What is known, is more Appreciated!!
We know children from the rural areas is hard to afford for them a trip to Machu Picchu, since this is too expensive for them, we understand that Machu Picchu is the most dreamed place to everyone, so we really want to make real the Andean children dreams.
In 2016 we brought 2 groups of hildren from 2 different Communities to the ancient citadel of Machu Picchu and they had the guided tour in their native language “Quechua”, Inka Trail Explorer really wants to encourage to value our culture, we are promoting this trip with your help. We bring them from their places, by transport, train, bus to Machu Picchu, meal, Machu Picchu guided tour, and we take back them at home after the tour. Thank for your help Dear Travelers.
Rural School supplies

Our pride and joy has been “adopting” the highland villages, where our indigenous families have lived for centuries as subsistence farmers. Several times a year we go to these villages taking helps to their schools with pictograms books, computers and basic hygiene supplies.
Reforesting our Indigenous Communities
Inka Trail Explorer as a sustainable and responsible tour operator is focus in green conservation of native trees from the Andes. Planting a tree is for giving a life, and planting a thousand of trees, even much better for preserving our planet, in a green color for future generations. Trees gives us a healthy oxygen and natural environment. The Tree of Queuña is a native Andean tree, it grows from 3000meters up to 4500 meters high, very good tree to preserve soils, to avoid the erosion, windbreaks and to preserve the houses and Sheltered Andean families windless frigid. Andean people are very happy with a reforestation of the beautiful Andes.
