Los Tambos Chachapoyanos weighs in
The village of Cuispis approached Los Tambos Chachapoyanos (LTC) in 2008 to create a sustainable infrastructure. LTC has been building lodges for the villages nearest its best archaeological sites for 25 years, giving the natives an incentive to protect their resources. Now retired Charles couldn't afford to continue donating a "yearly tithe" for these communities, so the Amazon Waterfalls Association was formed as an independent volunteer organization to work with the Cuispis Tourist Committee to build a tourist access to this waterfall.
