The mystical country of Peru stretches from the northwestern coast of South America over the spine of the Andes and into the dense tropical jungle of the Amazon Basin. From its eternal coastal deserts to the highest navigable lake in the world, Peru's landscapes are as diverse as they are spectacular.
Similarly, its rich and ancient cultural heritage, with great civilizations stretching far back in time, make for a fascinating journey. Peru may be synonymous with Inca remains and Spanish colonialism, but much of its mystique derives from the legacy of those who made Peru their home long before.
Apart from being a convenient gateway to many destinations, Lima is a great place to spend a few days absorbing local culture in the many excellent museums and lively street life.
At the end of the day, retreat to your first-class hotel to recharge for your next day of excitement and adventure.
The Inca stronghold of Machu Picchu is set high in the forest-covered mountains, unexplained in existence and staggering in terms of sheer logistics. At 8,200 feet above sea level and covering over five square miles, the ruins of Machu Picchu overlook a lush rainforest in the heart of the Peruvian Andes.
Nearer to the coast lie the equally enigmatic Nazca lines – great designs including monkeys, spiders, and hummingbirds, etched into the desert and are identifiable in their entirety only from the air.
The “White City” of Arequipa, on the other hand, is built of pearly volcanic stone and is magnificent in an almost ethereal way. This beautiful city is the second largest in Peru and tucked away on the altiplano at an altitude of over 7500 feet above sea level.
From here, the Colca Canyon (the deepest in the southern hemisphere) and the sacred waters of Lake Titicaca are easily accessible, as are the wonders of Peru's untouched rainforest and the Manu Biosphere Reserve.
Like everywhere in Peru, this is a great place for nature lovers to revel in exotic and abundant wildlife on guided treks through the jungle. In fact, this virgin corner of our world remains not only unspoiled but also largely unexplored.

When the first wave of Chinese immigrants first came to Peru in the late 1800s, they were considered part of the lowest working class, seeking work in mines and sugar plantations after the country outlawed slavery.
