Illapa Andean Cultures joins the initiative to plant one million trees in Machu Picchu

21 de February de 2024

For us, it was an excellent start to the year, an initiative led by the National Service of Natural Protected Areas by the State (Sernanp) and the Ministry of Environment. On February 2nd, we all came together to bring this vision to life. We were able to contribute to the planting of one million trees alongside other representatives from travel and tourism agencies operating in the Inca Trail Network, guides, environmental volunteers, the local community, and the team of the Machu Picchu Historic Sanctuary. At Illapa Andean Cultures, we are committed to nature and the surrounding environment.

The reforestation day took place in the Choquelluska area, where over 150 people joined the effort. In this community, we planted trees of the tara species, thus contributing to biodiversity and ecosystem balance.

Reforestation plays a crucial role in helping to protect the soil, preventing erosion, and maintaining optimal levels of moisture for native flora and fauna. Furthermore, it can promote tree care and attract more tourists interested in visiting a Machu Picchu surrounded by natural and picturesque landscapes.

This event was made possible through joint work with various allies and strategic actors for the Sanctuary. The collaboration of tourism operators from the Machu Picchu Historic Sanctuary, Sernanp, and the participation of the Choquelluska community were fundamental to the success of the day.

From Illapa Andean Cultures, we express our deep gratitude to all involved in this conservation effort. We are committed to continue working for the environment and the preservation of our natural heritage. Together, we can make a significant difference in protecting this national treasure.
