The Andes' most compelling country, thanks to attractions including bustling capital Lima with its colonial core; remnants of ancient civilizations like the Nazca lines, Machu Picchu, and temples of Cuzco; and the eco-lodges of the Peruvian Amazon.

Thanks for I great reply Nina. But still even though we know that Machu Picchu is One of the Seven Wonders of the World and for that Machu Picchu doesn't need any other extra stuff in order to pimpoint the celebration of the centenial of the discovery of this Sacred Place; we should keep in mind that it is not just a simple celebration but its centenial and that deserves not little but much more and "something much more typical". About the way it is going to be held; there are opinions and not everybody can be happy about it; we have to consider and do all we can to find the right ways to do so and try to preserve all we have. Thanks for your idea again and Let's do a little in order to promote the pracetice of Rresponsible Tourism the way we do at

Regarding the Centennial;  I will try not to get on my bandwagon here.  I think it is important to recognize and be grateful but I am not in agreement with the choice of how the celebration will take place at the actual site.  I do not think that this sacred and natural area needs to be stomped on, electrified, blasted, illuminated, etc.  I see no need to run the electricity to illuminate the area at night.  I see no need to have internatoinal celebrities performing at the site and I could go on.  I hope my feelings are received in the manner in which I intend them.  I care deeply about this area and consider it my home in many way.  I think there should be celebrations and I think they should be done in a way that shows respect to the natural and delicate balance of the area.  There are many fabulous areas in the Southeast that can more easily recieve and hold larger crowds.  I understand that this will be a great income sourse for some but with it would  be handled differently.

The centenial of Machu Picchu

Peru’s President sent greetings of prosperity, employment and happiness to all Peruvian families in 2011. Garcia also gave a special greeting to Armed Forces and National Police, which are responsible for public security and will work today without a break on these celebrations. He also addressed the poor people who may not celebrate these holidays, and wished prosperity, employment and happiness for them.

Lots of celebrations are going to be held all over Peru in 2011 in order to celebrate Machu Picchu’s Centenial to the World.

Ancient Summit's work in Peru - This is the trailer to the yet to be completed documentary filmed around some of the work we do in Peru.  I have been involved for over 28 years and the rewards are incredible.

"Peru Backpack Project". Preparing another group of American HS students to travel to Peru next month.  I think it's harder to prepare the parents than the students! 

My heart is warmed by the outpouring of community support for collecting gently-used backpacks to take with us.  Boy Scout troops and people who don't even know us, are bringing backpacks for us to take down!

We are so excited about having botanist/wildfood expert on our trip.  We were able to hook up with a Turkish woman who will make a documentary of our trip after our first videographer had to cancel.  Students have started a countdown til our departure
on their FB pages.  We're all excited!

I don't think it's only ilegal loggers; but also multinationals which do not care about the enviromment and indigenous villages such as this one but their own interests. Let's work responsibly all together!

CNN:  In an effort to ramp up pressure for Peru to crack down on illegal loggers in its region of the Amazon, an indigenous rights organization has released what it says are photos of an uncontacted tribe in Brazil that is threatened by the logging across the border.  Problem is, will this really stop logging?
