Lost In Peru

Before you panic, let me clear that I was not really lost in Peru. Being in this country was such a liberating and memorable experience, hence the caption. It was like I was in an altogether different world. I was completely disconnected from everything without a worry about work, health, relationships and other worldly issues. Peru is a country like no other. Its magical surroundings will enchant you and leave you under a spell that I don’t believe can be broken. You would want to visit again and again just as I want to ever since my return last week.

As I booked my flight to Lima (Peru’s capital) on airzen, I had no idea what to expect. I had based my decision to visit from the little that I learned about the country on Wikipedia. Who knew then that I was making such an excellent choice. From historical sites to gorgeous coastal areas, majestic mountain ranges and lush green forests, Peru has it all. Here are some of the top destinations to visit in the country. 


Located just outside the city of Cusco, this UNESCO World heritage site dates back to the Inca Empire which was the largest empire in its time. Saksaywaman is one of the many remnants of this empire in Cusco city. History buffs love this citadel. Considering I am not that big of a history buff, I am sure everyone will find this place interesting just like I did.

Huchuy Qosqo

This archaeological site is truly a wonder. It is situated on a mountain so yes be assured that the views will be great. The irrigation system from the times of the Incan Empire and huge reservoir system from the Spanish era are the greatest source of attraction here.

The Chincha Islands

The clear blue water of The Pacific Ocean hitting the cliffs and the sea birds hopping around their nests transport you to a world of serenity and calmness. The experience is indescribable in words!

Casa del Moral

Here you can view the colonial art and admire the 17th century architecture of the house. It is a great hit among tourists and it is hard to explain why. You will know why when you visit!

Huayna Picchu

As mentioned earlier above, Peru boasts many majestic mountains. Huayna Picchu is one of the smaller peaks so hiking and mountaineering on it is doable for many tourists. Along the way you will find remains of the Inca Empire. The Temple of the Moon is the most famous temple on this mountain. Since this destination is very popular among tourists and the administration only allows a certain number of people to visit, make sure arrangements are in place so that you don’t miss out on visiting this place.


Beach plus a mountain? The presence of both at the same location is an uncommon occurrence. Yet you will find it in Peru. Other than the fascinating historical ruins, fishing and surfing is very popular here as well.
