What Does Pachari Mean?

Pachari is a compound word from the Quechua language. Quechua was the primary language spoken by the Incas throughout their territory in Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Colombia, Chile and Argentina in the 13th and 14th centuries. The language has survived to modern times and is still spoken by indigenous peoples primarily concentrated in Peru.

Pachari is composed of two Quechua words, “pacha” meaning earth and “ri”, meaning to go or to walk. Together, they mean “one who walks the earth”. We like to consider it to be the Quechua word for wanderer or adventurer and thought it was a fitting name for the story of our travels.
