The Best Mountain Treks in Peru (that Aren’t Machu Picchu!)

Adventure travelers looking for incredible mountain treks will find a wealth of truly off the beaten path locations scattered around Peru.

While Machu Picchu and the Inca Trail receive the majority of attention, Peru offers a number of alternatives if you’re hoping to feel less like a tourist and more like a true explorer.
