The people, high mountains, Inca culture and the Amazon forest


We were in Peru for five weeks and only covered half the country (OK, half of Peru is the Amazon). It’s bigger than a lot of people think.

Our route was the classic ‘gringo trail’ starting from Lima, heading south along the coast, visiting Nasca, then going east and high inland to canyon country, where we explored Arequipa, trekked into the Colca Canyon and cruised Lake Titicaca. From there it was north to Cusco, the centre of Inca culture, and walking the Inca Trail. After the highland experience, we descended to the cloud forest and finally ended our adventure in the Amazon rain forest.

The albums follow the sequence of our trip.
