From sacred Inca ruins, to Amazonian jungle and a hell of a lot of dessert in between, Peru is where backpacking in Latin America started. Enjoy it...
A country of white beaches, snowy peaks, barren desert and lush jungle, Peru is a mythical land of natural extremes and contradictions. Throw in lost cities, sacred valleys, the world's most inaccessible city and the fourth largest metropolis on the continent and you've got yourself one hell of an itinerary. With the staggering ruins of Machu Picchu and the tourist industry that has erupted as a result, Peru has, in parts, one of the more developed tourist infrastructures in South America. However, don't think this means it's difficult to get off the beaten track. The north remains largely unexplored by the whistle-stop flashpacking types, and even in the more touristy south, utter emptiness is never far away. It is fair to say that Latin American travel was born in Peru. Come and find out why.
