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.

Anapahua and Chillipagua villagers are working together  with one will to work in the tourim industry in the slope mountain

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.
