Peru had a rich cultural life thousands of years before Pizarro turned up in funny clothing. Wander around colonial cities that echo the legacy of Spanish conquistadors, explore the ancient Inca capital of Cuzco, visit the lost city of Machu Picchu and ponder the enigma of the Nazca Lines.
Peru also boasts some of the most spectacular scenery in South America. The beautiful Peruvian Andes issue a siren's call to top-class trekkers. These mountains are also home to squillions of indigenous highlanders, who still speak the ancient tongue of Quechua and live a traditional way of life.

Got the low down from Manuel and headed up and over the hill. First to look out over Cusco under the small Jesus statue - every Central/South American city seems to have one. Then onto Saqsaywaman (POD). The Inca remains here look like you're in a Minecraft ... Read more >
