Peru: the very name conjures images of mysterious ancient civilizations and exceptional panoramas. Visit the Monastery of Santa Catalina in beautiful Arequipa and the Museo Santuarios Andinos to see the mummy Juanita, the ‘Ice Maiden’ who was sacrificed to the Inca gods in the 15th century. Explore the incredible Colca Canyon and watch condors flying close to the canyon walls from the Cruz del Condor viewpoint. Take the Inca Trail to the awe-inspiring Machu Picchu, or if you aren’t up to a long hike, ride a horse to see the Inca ruins at Sacsayhuamán. Wander round the ancient city of Caral with its 5000 year-old pyramids and visit the adobe city of Chan Chan. Take to the air and fly over the incredible Nazca Lines, explore Manu National Park and ride a dune buggy at the Huacachina Oasis.

Peru Travel Stories
Chacha Picchu, New Discoveries in Amazonas, Peru As a sometime archaeologist and dedicated adventurer, I have been poking around backcountry Peru since the1960s. While making an income by guiding adventure programs, I have been compiling data on Inca roads and sites associated with the last Incas. For the past several years, I have focused my interest on Choquequirao, an unusual Inca ceremonial site located spectacularly high above the Apurimac... Read more >>>
Southern Comfort....My Trip on the Amazon I couldn't believe it--my fourth day on the Amazon! Dawn was misty and cold--two things I never expected to encounter, but then, I never expected to encounter most of what I was seeing on this trip. I had joined a small group in the Miami airport for the once-per-week direct flight to Iquitos, Peru, gateway to the upper Amazon. Now, standing on the top deck of our ship, the Explorer, I marveled... Read more >>>
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Machu Picchu A group of red-faced, perspiring Americans are working their way up a steep stone path into the nooks of a 550-year-old Inca settlement about 20 miles outside of Cuzco. Looking down on the Urubamba River, a silver ribbon winding 1.500 feet below, they have reason to wheeze. And their unruffled tour guide, who has yet to break a sweat,... Read more >>>
Machu Picchu Abandoned, a Summary Machu Picchu was probably built by Pachacuti Inca as a royal estate and religious retreat in 1460-70. After his death, it remained the property of his allus (kinship groups) who were responsible for maintenance, administration and continuing building. As a remarkable sacred site (location as well as buildings), it surely was visited by Topa Inca and the last great ruler, Huayna Capac, although... Read more >>>
The Birds of the Manu Biosphere Reserve The Manu Biosphere Reserve has, within it's boundaries, the highest concentration of bird life on Earth. At the time of writing approximately 925 species have been recorded and ornitholigists expect this figure to break the 1000 mark in the near future as remoter areas of the reserve are explored. There are a little under 9000 species of birds in the world therefore, Manu holds one in every nine... Read more >>>
To Machu Picchu by Orient Express There are times for roughing it and times for not. Peru, with its Third World plumbing, is one of those places where a comfortable hotel room is greatly prized. I've heard about freezing temperatures at some of the less expensive hotels in densely populated Cuzco and more primitive Aguas Calientes. Bear in mind that in Cuzco (at... Read more >>>
