The name Mallku has it's origin in the language of the Incas, in Quechua. Mallku stands for the spirit and the power of the mountains. The spirit of the mountains found it's physical presence in a bird, the Condor. This bird is one of the largest birds that can fly. It crosses our skies in the Andes and shows us it's majesty permanently. The Condor was therefore a sacred animal for the Incas. We try to keep that spirit of the mountains alive.
