Few countries in the world can rival Peru for the sheer drama of its archeological sites and the awesome physical beauty of its landscapes. The mist-shrouded peaks of the Andes Mountains envelop Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas, once thought to be mere legend. The Sacred Valley and the royal tomb of Sipan testify to the early inhabitants of Peru. Intriguing riddles remain unsolved such as the dry desert site of the famed Nazca Lines. Peru shares the world’s highest navigable body of water, Lake Titicaca, with Bolivia. Other Peruvian gems include the rainforest of the upper Amazon River; and Colca Canyon, with depths of 11,000 feet, making it twice that of the Grand Canyon. Many of Peru’s ancient cultures and traditions are still splendidly alive in villages such as Pisaq, Willoq, and the floating islands of the Uros culture, where families live much as their ancestors did. Whether hiking the ancient Inca trail, strolling the narrow streets of colonial Cusco, or boating remote Amazonian headwaters, a Peru luxury tour is rather like an extraordinary gourmet meal, where every morsel tastes better than the one before.
