Little Monkey has spent some of his education in South America and traveled extensively around the region. He has been to Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, and is currently in Chile. He took all these photos in South America.
No doubt the most famous attraction of Peru is the Machu Picchu and the only reason you have to go to Cusco, as this is the place where you start your journey to the last Incan City. Machu Picchu is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is one of the most important archaeological sites in the Americas. May to October is the recommended time to visit this Sacred Valley.
There are several ways to go to Machu Picchu, either by rail, or simply follow the Inca Trail by hiking. Little Monkey and Anna, always the adventurous types, decided to do it by hiking.
