Machu Picchu & Peru
Peru is a land of extremes - from lush, towering Andean peaks to rolling sand dunes on the Peruvian coast, to the largest, most diverse rainforest in the world, the Amazon rainforest. Peru is also rich in pre-Colombian culture with millions of citizens in the Andes Mountains who still live, speak and work the way their ancestors did thousands of years ago.
Peru is situated on the Pacific coast of South America between Ecuador and Bolivia and west of Brazil. The Amazon makes up half of Peru, the Andes Mountains occupy a third and the rest is coastal desert.
Some things not to miss on your trip to Peru:
Cusco, The Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, and the Inca Trail offer a glimpse into the mysterious and fascinating history of the Incas. Many other lesser known but equally breathtaking trekking opportunites and cultural experiences await in Peru's Sacred Valley.
Lake Titicaca is the world's highest navigable lake spanning from Peru to the border of Bolivia with over 30 islands, some inhabited, with cultures dating back to the pre-Colombian era.
Lima, the capital city, claims some of Peru's best museums, including one of the largest in South America.
Arequipa is a stunning town located at the base of the beautiful valley of El Misti volcano. It offers a relaxed, romantic environment complete with colonial charm and rich cultural heritage.
