High in the Andes lies the cradle of South American civilisation, the heartland of the ancient and highly sophisticated Inca Empire. The absolute highlight of a trip to this region is a visit to the lost city of Machu Picchu, one of the most remarkable and enigmatic sites in the world, a citadel set atop a mountain at the edge of the jungle. As you travel throughout the Andes, you will discover a rich culture which includes elements introduced by the Spanish conquistadores alongside ancient Inca traditions.
Venture across the Altiplano - the high plateau of the Andes - and you will reach Lake Titicaca, the largest freshwater lake in South America and home to a unique traditional culture. Travel beyond the Andes and you will discover an astonishing range of geographical diversity - from the arid coastal plains with their mysterious Nazca Lines to the jungle and the mighty Amazon.
