Inca Trail Operator Gives Back
Sustainability and Social Programs go Hand in Hand
Cusco, Peru - Hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is on the life list for many travelers. This iconic destination is one of the 7 Wonders of the World and one of the most popular hikes in the world. This kind of challenging hike through rugged mountain trails, camping at night is not something to be taken lightly and requires a licensed guide to safely navigate. Alpaca Expeditions is 100% Peruvian company offering many itineraries to reach Machu Picchu dedicated to providing the most memorable experience possible for their guests
Life can be very challenging for local residents of the Andes in Peru. Founding owner Raul Ccolque grew up here and it is his goal with Alpaca Expeditions to provide opportunity for employment to his fellow Peruvians. From the beginning Alpaca has paid premium wages and provided benefits of life and health insurance to all staff. They receive training and are able to progress in responsibilities within the company. They are now hiring and training women porters for a co-ed program.
Alpaca Expeditions has been a leader in the movement to improve the quality of life for their porters. Not only do they make sure they have proper shoes, clothing and gear for use on the trail; they regularly go out into the villages where farmers eke out a living as subsistence farmers, growing potatoes and herding llamas and alpacas. Providing resources to these people have included bringing in teachers, computers and school supplies to increase opportunities for the future.
Their latest project took place August 19 when they brought in a team of dentists and assistants to take care of the dental hygiene of one of the villages. Alpaca staff and guides assisted Dr Joshuar Blanco, DDS and his team who donated their time and expertise to bring an opportunity for the residents of Choquekancha to receive dental attention right in their village!
Alpaca Expeditions is a leader in all tours in Peru; including being a licensed Inca Trail Tour Operator. They are 100% Peruvian who grew up in villages around Cusco learning about the greatness of the Incas. Their goal to make the world a better place begins with supporting their own community.
