Peru's eleven eco-regions contain a sixth of all plant life on the planet, as well as an astounding variety of birds, mammals, insects, reptiles, and amphibians. In order to truly appreciate, let alone spot, all of this biodiversity it behooves travelers to explore outdoor areas with naturalist guides. On one of these tours, you'll explore a national park or reserve with a guide who will point out plant and animal species and teach you about regional ecology. These tours proceed at a slow pace and are a good choice for families or travelers who prefer to not walk long distances.
3 Things to Do
Some say that the path to adventure is uncertain and unknown. When hiking to Peru’s Mandor Waterfall, the path to adventure takes you through the village of Aguas Calientes, past the bridges of Machu Picchu, up a ladder, past train tracks, through a garden, and jungle. After all of this, you still have a waterfall to look forward to — talk about taking the scenic route.
