Images of Peru: Nazca Lines from the air, condors wheeling over Colca Canyon, glorious Machu Picchu. Classic icons set in a rugged land. Some visitors are surprised, then, to encounter some of the Amazon’s richest jungle experiences are here too: the macaws and parrots gathering around a clay lick is as joyously colourful a sight, as wildly cacophonous a treat, as any Incan market in Cusco or Pisac. Elsewhere, the islands dotting vast Lake Titicaca – absurdly clear light, impossibly high altitude, lost-in-time cultures – are unforgettable, and the Inca Trail, a tough, rugged, inspiring trek, is one of the world’s great walks. Or head north, to trek in Peru’s northern Cordillera, the highest tropical mountains in the world, where solitary splendour and widescreen panoramas await.
