This one country is filled to the brim with endless experiences. The most popular, of course, is Machu Picchu. Machu Picchu put Peru on the map when it was voted as one of the Wonders of the World. Since then, it’s a very desired must-see bucket list destination for countless people across the world. The breath-taking ruins of Machu Picchu sits on the top of Andes Mountain, a whole city abandoned hundreds of years ago. However, there’s many weeks that entry tickets are sold out, or that the only way into the city is not available, or that the Inca Trail is closed. Be sure to consult a Peruvian Expert to avoid missing out on seeing such a life-changing place in the world.
For anyone wanting to hike to Machu Picchu, there’s a few ways to do it. The Inca Trail is a popular multi-day trek that leads through mountains, countryside, and even a section of rain forest. The Salkantay Trek is another great route to take that is more challenging and leads through the mountains. Before jumping on either of these treks, you can spend a few days in Lima or in Cusco, giving you the best of both worlds through modern cuisine and ancient colonial beauty. Cusco was once the capital of Inca Empire and is known of its archaeological remains and artifacts. It’s a safe and beautiful city filled with stunning architecture, just begging to be explored!
Another great place to visit in Peru is the Amazon rain forest, which is rich in natural life and biodiversity. Stay in an upscale cabin in the rain forest with a private chef and guide, or take a cruise to travel to remote parts of the Amazon. Sacred Valley is home to rich culture and heritage, and Lake Titicaca is the world’s highest navigable lakes making it a great place to spend a few days.
From a stunning scenery that will give you pleasure and tranquility, and dozens of festivals to experience, as well as the colorful Peruvian clothing, folk arts, and artifacts, there’s never a lack of excitement. With all that Peru has to offer, it’s a great destination to visit!
