Peru: Explore the Rainforest, History, and Birding

What to See and Do

Peru’s location allows you to marvel at alpine ridges and then trek through the thick heat of the Amazon rainforest, all in one. Walk trails laid hundreds or thousands of years ago as you pass ruins hidden deep in the lush rainforest.

Or choose to ascend to new heights and watch as the peaks of the Andes break the clouds with their white-tipped tops. Hike popular trails or hidden off-the-beaten paths to see views of natural lakes and forest.

Birder’s Paradise

Peru has over a dozen top spots to catch sight of their more than 1850 species of birds. Explore remote areas of the Andes Mountains for a chance to see Fire-throated Metaltail, Rufous-backed Inca-Finch or maybe even catch an undocumented bird!

Prefer the rainforest? Catch sight of colorful parrots and macaws while watching out for river otters in Tambopata National Reserve.

Or re-connect with the past while exploring ancient cities like Cuzco and on the lookout for a completely different set of birds. Peru is ranked with Colombia as having one of the longest bird lists.

UNESCO World Heritage Site

Combine an ancient civilization displaying intricate and complex architecture, surrounding vistas of lush, green mountain tops peeking through low cloud covers, and the Urubamba River lazily encircling the valleys, and you find yourself at mysterious Machu Picchu. Arguably one of the biggest draws for this South American country.

Considered a royal residence or religious site for the Incas among various speculations, this majestic UNESCO World Heritage Site leaves you breathless as your eyes take in the terraces, temples and residences, all constructed according to the Incas’ caste system.

The higher your status in society, the smoother and more refined was your housing structure. You can clearly see these changes in the architecture as you walk along the stones. Climb down an ultra-steep, narrow staircase leading into the abyss – not for the faint of heart!
