Bringing love and warmth to Taquile Island, Puno

In the middle of an unforgettable sunset, we took a boat ride to the island of Taquile, crossing the waters of the highest navigable lake in the world in Puno, southern Peru. Our goal: bring warmth to more than 200 children.


Our “compadre” Héctor Huatta, a local inhabitant of the island, warmly welcomed and accommodated us in his house. Thanks to him and HOSEG, the first collaborative Peruvian clothing brand, we managed to accomplish our mission in this community located over 13,000 feet above sea level, where the cold reaches extremely low temperatures.

Reforestation on the Inca Trail

Thanks to the National Service of Natural Protected Areas (SERNANP), the Terra Explorer team participated in a reforestation project where five thousand native trees were planted in the community of Chachabamba, the first section of the legendary Inca Trail.


The stretch of the Inca Trail to the historic sanctuary of Machu Picchu is a protected natural area. It was very gratifying to have contributed, in a small way, to the forest conservation and protection of this important archaeological sector.

Bringing warmth to the children of Huaypo Grande

Once again, thanks to our allies, the Peruvian clothing brand HOSEG, we brought warmth to more than 200 children from the community of Huaypo Grande, located at more than 11,500 feet above sea level, in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, Cusco.


We visited the local school where students, teachers, and family members waited for us with open arms. Each smile is the best reward we can have, and they fill us with desire to continue collaborating with these vulnerable communities in the Andes.
