35 Photos That Will Inspire You to Travel to Peru

Wondering if you should travel to Peru this year?

Four weeks in Peru was what I could describe as unforgettable. I’m fortunate enough to travel to many parts of the world as part of my job, but this one was special. From the wonderful Lake Titicaca to Machu Picchu, Colca Canyon to Salkantay Pass, I hiked, sailed, walked to so many great places that I always wanted to see, and took some of the most beautiful photos.

There are still a lot of places in Peru that I have not seen. I’m hoping I can visit them sometime in the future. In the mean time, here are 35 most beautiful photos of Peru that will inspire you to travel to this exquisite country. Let your eyes convince you!
