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 50 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.
Hilary Bradt is the founder of Bradt Travel Guides and led treks to Peru every year for 15 years.
