Peru

Peru is a fascinating land located along South America’s Pacific coast; often best experienced as part of a guided tour. From the magnificent snow-capped peaks of the Andes to the exquisite sandy beaches of the Pacific coast, Peru offers trips and adventures for any kind of traveler.

In Peru, The earliest evidences of human presence in Peruvian territory have been dated to approximately 9,000 years BCE. The oldest known complex society in Peru, the Norte Chico civilization, flourished along the coast of the Pacific Ocean between 3,000 and 1,800 BCE. These early developments were followed by archaeological cultures such as: Cupisnique, Chavin, Paracas, Mochica, Wari, Chimu and Nazca.

In the 15th century, the Incas emerged as a powerful state which, in the span of a century, formed the largest empire. The Andean societies were based on agriculture, using techniques such as irrigation and terracing; camelid husbandry and fishing were also important. Organization relied on reciprocity and redistribution because these societies had no notion of market or money.
