  • The step that crosses the Andes La Raya communicates well the sense of travel in a Peruvian route. Between Puno (Lake Titicaca) and Cuzco (Machupicchu), this way you can admire the cañon Tinajani with the towering plants of puja, a species discovered by botanist milanese Raimondi, and some colonial churches in villages like Ayaviri. Crossed the pass to over 4,300 meters, the beauty of ruins of ancient inca Viracocha, warehouse, ready for the magnificence of Machu Picchu: a show that remains in your heart for a lifetime

  • A place of rare beauty, beautiful mountains and snow on the highest peaks. It was place of passage but scored.
