Peru Trip Planner & Country Overview

A meandering Inca Trail traverses the rugged Andes range, Amazonian jungle and Sacred Valley before reaching the legendary Machu Picchu terraced complex. The country's large indigenous populations endeavor to keep ancestral customs intact, and while many have adapted to participate in Peru's tourism economy, mostly as guides or vendors of traditional handicrafts, others remain immensely vulnerable to any external contact. Be the master of your own adventure with this Trip Planner for Peru.
