Lima, Dec. 2. Peru has been named as the fifth must-see destination for 2017 by the UK edition of leading travel magazine National Geographic Traveller, Peru's Exports and Tourism Promotion Board (PromPeru) announced.

The Andean nation is featured in The Cool List: 17 for 2017, the magazine's annual list of places you can't miss in the coming year. Selected by a team of NatGeo Traveller's writers, the list appears in the January/February edition of the magazine.

The list also includes off-radar Irish Donegal, hipster hotspot Portland and artistic Dusseldorf, to name a few, according to Pat Riddell, National Geographic Traveller (UK) editor.

This way, The Cool List adds to the considerable recognition gained by Peru in the UK this year: British Airways launched a direct London-to-Lima flight last May and BBC's The Travel Show aired two episodes on Peruvian Kuelap Fortress and Yumbilla Waterfalls in October.

Likewise, Choquequirao (Cusco region) topped Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2017 Top Regions list, one of the world's most prestigious destinations rankings.

The British ranking highlights Peruvian pre-Incan fortress Kuelap, soon to facilitate access through a cable-car, as well as Lima's ?burgeoning food? and ?blossoming? hotel scene.

NatGeo's The Cool List 2017 top 5 spots were taken by Donegal (Ireland), Santiago (Chile), Helsinki (Finland), Greenland and Peru.

    Peru General Information

    Peru, the largest area in the Andean countries, was the cradle of the most advanced indigenous civilizations and most powerful empire in  South America pre-Columbian cultures. Peru was also the focus of Spanish colonial domination for its first two hundred years of rule. What remained of pre-Columbian America with regard to people, culture, and settlements is perhaps better represented in Peru than in any other country.

    The country has a 2,400 kilometer (1,500 miles) long coast on the Pacific Ocean and bordes Colombia and Ecuador in the North, Brazil and Bolivia on the east, and Chile on the south. It is the only country that borders all the Andean state.

    Language: the official languages of Peru are: Spanish which is used on a 73% of the population; the Quechua or runasimi, spoken for a  24% of peruvians. Some specialists recognise to especific variations of quechua on the national territory : the huáihuash, which is quite popular on the central part of Peru and the huámpuy, spoken by the rest of the country.

    Most of the quechua-speakers are bilingual and have spanish as their second language.

Nazca Lines: A place of amazing history and mystery

  • portada

Paracas, Dec. 1. Motivations that lure visitors to Peru’s Ica region may be many — from its natural landscapes to its gastronomic offer — but its history and archaeological sites remain the top reasons to arrive in this coastal location. And what better way to immerse into Ica’s legacy than by visiting the enigmatic Nazca lines.
 
Peru’s emblematic Nazca lines provide a highly attractive destination for Annual Executives Conference (CADE 2016) attendees, who can visit the attraction and learn about this major remnant of ancient Peruvian culture.
The geoglyphs are large, detailed designs depicting geometric and zoomorphic figures covering an area 50 km long and 15 km wide. These magnificent archaeological site can be found between km 419-465 on Panamericana Sur highway.
First reports on these intricate patterns were made by Peruvian archaeologist Toribio Mejia Xespe in 1927. Later, in 1939, U.S. scientist Paul Kosok carried out a number of investigations on the lines as well.
However, it wasn’t until 1946 that more thorough research works emerged, when German researcher Maria Reiche became interested in the geoglyphs. She would dedicate the rest of her life to their study and preservation.

Various theories have been put forth to explain the origin and use of the lines, and some researchers affirm they date from 550 A.D. As for their purpose, the Lady of Nazca interpreted them as a gigantic solar and lunar calendar used by ancient Peruvian astronomers. Two traits characterize these markings: their massive size and shallow depth, which ranges from 15 to 30 cm. Over thirty of these drawings have been reported to date, including marine creatures, land animals, as well as geometric and anthropomorphic shapes. The largest geoglyphs are a bird of nearly 300 m, a lizard (180 m), a pelican (135 m), a condor (135 m), a monkey (135 m) and a spider (42 m).The arid Nazca plains also play canvas to a whale, two llamas and various birds: a heron, a crane, a pelican, a seagull, a parrot and the symbolic hummingbird.

Tourism
There are two alternatives to see these enigmatic figures: from the ground and from the air.
Visitors can climb ‘El Mirador’ (observation tower) built overlooking the archaeological site to appreciate two of the famous lines, the hands and the tree, as well as many other figures carved into the desert.
The other option is flying over the geoglyphs. In this sense, Nazca’s Maria Reiche Airport offers 30-minute tours to take in the view from above and marvel at the main figures.
The Nazca lines and geoglyphs were designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site on December 17, 1994
