Peru is tradition, history, mystery. Its peculiar culture and spectacular landscapes hide some corners worth admiring. Therefore, you must discover these secret places in Peru so that, if you are thinking of taking a trip to this beautiful land, you know from the beginning where to start.
Peru hides many more places, wonders, and secrets. However, I encourage you to discover these three in particular, since they fully capture the essence of what the country is.
Mountain, desert and water. Three different slopes that connect in a single point: a land without equal whose corners you will never regret knowing and in which you will always want more. No matter how long your trip lasts, it will always be short!
Ollantaytambo is the first secret place in Peru that I would love to show you. It is a town in the south of the country located in the Sacred Valley. Its main peculiarity is that it houses Inca ruins.
You can find a fortress where we can enjoy monuments such as the fountain of the Baths of the Princess or the Temple of the Sun.
In this town, we will transport ourselves to the golden Inca era and enjoy its peculiar form of construction, very geometric and emulating the natural mountains.
Last year Huacachina seems to have become fashionable, but before that, it was one of the most charming secret places in Peru. When we think of Peru we all come to mind the imposing image of Machu Picchu, mountains covered with lush green flora. However, there is another side of the coin and it is what we find in this destination.
A few hours from Lima, the capital of the country, we will find Huacachina, the desert, and an oasis of Ica, a splendid, curious and must-visit place if you are passionate about landscapes and contrasts. A perfect destination for those who love adventure and who enjoy collecting different experiences in their luggage.
Located in the Andes of Peru, Millpu is a perfect paradise for nature lovers in its purest form. Here you will find endless natural pools. A true jewel of nature that invites you to enter its crystalline waters and enjoy a completely different destination.
Although this corner already has a charm for itself, in the digital age we can say that it is a destination that you can not stop taking pictures to share with everyone.
Three paradises in the same country! Are we preparing the suitcase?
