Posted on : 22 February 2021
If you think about the places that you would like to visit in Peru before you die, you would like to visit the whole country. However, certain places surround you with their magic and beauty. You can visit these places on your own or with a formal and professional agency like Peru Private Tours.
I make a special list of the 10 places you must visit in Peru before dying.
1. Machu Picchu
If you could travel back in time and see the splendor of the Incas, I assure you would be in Machu Picchu. This Inca city is a unique place that I assure it will surprise you and exceed any expectations you have since it has a natural beauty that surrounds it and its buildings are a tangible example of the glory of the Inca empire.
That is the reason I advise you to book Machu Picchu private tour or a shared tour to get to this world wonder.
The value of Cusco for the Inca was because it was the capital of the Inca empire. Its original name is ‘Qosqo’ it means ‘‘navel of the earth ’. This Inca city was the center of the Incas operations and their entire nation. In Cusco, the Incas built their royal palaces and temples dedicated to the sun god, the stars, the moon, among others. Upon the arrival of the Spanish, the architecture was modified, however, the same rocks were used to build churches and houses for the Spanish. As you will see, the history of Cusco is enough, so I recommend that you book Cusco City Tour promptly and you can visit all the Inca sites that are still standing in the city of Cusco.
This Inca fortress is located 2 kilometers from the main square of Cusco. And its structure is surprising and wonderful. You can visit this wonder by Cusco City Tour.
4. Palcoyo mountain
This mountain is known as “the other Rainbow mountain” of Cusco because this is a geological formation of 3 mountains that offers a unique view of the colors of the earth. Here you can see the landscape of reddish, green, blue, and white colors. You must visit this wonder before it becomes very popular with travelers. You can book your visit to Palcoyo mountain with Peru private tours.
Mancora is the most famous beach in Peru and it does not only offer you paradisiacal beaches but it also offers you high-level gastronomy. You can visit it any time of the year, but it is better to visit in summer (December-March). The sunsets in Mancora are a natural spectacle.
6. Manu National Park
The Manu National Park is a protected natural area. This natural area is located between Madre de Dios and Cusco. The Manu is considered to have the greatest biological diversity in the world. To visit Manu you must make your reservation in advance since the tours to this natural park are not daily. You can book your visit to Manu with Peru private tours.
The city of Lima is the capital of Peru and the gastronomic capital of America. Its charm is in its colonial streets and the contrast it has with the modernity of the city. Also, its exit to the sea has formed curious landscapes.
8. Nazca Lines
They are a group of geoglyphs whose origin is attributed to the Nazca (ancient culture of Peru), their creation is a mystery until now. This is the reason that many theories have been developed. If you believe in aliens, you must visit the Nazca lines.
The Salkantay mountain offers you great natural beauty since it is a snowy peak that forms several lagoons along its ascent. Also this snowy is considered as an “Apu” in the Inca culture.
10. Sacred Valley of the Incas
This is the famous valley that the Incas lived in for being a fertile land of great beauty. Currently, you can visit the Sacred Valley of the Incas with a tour that runs through Pisaq, Urubamba, Ollantaytambo, and Chincheros, on this tour you can glimpse the magnitude of the Incas and the beauty of their architecture. You can book a sacred valley tour with Peru private tours.
