…¡¡¡Earth is our homeland and sustainable Tourism is the way to go!!!….

before-you-goPeru is located in the southern hemisphere at 13 degrees form the equatorial line and has great geography, rich tradition, mysterious site and stunning biodiversity which make very important country to visit.

Sunrise Peru Trek understand Sustainable and 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, tradition 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 travelers 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.

Sustainable travel is not only respecting local people and the environment, it’s about traveling with your eyes and ears open and making sure your visit has a positive social, environmental and economic impact.
