You can be a traveler who likes to try new things and craves thrills, but you’re missing out if you haven’t been to Peru yet. Even though Peru’s history is interesting, you don’t need to know much about the country to enjoy its beauty. The famous Inca Trail is in Peru, the country’s most-visited place. But Peru has more to offer than just that. There are many other beautiful places all around this scenic and exciting spot.
Huacachina is a small, charming town surrounded by tall dunes, making it an unusual sight. Huacachina was a favorite of Peru’s elites in the past, and it still draws tourists from all over the world today. Sandboarding and buggy rides just on dunes are the most famous things to do in this town.
This road to Machu Picchu is a paradise for people who like to try new things. It runs 42 km through the Andes Mountains, from Aguas Calientes to Machu Picchu, passing through deep forests and Inca ruins. The nicest aspect about the route is that being at such a high altitude may give you adrenaline but can also lead you to suffer some altitude sickness signs. It won’t bother you as much if you hike with great courage. It will be a lot of fun, even though the nights will be cold and the hike will take a few days.
Time to look at the place that everyone thinks of when they think of Peru. You might think it’s a cliche and Machu Picchu is the obvious choice when you go to Peru, but if you think about that now, it’s all people talk about when they talk about Peru.
Head to Cusco and take the train early in the morning to see this beautiful world heritage site’s breathtaking view. Machu Picchu’s history is very interesting, but the view and atmosphere are so delightful that you can’t miss it. It isn’t one of the world’s most popular tourist spots for nothing.

Santa Catalina Monastery
The Santa Catalina Monastery in Peru was built in the Mujedar style in 1579. It is in the Arequipa region. It stands out because its walls are beautifully painted. The monastery is over 20,000 square meters, and you shouldn’t miss it even if you’ve visited many other historic places in Peru. Even though it is a place of worship, the Santa Catalina Monastery is almost like a city fortress.
Guides who speak English, Spanish, Italian, French, German, or Japanese can show visitors around the monastery. Until the monastery closes, people can walk through the halls independently. At night, the only thing that lights up the monastery is the light from the candles. The area is said to be more spiritual at this time of year.
