No matter where you are in Peru, north or south, if you look closely, you will spot ,up in the mountains, traces of this fantastic engineer road system. And yes, hiking the inca trails is, most definitely, one of the most emblematic adventure activities Peru offers, and to walk into Machu Picchu through the Sun Gate just like its ancient inhabitants did is, without a doubt, one of the most thrilling experiences any traveler can have.
Peru is also the cradle of the Amazon river which main tributary rivers are born in the Andes and flow down eastward crossing and nurturing vast extensions of land and rainforests which today are natural reserves and a paradise for all travelers who want to have a close and deep interaction with nature.
