Geography of Peru

Peru is the third biggest country in South America, having a population of about 30 min people where about 1/3 of its population lives in the capital Lima. Peru has three climate zones, that vary a lot, namely: coast, mountains (the Andes) and tropical forest (jungle). The coast of Peru starts in the north of Peru and it goes across about 2000km to the south of the country. Some cities that are situated on the coast are: Lima, Nazca with its mysterious lines and Paracas with its original fauna.


When it comes to the Andes, we will find them easily. The highest mountain of Peru is called Huascaran (6768m) and we can find it near Huaraz. In the Andes, we will find as well some of the deepest canyons in the world: Colca Canyon & Cotahuasi Canyon. Southern

Andes are typically consisted of lots of volcanoes which reach the altitude above 6000m. If you are a mountain lover, Peru is a country designed for you. You will find here some of the most beautiful treks in the world (Huayhuash, Ausangate) and you can climb a 6000m volcano!


The tropical forest is the vastest region in Peru (more than a half of Peru consists of the jungle), but as well least populated. The access to the jungle is quite difficult. From Lima you have to take a flight to Iquitos but from Cuzco you can have a flight or take a bus to Puerto Maldonado. Your stay in the jungle will be unforgettable as it is a unique experience being with the nature, not having any connection with the outer world. We highly recommend this experience.


Peruvian cuisine:

When it comes to Peruvian cuisine, you will have a lot to taste! Why? Because this cuisine is very diversified and rich. Each region of Peru has its own local dishes, let’s discover some of them:

  • Ceviche: is made from sea fruits or a fish. It’s cooked with some lemon juice and salt. Seasoned with some onion, pepper and coriander + a sweet potato.
  • Lomo Saltado: popular Peruvian dish that consists of thin slices of beef, seasoned with black pepper, salt, onion and tomatoes. Served with french-fries and rice.
  • Rocoto Relleno: stuffed red pepper. Stuffing inside the rococo can include anything but especially it is meat, served with a melted cheese on the top of it. Be careful, rocoto looks like a red pepper but it doesn’t taste like a red pepper. It is very spice so you shouldn’t eat rocoto but what is inside it.

Remember that in Peru you can find 3000 different kinds of potato!


In Peru you will meet a lot of nice, friendly people. What’s more, in some cities like Cuzco, La Paz or villages like Chivay & Maca you can still find local people wearing their traditional clothes. Peru and Bolivia are perfect places for tourists who love photography.
