The Amazon is the world largest rain forest and covers nearly half of Peru. It is home to many species of plants and animals that are unique to the region. Many tribes that call the Amazon home have never even seen the outside world. Being a Shamanic country and having the largest amount of shaman on earth after India, the Amazon is where shamanism continues in its least changed form, where the indigenous people and their ancient wisdom and beliefs remain unchanged.
The Highlands is home to the Andes, the largest mountain range in the world and runs through Peru from north to south. Home of the one of the biggest ancient empires on the planet – the Incan Empire, the Peruvian Andes provides spectacular views of snow capped mountains and glaciers. It is in the Highlands where you will find the most famous temples, palaces and forts built by the Incans, including the most amazing of its creations – Machu Picchu.
