Tourism is the number 1 industry in Cusco, but historically most jobs have only been open to men. We are working hard to include more and more women in our company in every role … management, guides, chefs and now porters. We make sure that the experience is comfortable and safe for our porters. We have training sessions to make sure that both teammates and men work hand in hand with respect. Being a caretaker is a difficult job and not all women are interested in such a strenuous job, but those who seem to love it.

We are dedicated to our community and environment. We believe that the company should not only focus on how much we grow as a business, but also on our neighbors and the community. We dedicate parts of our income to important social projects that focus on improving the lives of our shippers and their families. We bring doctors and dentists to them, celebrate special moments with clowns and fun activities for their children, plant trees in their town, donate warm jackets and boots.
11. FIRST AID MEASURES
Our guides are extremely well trained in different safety and health emergencies that may arise during one of our Inca Trail Treks. Each guide will have a fully stocked first aid kit complete with legally required medications, thermometers, oximeters, bracelets, bandages, etc. However, we still suggest bringing your own first aid with your preferred medications and remedies.
