Sustainability

Although Mountain Lodges of Peru has historically had an active yet private role in the socioeconomic development of the communities to which we neighbor, in 2006 MLP sponsored the creation of  an NGO named Yanapana Peru. Yanapana Peru has set two important goals for its first stage of development: 1) to elevate the level of education for more than 150 families in the area; 2) to give an incentive to the local population to take an active role in the development of tourism in the area.
