Peru is a country that has many tourist attractions but the most well known are Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca. However, for those who have time Peru has a lot more to offer.
75% of the worlds Alpaca’s live in Peru and the national animal is the Vicuna (like the Alpaca). This animal comes in 22 natural colours and its wool is considered the world’s best. Cuy (Roasted Guinea pig) is the national dish and it is served with complete head and feet. Forget the Sahara or Namibia: the world highest sand dune is in Peru and is just under 1200 meters high from base to summit. Forget the Grand Canyon or Fish River Canyon the Cotahuasi Canyon in Peru is nearly twice as deep as the Grand Canyon.
Peru is where the potato originated and today just over 3000 varieties are grown.
Peru is a country in western South America and the fourth most populated in South America and the third largest. Throughout the 20th century, Peru endured armed territorial disputes, coups, social unrest, and internal conflicts. It is classified as an upcoming market. The poverty rate hovers around 19%. But today Peru is one of the region’s most prosperous economies with an average growth rate of 5.9% and it has one of the world’s fastest industrial growth rates at an average of 9.6%. Its main economic activities include mining, manufacturing, agriculture and fishing. Except for Lake Titicaca all its borders lay in remote and sparsely populated areas.
