<b>Peru, a land of contrasts</b>
Peru is a land of contrasts and extremes. At one side, you have this endless desert we saw from <b>Lima till Arequipa</b>. It was sand, dunes & rocks, everywhere you looked, hardly any vegetation and very hot.
Hot enough to conserve the mummies and bones which are lying in the sand of the<b> Cementerio de Chauchilla</b>. And not to forget, the mysterieus<b> Nasca lines</b>.
At the other side you see the impressive <b>Andes Mountains</b>, with high above <b>Lake Titicaca</b>. Close to Cuzco, there is the <b>Holy Urubamba valley</b>. And then of course, hidden in the clouds, “The lost City of the Inca’s”, <b>Machu Picchu</b> !
What a view ! Hiking the el <b>Camino Inca </b>for 4 days and entering by the <b>Intipunku </b>(or Sun Gate), and there you see it,<b> Machu Picchu</b> ! A breathtaking view ! We were very lucky that day that there were no clouds and no mist at all.
<b>FOR MORE PICS ABOUT EACH ITEM, TAKE ALSO A LOOK AT THE TRAVELOGUES</b>
Hike the Inca Trail ! To avoid overcrowded trails & campgrounds, we started at lunch time. Leaving at a different hour... more travel advice
Pisac: After visiting the ruins of Pisac, you can enjoy a fresh orange juice. Remember, the altitude here is about 3000... more travel advice
