    i would worry too
    although the shining path is not active anymore and most peruvians are friendly, nice and curious of foreigners i would have be cautious and avoid trekking on my own. the terrain is rough and, although he was probably acclimatised, altitude sickness can hit at anytime, my brother still gets hit by it and we lived 3000 mts above sea level as children in peru
    i hope he is found soon, it can get really cold in the andes at night time

    The BBC report describes it as a "relatively safe part of Peru". I wonder what "relatively safe" means. Unfortunately the sight of a lone western traveller can be a huge temptation to local people in many parts of the world.

    Some years ago I went on a small group tour to Sri Lanka, one of the highlights of which was an ascent of the sacred mountain known as Adam's Peak. One of the women in the group took a wrong turn towards the end of the descent and found herself on a more isolated path. Within minutes she found herself the focus of attention of 3 or 4 local men in a potentially very dangerous situation. A group of local women, reading the signs, took her under their protection and ensured she reached their village with them, whence word was got to the tour leader that she was safe. It had been a very worrying few hours, not only for her but for the entire group when it was realised she was missing. In two weeks, that was the only bad experience any of us had with the Sri Lankan people but it could have ended very differently than it did.
