Among the most dynamic travel destinations in South America, Peru boasts a wealth of trekking opportunities through glaciated mountain ranges, cloud forests, and Amazon jungle. It features the world’s greatest ancient road, the world’s deepest canyon, and the world’s third-highest waterfall. The country’s 15,000-mile Inca road network, extensive archaeological remains, and rich living cultural traditions, combined with 50 million acres of protected natural parks and reserves, make Peru ideally suited to trekking-based travel adventure.

Robert and Daisy Kunstaetter, trail-tested authors and adventurous expats, bring the high quality of work they are known for to bear on Peru’s excellent trekking options. This new, full-color guidebook features everything you’ll need to find and plan for treks in the country, including the necessary permits and documentation, cultural tips for responsible trekking, information on trekking infrastructure, maps, public safety, trail safety, staying healthy, and much more!

Trekking Peru showcases nine different regions in the country, covering popular areas such as Cusco and Lake Titicaca but also less-traveled areas such as the Great Inca Road and more remote areas in the Central Highlands. The variety the Kunstaetters offer and their insights as locals in the region are what make this guide stand apart and prove especially useful.
