From 2020, in the historic sanctuary of Machu Picchu, tourist icon of Peru, work will begin to enable two more access for tourists, which will favor the arrival of new tourist attractions.
One of the routes that will be implemented will be the so-called “Amazonian access” that will integrate the Intihuatana community with sludges from San Miguel, Inkarakay, Mandor, Puente Ruinas to Machu Picchu Pueblo.
The second corridor will connect the communities of Choquellusca, border with Piscacucho, district of Ollantaytambo, with San Antonio de Torontoy, up to Machu Picchu Pueblo.
The projects, which seek to enhance the cultural, natural and social heritage, decentralize tourism and boost the local economy, were approved in the last session of the municipal council.
The thousands of visitors who access the archaeological park can now enjoy much more in Machu Picchu.
The municipality of Machu Picchu also contemplates the improvement of pedestrian routes, with the extension of the surface, cleaning and clearing; tourist breaks and viewpoints will be built; there will be interpretation centers, report booths, hygienic services, and waste and organic waste bins will be installed.
In the sections there will be botanical gardens with native plants, in other places it will be reforested with native plants, the comuneros will be trained and sensitized on environmental issues, biodiversity will be evaluated based on climate changes, among others, all with a budget that will reach the four million suns.
The comuneros will assure a good service and the enjoyment with own experiences of the place and immaterial culture, along the floor of the valley as an alternative route to the traditional Inca Trail.
