The most interesting and beautiful tourist sites in Peru
Photos, reviews, descriptions, and links to maps
Peru is still the lost world for many tourists. The life of the Amazon and ancient civilisations holds many mysteries and secrets. They are what make Peru so attractive. There are unique flora and fauna, good ocean beaches, carpeted deserts and mountains where the biggest birds on the planet live – the condor has a wingspan of about three metres. It is truly fantastic to see it five metres above you.
The Sacred Valley of the Incas in the Cusco area is the main attraction of the country. There is a railway to the ancient city of Machu Picchu, but you need to know that access for tourist groups is limited. Only 400 people can visit it per day. The mountainous part of Peru is extraordinarily beautiful, in the mountainous city you just want to be silent from the splendour. The only trouble that can happen is mountain sickness. Stock up on Coca leaves and tea – it’s great for relieving its symptoms.
