About this book
This is the most comprehensive, user-friendly trekking guide to Peru available. Peru’s mountains offer the most varied and dramatic treks in South America with the added attraction of Pre-Columbian ruins along the way. Celebrating 40 years of Bradt, this unique guidebook is based on the Peru section of the very first Bradt guide. All the original treks have been re-walked and new off-the-beaten-track routes added. Ideal for both backpackers and those in an organized group, it describes over 65 mountain treks and day walks with background information and travelers’ tales. Special boxes throughout the text cover topics from guinea pigs to trekking with children.
About the Author
In the mid 1970s, Hilary Bradt spent 18 months backpacking through South America with her husband George, writing their first guide and thus founding Bradt Travel Guides on the way. From 1979 to 1992 she visited Peru and other South American countries for two months each summer leading treks for an American tour operator, and occasionally thereafter for other companies. She reckons to have visited Machu Picchu at least 25 times
