No, this list doesn’t include ‘visiting Machu Picchu’ as one of the to-do things! It’s a given that when you visit Peru you do visit these famous tourist attractions. Here we will suggest you the things you can do while you are in Peru if you are in for exploring the place a little more than a regular tourist. Peru tours are simply worth an experience.


  1. Before the Amazon, this is what you should see!


Peru is where the Amazon begins before going its way down the Andes and then into the Amazon basin on the other side. Basically, Peru turns out to be the only South American country where you can experience the different forms of the Amazon. You can meet caiman and paddle canoes along the tranquil waterways. You can explore the river via a boat and connect deeper with the jungle and its people. A number of volunteering projects also take place here so do take time out to help them.


  1. Buy pink Peruvian salt in its markets


Peru has a series of salt pools high within the mountain valley which are fed by one small saltwater stream. The water evaporates during the dry season leaving mineral-rich, highly prized pink Peruvian salt.


  1. A day at Cruz del Condor with condors.


Visit the land where mighty condors rule the roost at Cruz del Condor, the best spot to see the breath-taking view is combined with the sight of these majestic birds take their flight. Here you can also see one of the world’s deepest canyons, Colca.


  1. Give some way for the hiker in you


Once you see the snow-clad peaks of Cordillera Huayhuash, you are sure to tempt to climb it! It is truly a very challenging mountaineering experience. Even reaching just the base camp can give you an absolutely unforgettable view.


  1. Eat like a native


Food is never to be ignored and the roasted guinea pig, definitely not! The cuisines of Peru are a fortune for the brave who like trying something new. If meat isn’t your thing then Peru isn’t at short for a solution to it that. Head to Arequipa where a variety of potatoes are cultivated, as much as 3,800 types!
