Hands up who would like to see more trees on the trekking routes in Peru ✋ ✋ ✋ ✋ ✋

Yeah me too!🤙

Well, recently it was announced that Peru will be planting 1 million trees around the sacred Incan ruins of Machu Picchu to reduce mudslides and fires in the region.

I couldn't be happier with this announcement, especially as we have recently launched a new trip and a new route to Machu Picchu in Peru, Machu Picchu - The Hidden Valley

The full statement is shown below from a recent article from the ironically named 'Good News Network' - https://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/peru-planting-million-trees-around-machu-picchu/

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Peruvian President Martin Viscarra launched a reforestation campaign to plant one million trees around the 86,000-acre (35,000-hectare) complex of the iconic archaeological site and surrounding hills.

“We’re here to begin the planting of a million trees in the protected zone around the Machu Picchu sanctuary … [as] a commitment from the government, the region, the municipality and all the citizens who want to protect this world wonder,” said Vizcarra, according to the AFP.
