Machu Picchu and the Inca Trail are at the top of many peoples' bucket lists and for good reason. First time visitors to this Unesco World Heritage site can sense how the atmosphere of mystery and intrigue permeates the air of this remote location. Perched in a secluded hidden valley amongst the Andean mountains it is easy to imagine what the Ancient Inca Citadel must have looked like when Hiram Bingham first chanced across it. Thousands now follow in his footsteps and are left in awe at the crowning jewel of the Inca Kingdom.
Although obviously a "must see", Peru is much more than Machu Picchu though. Lima serves up some of the finest cuisine in the world and mind-blowingly beautiful routes like the Huayhuash circuit in Huaraz are amongst the world's best treks. History steeper colonial cities such as Cusco and Arequipa and national wonders of the Amazon rainforest in Manu National Park - you could spend months exploring Peru and still long to return for more.
