For fearless foodies Peru's diversity of native foods in legendary (hello, more than 4,000 varieties of potato!), and adventurous chefs in Lima are turning tradition on its head, utilizing meats like alpaca and piranha an native fruits like lucuma.
Also in the luxury vein is Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel, which offers private tours of Machu Picchu accompanied by an interpreter and a shaman, who also leads a “payment to the earth” ritual inspired by Inca spiritual ceremonies.
Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel is located at the foot of Machu Picchu and on the Banks of the Vilcanota River .
From salt mines in the Sacred Valley dating to pre-inca days to the colonial inspired town of Urubamba and majestic Machu Picchu, there’s much more to Peru than ancient wonders and mundane tourist spots.
The food at Sumaq Machu Picchu is phenomenal . From the formal dining to the cooking class, from the welcoming drinks and snacks to the treats delivered to my room: I was impressed.
I never realized how lovely clean red roses, handmade tablecloths, and leather menus laced with alpaca wool were on a train until I had them on the Inca Rail. I’ve taken my fair share of rinky- dink locomotives, but refreshing trout from the Sacred Valley coated in crispy quinoa, free flowing Tacama Gran Tinto from southern Peru, and refreshing Pisco sours served by men in burgundy tuxedos had me fearing I’d never go back to my sticky floor, foam seat train days
