The land of the Incas Peru has a spectacular nature with the Amazon in the north, the Andes in the east, Lake Titicaca in the southeast and a long coastal strip towards the Pacific Ocean. The wildlife is also very interesting – with an emphasis on hay! In the Andes, the condor floats freely, llamas and alpacas are an everyday sight, guinea pigs are part of the menu. On a journey through the varied landscapes of Peru, you get the opportunity to see river dolphins, piranhas, monkeys, iguanas, condors and llamas, high peaks and deep ravines. Well they are about being physically fit. The Inca ruins of Cusco and Machu Picchu are unforgettable places as well as the meandering Amazon River that flows up inside Peru which is abbreviated as PE by abbreviationfinder. You want to experience it and Peru delivers – at a high level!
Amazonas is the world’s largest contiguous rainforest area. The two million hectare Pacaya Samiria Nature Reserve in northern Peru has one of the most intact ecosystems in all of South America. This is one of Peru’s best-preserved areas for rainforest animal, bird and plant life. As Pacaya Samiria can only be reached by boat, only a small crowd of visitors have the opportunity to reach this remote and beautiful part of the Amazon.
Cusco & Machu Picchu
Cusco is the ancient capital of the Inca Empire, located at an altitude of 3,400 meters, beautifully situated in the Urubamba Valley. Here you explore some of the Inca culture’s incomprehensibly well-preserved remains and visit colorful Native American markets. One of the highlights will be the hike along the mythical Inca Trail to the Inca Empire’s secret city, Machu Picchu. The indescribably magnificent views – with several 6,000 meter high glacier-covered mountain peaks – and the magical moss-covered cloud forest complete this nature and cultural journey.
Colca Canyon is considered the world’s deepest ravine. The valley was populated long before the Spaniards came here. The people here built amazing terraces that are sometimes almost vertical and still work perfectly. From Cruz del Condor you have a magnificent view of Colca Canyon, it feels like the world is opening up at your feet. Here are great chances to see the world’s largest flying bird, the condor. For those who want to take it easy and enjoy a little, there are hot springs in Chivay where you can take a relaxing bath.
