Description:
Case studies suggest that the number of people mountaineering and trekking has increased over the years across different mountain ranges (Lew and Han, 2015; Rassler, 2014), particularly in the developing world.The number of foreign visitors to the Huascaran National Park (the Andes mountains, Peru) increased from 10,678 in 2011 to 48,971 in 2015, representing an almost fivefold increase in visitor numbers; compared to a 69 per cent increase in visitors to Peru over the same period. The number of hikers and climbers in Aconcagua National Park (west Argentina) has increased by about six times over the last decade, from approximately 1,000 in 1990 to around 6,000 in 2010–2011 – during the five month season from November to March (Barros, Pickering and Gudes, 2015).
