PERU
The "Kingdom of the Sun", encapsulates the essence of America, the "New World", in geography as well as in the mix of native Indian and European cultures. A country of antique cultures, where the traditional way of life of the Indians has still got validity; great scenic contrasts, perhaps the greatest treasure of the Americas. The Spanish conquistadors came in ruthless search of gold, although they never found their most elusive prize of all, the "Lost City of the Incas". Besides the impressive Inca ruins close to Cusco and the 'lost city' Machu Picchu, Peru is also home of the famous 'Nazca lines', the Chulpa-grave buildings of the Colla at Lake Titicaca and witness of the bloody Spanish conquest. With its stunning variety in landscapes Peru is also one of the most spectacular countries on earth. Of 103 possible ecological zones on earth 83 are represented only in Peru.
