Summary
This Globe Trekker episode follows Neil Gibson's journey through geographically diverse Peru, stretching from the Amazon, across the Andes, and to the Pacific Coast. In capital city Lima, he meets an Irishman who runs a mission in the shanty town Villa El Salvador before traveling north to the Andean city of Huaraz, where he treks up to a glacier 16,000 feet above sea level. He visits the surfer destination beach at Huanchaco, takes a trip in a traditional reed boat, visits a Shaman, goes to the jungle city of Iquitos to explore rainforest wildlife, flies over the mysterious Nazca lines, sees an ancient desert burial site, crosses the highest navigable lake in the world, and celebrates a potato harvest.
