List of some interesting travel sites in Peru
Standing 2,430 m above sea level, in the midst of a tropical mountain forest in an extraordinarily beautiful setting, Machu Picchu was probably the most amazing urban creation of the Inca Empire at its height. Its giant walls, terraces and ramps seem as if they have been cut naturally in the continuous rock escarpments.
Travel tips: In order to catch the sun rise and to get the best view, we recommend staying in Aguas Calientes the previous night and take the earliest bus to the citadel. You also need to buy the entrance ticket to the citadel in advance.
Iquitos in the Amazon Basin
Iquitos is the largest city in the Peruvian rainforest and is regarded as the Capital of the Peruvian Amazon. Amazon river lodges near Iquitos are a treat for nature lovers.
Travel tips: It is a great experience to stay in an amazon river lodge, either up or down the river from Iquitos, on the banks of its tributaries
Lake Titicaca is a lake in the Andes on the border of Peru and Bolivia. By volume of water, it is also the largest lake in South America. Titicaca is notable for a population of people who live on the Uros, a group of 44 or so artificial islands made of floating reeds (totora, a reed that abounds in the shallows of the lake). These islands have become a major tourist attraction for Peru, drawing excursions from the lakeside city of Puno.
Travel tips: Visiting the Uros floating islands is an excellent experience.
