Mountain Lodges of Peru: A New Path for Eco-Friendly Hikers
Mountain Lodges of Peru (MLP) has designed an eco-friendly luxury resort trail system for hikers trying to find an alternative, less-worn route to Machu Picchu.
MLP’s plans have included helping the 200 families living along the route and creating the Yanapana Peru to work directly with local artisans and craftspeople to provide resources to develop their skills and launch businesses.
MLP also has developed an eco-team that designs sustainability projects for each lodge and works with the community to provide resources for reforesting. This mutual relationship helps tourists get both a genuine and eco-friendly experience while providing sustainable income in eco-tourism to the local communities.
