LIMA 

The Miraflores district & the Huaca Pucllana is Lima’s most affluent area that sits on a coastal bluff. It meanders above wave-pounded shingle beaches in a series of neatly trimmed parks, cosmopolitan bars and shops.

Farther inland, you’ll stumble across the Huaca Pucllana, a rambling, adobe-brick remnant of an indigenous culture (usually referred to as the Lima Culture) that flourished here between 200 and 700 AD. 

The Plaza de Armas is the original grandiose heart of Francisco Pizarro’s 16th-century settlement is still a major focal point of Lima’s modern metropolis. It’s a sprawling paved square with manicured, flowered lawns, flanked on all sides by buildings that speak of the city’s centuries of pomp and circumstance.

Amid all this officialdom, you find indigenous people wandering around hawking for photo opportunities, often accompanied by a lamb or a llama, while Limeños and visitors alike sit and eat their lunch in the central grassy zones.

CUSCO, URUMBABA VALLEY, VINICUNCA, MACHU PICCHU. etc. 

CuscoBirthplace of the world

Seductive, striking and natural, Cusco’s history lives in its streets, squares, valleys and towns. Stunning destinations and examples of fine engineering by Inca stonemasons can be seen in Choquequirao, Saysayhuamán, Kenko, Tambomachay, Ollantaytambo and Machu Picchu, the Inca jewel built with the wisdom of the ancient Peruvians in an ecological environment. Captivating landscapes such as the Sacred Valley, where the mountains are clothed by terraces.

URUMBABA Valley

The Sacred Valley is a popular destination in Peru’s Cusco area, and a day trip is sure to be filled with many magical moments.

There are numerous monuments to admire and you’ll pass through a number of towns and villages, each with their own unique flavor.

The verdant Urubamba Valley is given life by the gushing Urubamba River, home to native wildlife.

Another highlight of the valley is Pisac with its bustling traditional market- browse an array of handicrafts and souvenirs and have light-hearted fun as you barter with vendors to secure the fairest prices for all.

Various activities include rafting, hiking, exciting quad biking and thrilling zip line adventures.

Pisac Town

Boasting one of the area’s most vibrant markets, you’ll find fresh produce, household essentials, handicrafts, clothes, souvenirs, and more.

 

The colonial village sits beneath a hilltop Incan fortress, with an ancient sundial, temple remains, plazas, foundations, and terraces.

There are several places where old and young alike can delight in getting up close and personal with alpacas and other creatures.

Examples include Awana Kancha and the Living Museum of the Andes.

 

From hiking past pristine mountain lakes to relaxing yoga workshops, there are many activities to try too.

VINICUNCA ' Rainbow M0untain'

A unique natural marvel, Rainbow Mountain locally known as Vinicunca, is truly a sight.

The locals revere the mountain, seeing it as sacred. Spiritual rituals and worship have taken place here since before the Incan era, and people still come to the striking mountain to pray, give thanks, and leave offerings.

Colorful layers, formed by mineral deposits, make for an unusual sight, with hues of red, brown, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.

 

Soak up the splendid views of the nearby snow-capped peaks, the Ausangate Glacier, and the verdant valley too.

MACHU PICCHU

Machu Picchu is an Incan citadel set high in the Andes Mountains in Peru, above the Urubamba River valley. Built in the 15th century and later abandoned, it’s renowned for its sophisticated dry-stone walls that fuse huge blocks without the use of mortar, intriguing buildings that play on astronomical alignments and panoramic views. Its exact former use remains a mystery.

It is 80 kilometres (50 miles) northwest of Cusco, on the crest of the mountain Machu Picchu, located about 2,430 metres (7,970 feet) above mean sea level, over 1,000 metres (3,300 ft) lower than Cusco, which has an elevation of 3,400 metres (11,200 ft).
