Peru Photo Gallery

Peru is a very colourful country with lots of opportunities for adventure travel. I visited this country on a completely unplanned and unresearched impulse so I missed out on markets and festivals. Nevertheless, I had lots of fun! I travelled here with a basic point and shoot camera (Canon Powershot A520) and was fortunate to have mostly clear skies.

Hiking in the Andes

Tons of hiking options in the Andes mountains in central Peru. In particular I recommend hiking to the Colca Canyon to see the majestic Andean Condors.


Life in cities and towns

A visual tour of Lima (the capital city), Arequipa, Puno, and Cusco, and some settlements in between.

Machu Picchu trek

A trip to Peru is incomplete without a trek to Machu Picchu, a hidden Inca settlement built high up in the Andes.


Stunning landscapes

Peru has a very diverse landscape, from the Pacific coast, to the deserts south of Lima, Andes mountains, Sacred valley and the Amazon rainforest.


Inca ruins and architecture

Numerous baffling Inca sites dot the Sacred Valley – Moray, Salinas, and Machu Picchu. In addition, there are relics of numerous pre-Columbian cultures, some still survive on the lake Titicaca, while others have left striking ruins.
