Landscape Walks is a project that the Cordillera Conservation Trust is embarking on this year that creates economic opportunities for remote communities by utilising and developing trail systems in the Cordillera Mountains for Hut to Hut trekking that will both provide economic opportunities for the locals through board and lodging for tourists, trail maintenance, guides, and porters while preserving large swaths of landscapes throughout these areas by inducing a move from unsustainable economies to an economy that is based on the local ecosystems beauty.

This will act as the carrot to induce villages and communities to choose conservation rather than unsustainable paths to development. We realise that we must look at the human element of conservation and see understand that everyone wants to work hard to better their place in life and the give a good future for their families -this way we can help them do just that while preserving our beautiful landscapes for future generations to enjoy.

We are developers aiming to change the game. We want to show that conservation and footpaths and preserving our wild spaces can lead to progress too. Trails for progress.
