There is so much more to Peru, than Machu Pichu. I have tried to highlight a few of them by means of this blog. Ofcourse, there is the Huaraz mountains north of Lima, the beautiful city of Ayucucho, the posh neighbourhood of Miraflores – which deserve a mention here. If you are visiting Peru sometime soon, or visiting it the second time around, take the road less traveled and rest assured, you will not be disappointed.This post was originally published on Outbound Again.

Discover the Chachapoyas fortress: Peruvian history is full of secrets waiting to be discovered. About 1200 kms north of Lima, is a place called Chachapoyas, which once hosted a civilization of the same name. This beautiful little town is overlooked by an ancient fortress: no swarming tourists, no long waiting lines, no crazy-high entrance fee. If you are coming here after visiting Machu Pichu, you will be able to identify the differences and similarities between the two cultures.
