Man trekking in Peru


Peru is home to Machu Picchu, one of the most iconic sites in the world. Yes, it is very popular, but once you are there you just don’t care as it’s just so awe-inspiring. For the trekkers out there, the Salkantay trek is my personal favourite way to visit, and is much quieter than the classic Inca Trail. If you don’t want to camp, though, then visiting by train offers another unique experience.  However you choose to visit, the food is some of the best in Latin America and that alone is worth the trip.

It’s a long time since I went to Peru back in 2004 and am keen to go back one day to experience the breath-taking scenery and colourful culture. My most memorable experience was, without a doubt, Machu Picchu. Nowadays you can do all sorts besides trekking, such as cooking with locals, helping on a farm as well as wildlife in the Amazon – something for everyone!
