The Andes! The Incas! Fabulous mountain scenery and trekking, exhilarating weather, the wonderful architecture of the Incas and always an option to drop off the Andes into the Amazon basin. Add to that the special vibrancy, colour and cacophony of its Andean and colonial culture and a visit to Peru is an experience seldom matched anywhere in the world. Cordillera Blanca and Huayhuash The Cordillera Blanca and Cordillera Huayhuash, with 40 peaks over 6000m are a remarkable part of the mighty Andes. The scenery and trekking easily rival that of Nepal and the Himalayas, with the added bonus of fewer trekkers and generally a fine and settled weather pattern from May to September. Cusco and Machu Picchu Cusco and Machu Picchu need little introduction. To combine a visit to Cusco, with a trek along the 'Inca Trail' (or train ride) to Machu Picchu remains an experience of a lifetime.
