As you might know, I spent four weeks in Peru in october and for those of you who might be thinking about traveling Peru, I put together our travel route, my must see places and some tipps for getting around.
Cusco is famous for the Machu Picchu for sure. Most or even all of the people visiting Cusco also visit Machu Picchu. But besides this the area surrounding Cusco has lots more to offer. For example the Sacred Valley, the salt mines of Maras or the Rainbow Mountains.
5 days of walking up to 9 hours every day. 5 days of challenging oneself again and again. And 5 days full of breathtaking nature and unforgettable experiences. The Salkantay Trek was one of the hardest and most rewarding things I’ve ever done in my life. Read all about this amazing adventure here.
2 days, 22km, 2000m in height and all this on over 3000 meters above sea level. Hiking in Colca Canyon was one of the toughest things I‘ve ever did but it was definitely worth it. Such an amazing countryside and the feeling when you finally reach the top at the end – there are no words to describe this.
I have never been to the desert before but it was one of the best experiences in my life. Such a breathtaking view. We continue our trip through south Peru and explore Ica, Huacachina and Nasca.
