Inca & Adventure

Machpicchu ruins
Machu Picchu "the lost city of the Incas" discovered by Hiram Bingham in 1911, is reached by a fascinating train journey from Cusco. The ruins continue to enchant visitors with their exquisite stonework, perched on precipitous slopes overlooking the Urubamba Valley.

The Nazca Lines are located in the Pampa region of Peru, the desolate plain of the Peruvian coast 400 Km. South of Lima, covering an area of approximately nearly 400 square miles of desert.
Nasca lines
Etched in the surface of the desert pampa sand about 300 hundred figures are made of straight lines and geometric shapes most clearly visible from the air. They were supposedly built by an ancient civilization called the Nazca.

Visit Nasca, Arequipa and the Colca Canyon, Puno and Uros Island of Lake Titikaka, Cusco and Machu Picchu.
