Regarding the recent forest fires that have occurred in the buffer zone around Machu Picchu in the past few days, we would like to inform tourists and the general public that the Peruvian government, through relevant authorities, has taken immediate actions to control the situation.
It is important to note that the affected area is located far from the tourist corridor, has not endangered the archaeological site of Machu Picchu, and poses no threat to tourists or the local population.
