Quoylluriti - Perú

Every year, thousands of peruvians walk up to the slopes of the Colquepulco Mountain to suffer, to see if their god can forgive them their sins. They dance from the moment they get there until the day they leave, maybe a week or two later. No sleep, no rest, just dance for their Lord. A mix between religious and indigenous believes that started thousands of years ago when the Spanish conquer the legendary civilisation of the Inkas. 

They say they are praying to God but they are praising the Apu (or mountain)

They say they are asking Jesus to forgive them, but the legend says that first he was a rock that got transformed into a human being.
