This South American country is located on the west coast, with Ecuador and Colombia to the north, Chile to the south, and Brazil and Bolivia to the east.
Peru is a great place to visit for anyone who loves hiking, as it is home to the Andes mountain range and the world's highest tropical mountain, Huascarán. There are also plenty of Inca ruins to explore, such as Machu Picchu, which is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. You will also find the world's deepest canyon, Colca Canyon, the world's highest lake, Lake Titicaca, and the Nazca Lines, a series of massive ancient geoglyphs.
Peruvian food is incredible, with dishes like ceviche (raw fish marinated in citrus juice), lomo saltado (a stir-fry of beef, tomatoes and onions) and papa a la huancaina (potatoes in a spicy cheese sauce) being just some of the delicious options on offer.
