11 days in Peru

August 2007

Three girls set out for an adventure of a lifetime. Seeing Machu Picchu in person is a truly amazing experience, especially if you can start your journey through the Inca Trail. We opted for the 2-day hike to Machu Picchu so we could see other sites in Peru.  We were not ready for a 4-day camping ordeal.

Here is our itinerary in Peru:

Day 1:   Arrival into Lima
Day 2:   Departure from Lima by air to Arequipa
Day 3:   Departure from Arequipa by air to Cusco
Day 4:   Cusco
Day 5:   Sacred Valley
Day 6:   Inca Trail-Machu Picchu
Day 7:   Cusco
Day 8:   Departure from Cusco by air to Juliaca, public transportation to Puno
Day 9:   Lake Titicaca (gateway is from Puno)
Day 10: Departure from Puno/Juliaca by air to Lima
Day 11: Lima

Sites we visited:

Lima:  Catacombs at Monasterio de San Francisco, Miraflores, Barranco

Arequipa:  Plaza de Armas, Monasterio de Santa Catalina, stroll along San Francisco street

Cusco:  Machu Picchu (most trips start in Cusco)
Qorikancha, La Catedral, Plaza de Armas, Avenida del Sol, Calle Loreto

Sacred Valley:  Ollantaytamba, Chinchero, Moray, Salinas, Pisac ruins

Lake Titicaca:  Isla Flotantes, Isle Taquile


About Jan

In 2004 and 2010, I set aside time to travel the world in 3 parts. In 2004, I traveled to Thailand, Europe, and Pacific Northwest region of the U.S. In 2010, I traveled to 3 continents: Asia, South America, and Africa. I am not sure if I have a fascination with the number 3, but I seem to be constantly traveling by numbers.
