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.

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

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.

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.
