Kandoo Adventures, a UK-based company that runs treks to places like Kilimanjaro and Bhutan, has warned customers not to wait if they want to see a wonder of the world. With Machu Picchu imposing even stricter travelling restrictions, the Khumbu Glacier on Everest in decline, and the Great Barrier Reef bleaching, there isn’t much time left for adventurers to visit before they change beyond all recognition.
Jane Deakin, Managing Director, said “Specialising in high altitude trekking, all of the locations where we operate are seeing big changes because of environmental and visitor pressures. If you want to see some of these fantastic places at their best the time to go is today, or even better yesterday.”
The ancient Incan fortress of Machu Picchu typically releases its permits for the next trekking year in February of each year, but the Peruvian government has recently introduced timed permits, limiting the time travellers can spend at the citadel after the days-long hike to get there.

To try and combat the problem, Kandoo Adventures has established the Kandoo Foundation, which invests in the countries where Kandoo Adventures operates in order to promote responsible travel and benefit local communities.
Kandoo Adventures run treks in Bhutan, Aconcagua, Kilimanjaro, Machu Picchu, and Nepal. They also run safaris and other trips for adventurers who want to see natural wonders such as the wildebeest migration across the Serengeti.
