Nowadays most of the Tour operators practice the Inca Trail Responsible Tourism in the National park of Machu Picchu
Earth is our homeland and responsible Tourism is the way to go!!!….
At «Sunrise Peru Trek» understand Responsible Tourism as all about helping to share some of the benefits of tourism with local people without causing negative effects on either the environment or their culture.
Local people can benefit from tourism by means of getting an increased salary which, if managed correctly, can be used to improve standards of education, improved diet and access to medical treatment. Responsible travellers can help people in many of the poorest mountain communities of Peru by following some of the guidelines for low-impact, culturally sensitive and environmentally friendly travel.
Responsible travel is not only respecting local people and the environment, it’s about travelling with your eyes and ears open and making sure your visit has a positive social, environmental and economic impact.
Before you go
Learn something about the countries you want to visit: culture, religion, geography, politics and local customs, we strongly recommend to get a good travel guide such as: Lonely Planet Guides or Handbook. They are very useful before and during your staying.
Try to speak at least a few words of Spanish. You will make a big impression by doing it and it’s also a show of respect and interest on your part.
While you are there
Respect local customs, traditions and culture always ask before photographing local people.
Pay special attention while attending church and religious ceremonies.
Try to support the local economy by buying local products for your grocery needs and locally produced handicrafts.
Never buy products made from endangered species such as coral, shells, feathers, leather or ancient artifact.
Don’t be obsessed with getting the lowest price when haggling. A few pence to you may be a bid deal for the seller.
