What to do in Peru

Peru is about more than places, spectacular as they are, but also about what to do in those places. The Andes reward the adventurous, and there are a number of famous walking trails in and around the Sacred Valley and incorporating incomparable Macchu Pichu. For culture vultures, the Pisac Market is a must, and for waterbabies the surfing in Mancora is top quality. Finally, exploring the upper reaches of the Amazon is often overlooked as an option, but represents yet another perfect Peruvian experience:
