Most travelers have heard about Machu Picchu at least once. The breathtaking ancient Inca citadel is a place like no other and one of the world’s seven wonders. Thing is, those who visit Perú, usually miss some of the most amazing activities this country offers due to the misconception that Machu Picchu is the only thing to do in Perú.

Here are a couple of the most recommended activities and places to visit that don't include Machu Picchu when traveling Perú.

  • Try the local food - Peruvian cuisine has always been considered as one of the best in the world. The local chefs create innovative techniques that allow them to be at the lead, especially when it's about seafood. Ceviche (the national dish), Ají de Gallina, Causa Limeña, and papa a la huancaina are the most recommended dishes to try.
  • Climbing to Vinicunca (Rainbow Mountain) - This is a challenging but rewarding activity. Also called the seven colors mountain, got its particular appearance after 65 millions of absorbing minerals and sediments brought by the sea. To get to Vinicunca, you must walk about 6 km. from the town of Pampachiri (100 km. away from Cusco). Due to its altitude, 5.200 meters high over sea level, you must evaluate your physical condition before taking the route to Vinicunca.
