This has been highly appreciated by all of our trekkers who want a private, clean and sanitary toilet!! Orange Nation Peru toilet facilities have an individual tent and a “camping toilet with a seat.” Check out the picture below which illustrates how we set up our camping toilet on the trek. Our toilet is always set up a comfortable distance from our campsite. At night if you need to use the toilet it is readily accessible and clean. We protect our environment by using Responsible and Sustainable facilities. We make a hole 30 cm deep under the seat and the solid waste goes right in. At the end of our stay we will fill it in without creating any contamination to the environment, Orange Nation Peru will NOT use any chemicals which contaminates the environment. We do NOT put the waste into plastics or even biodegradable plastics, because they are still destructive to our environment and we really care about protecting our earth. We protect our crew with our toilet procedures. They will not have to be touching the waste because it is in the hole. We really care about protecting our team Our team is what really makes Nation Peru Peru stand out from all of the other competitors! TIPS: Please always take your own toilet paper with you and put it into the plastic bag provided!
