PERU TO PROMOTE ALTERNATIVE INCA TRAILS
AROUND CUSCO

The Inca roads that link Machu Picchu, Choquequirao, Vilcabamba
& Espiritu will be marketed as new alternatives for Cusco's tourism,
announced the Regional Directorate of Culture in the Imperial City.
"This road network will provide alternatives for tourists visiting
Machu Picchu and reduce the pressure that exists on our world
wonder. Furthermore, this will propel adventure travel and
ecotourism in La Convencion province.
The work will be done in the framework of the Comprehensive
Machu Picchu Project, which will be presented in Quillabamba and
also includes the implementation of the Andean Amazon Museum.
The famed Inca Trail to Machu Picchu currently attracts thousands of
hikers each year; during high season, permits are sold out weeks
or months in advance, and the trail must be closed each February
for maintenance. The new trails will offer alternatives.

Dear Mariana,

I have already briefly indicated to you that the feedback from this
group had been quite positive. I have now heard from almost all
of the group and am in a position to give you a more
comprehensive report. Without exception, everyone has singled
out Margarita. She left no stone unturned to ensure that
everything ran smoothly and seems to have worked
almost 24 hours a day ...............
Overall, the group absolutely loved Peru - the country, the sights
and, above all, the people. Thank you for all your help in putting
this tour together.
Please say a big, big, big THANK YOU t Margarita who was just
wonderful with this group.

Warm regards,

Patricia
