Volume 22

The Inca Trail and its impact on community-based tourism
The Inca Trail (Qhapac Ñan in Quechua) with an extension of more than 30,000 kilometers, is considered the most extensive network of roads in pre-Columbian America. It was built to control the Inca empire and crosses six countries: Argentina, Chile, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, and Colombia. It was declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in June 2014. There are sections still in use by the local population and others of great touristic interest. Throughout the region, many community-based and rural tourism organizations are established. In this webinar, various perspectives on the impact of Inca engineering on the surrounding communities, with applicable sustainability practices for community engagement discussed.
