4) PERU’S CULTURE AND TRADITIONS
Peru is full of traditions that maintain the legacy of its ancient civilisations; their customs have remained intact over centuries. Many of the festivals, rituals, and actual ways of life have survived from the pre-Columbian era. One place we particularly recommend visiting to appreciate these traditions is Uros and the Taquile Islands at Lake Titicaca in Puno where you can discover how ancient Peruvians lived.
5) PERU’S GEOGRAPHIC DIVERSITY
Peru proudly boasts three gloriously diverse geographic regions, the coast, the Andes highlands and the Amazon jungle. Even during a short visit, Peru’s diversity is more than evident. A 15-hour bus ride can take you from the desert coast to the chilly heights of the Andean mountain range which lead to the incredible Peruvian Amazon.
