We took our first steps in Peru crossing the border from Bolivia through Lake Titicaca. In Copacabana (Bolivia) they recommended us not to visit Puno, arguing that there was really nothing interesting to discover as the floating islands on this side of Titicaca are very touristy. We decided not to pay attention to the recommendations and we dedicated two days to Puno. We were intrigued by the way of life of the inhabitants of these artificial islands made of totora. So we made a small boat trip starting from the port of Puno. Honestly, yes, everything is very oriented towards tourism, even though the place has something special so if you are in the area it is worth the visit.
Many are the routes that take you to Machu Picchu, but none is like the Inca Trail Tours, the most famous pedestrian path in the Americas. After flying from the capital of Perú, Lima, you will arrive in Cusco to walk for four days along a path through forests and dense fog, millenary stone steps and discovering the ruins of ancient fortifications and Inca cities, and all the time enjoying majestic views.
The best season is during the dry season, which covers the months April to the end of September. In October the rains begin and you can find Machu Picchu covered by clouds. If you travel in June, we recommend you to book the Inti Raymi 2020 Tour that takes place in June 24th, and also hike the Palcoyo Mountain Tour, which is an incredible Rainbow Mountain located in the Andes.
