Wired No Longer Lonely at the Top: "Torres, who directs ecotourism and community projects in Huaraz, wrestles with many of the same problems faced by trek leaders in Nepal. How do you ensure that tourist dollars go to the towns on their path, and not just to the city-based tour agencies or hotels that do the booking? How do you keep tourist traffic from eroding fragile hillsides and denuding upland forests for firewood? In 1994, Torres joined the Mountain Forum, an online resource dedicated to the concerns shared by people in the hills. She was glad to find others like Chhetri." High mountain tourism and the Internet has a Peruvian angle. The Mountain Forum is supported by the International Potato Center in Peru.
