority (at 4,700 m.a.s.l.), near the snow line of Ausangate Mountain.
