Two Underrated Spots to Visit in Peru
Barry Grummer has served as the president of KR&R since 2002 and possesses more than 40 years of experience in the roofing industry. Outside of his professional life, Barry Grummer enjoys international travel and has visited various international destinations including Peru.
Peru is a diverse country full of cultural history and landscapes ranging from arid to lush. Many people gravitate toward visiting Machu Picchu when in Peru, but there are other destinations that are also great places to check out.
For those who are fascinated by the history and cultural heritage of the Inca civilization, the Sacred Valley should be a must-visit destination. Running from the Urubamba River to Ollantaytambo, the ruins hearken back to the height of the Incan empire. Additionally, the region boasts more moisture and greenery in its landscapes than many other places in the country.
Once known as the home of “The Cloud People” of Peru, Chachapoyas is a picturesque location in the Andes that is almost always covered with cloud forest. The views are breathtaking, ranging from massive rivers to bright green hills, but its elevation in the Andes mountains also makes Chachapoyas colder than other spots in Peru.
