Apus Peru Mountain Search and Rescue Training

Apus Peru > Uncategorized > Apus Peru Mountain Search and Rescue Training

November through February is wet season in Cusco, which means fewer visitors and the opportunity for Apus Peru staff to participate in in-depth training workshops!  This year training topics included first aid, search and rescue, cooking courses, sustainable tourism practices, and environmental care. The following photos are from our mountain search and rescue workshop, which was led by the local Red Cross (Cruz Roja).
