Things to do in Peru - bike, hike and ride a scary cable car to Machu Picchu on one of the five alternatives to the busy Inca Trail ; glide past manatees, dolphins, monkeys and macaws in the Reserva Nacional Pacaya-Samiria ; swill a scoopful of chicha - saliva-fermented corn beer - to earn the respect of the locals ; descend into the narrow, hallucinatory underground chambers of the millennia-old ruins at Chavin de Huántar. Three authors, 144 days of on-the-road research via planes, riverboats and dozens of death-defying bus rides have contributed to this book.
