Social Projects

At Inti Sun Trek we’ve always believed that we should “Share some of the benefits that we get from the tourism industry” with the communities we pass through while on our treks. Therefore, as part of our commitment to responsible tourism, we’re always looking for ways to make them part of our great social network.

Creating a new alternative route to Machu Picchu

Anapahua and Chillipahua are 2 beautiful communities located about 3 hours away from Cusco. Anapahua and Chilipahua have more than 500 inhabitants and their families are mostly subsistence farmers and shepherds to alpacas and sheep. Their native language is Quechua, the ancient language of the Inka. Although the Anapahua and Chillipahua are beautifull villages, they have never been involved in the tourism industry.

Unfortunately the Peruvian government is not able to help all of the communities of our country, especially in the Andes. That’s where we come in.

At Inti Trek we want to help these communities before it’s too late. We want to share some of the benefits of the tourism industry with them.

That’s why we employ people from both villages. This creates paths through the mountains for our specially designed tours, like the Cachicata Trek and the Inca Quarry trek. The money that is brought in by tourism helps to make sure the children of our workers have access to a good education, school supplies, and clothing in their ancestral home villages.

We are so proud to be able to support these beautiful people, not only giving them work and new income opportunities, but also giving them exposure to the global community we meet on our treks.

Christmas in the Andes

Anapahua and Chilipahua have more than 300 inhabitants with more than 200 children. These families are also subsistence farmers and shepherds to alpacas and sheep. Their native language is Quechua, the ancient language of the Inka, and this is the language they learn at home. For the first three years in school, they are taught mainly in Quechua, and slowly Spanish is introduced so that they can integrate into mainstream Peruvian society.

As part of the involvement of these communities with the tourism industry, we have organized a “Christmas celebration” in their homes where we share with their families.

Santa

During our celebration we brought in a Santa Claus, a clown and Mike Mouse– most of these children had never seen a Santa Claus, a clown and Mike Mouse before their life and some of them were a bit concerning a bit See the pictures

Christmass-in-the-andes

After sharing lots of laughs and taking group pictures, everyone had hot chocolate with special cake-bread and we passed out gifts! Each child received a gift ranging from clothing, soccer balls, dolls and other toys. It is important to us to share the happiness of Christmas with them and see the smiles on their faces.
