The first thought for many of us, when thinking of Peru, is likely to be the Incas and the Andes. The long history of this indigenous people with their impressive legacies such as Machu Picchu or Ollantaytambo attracts many visitors, but the country has a lot more to offer. First of all, the peoples of Lake Titicaca should be mentioned. The Urus, for example, live on self-built, floating islands made of dried Totora reeds, their houses are made of reed, as are their boats. Most of Peru, however, consists of rainforest and is located in the Amazon basin. The easiest way to get there is by plane and boat and the possibility of wildlife encounter is rather high. Hearing the sounds of the deep rainforest in the morning when I wake up always has something very magical for me!
