Peru Travel

Peru is one of the world’s most spectacularly beautiful, and culturally significant destinations. It's unparalleled biodiversity includes magnificent Andean peaks, the world's highest navigable body of water (Lake Titicaca), the steaming elegance of the Amazon River basin, and the fascinating wildlife of the Paracas National Reserve. Peru is also home to more ancient structiures, artifacts, and unresolved mysteries than just about anywhere else on the planet.  From the Nazca Lines, to  the otherworldy citadel of Machu Picchu, a trip to Peru is a stunning and unforgettable experience. 

Machu Picchu

High above the spectacular Sacred Valley at 8040ft, Machu Picchu is flanked by steep cliffs and lush green mountains that protected the citadel until it was discovered by archaeologist Hiram Bingham in 1911. With dreamlike vistas of the snowcapped Andes on the horizon MachuPicchu is generally accepted as the most important and captivating archaeological remnant of the Incan Empire, Machu Picchu was declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1983 and voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2007. But awards aside, this extraordinary place, like the Taj Mahal, or the great Pyramids, simply cannot be adequately described in words or even pictures.
