Peru: Andes

 

The travel video cover in 146 minutes a quick tour in peru in search of the vestiges of the Inca civilization. Our intention was to show an interesting and pretty intense itinerary, which we were able to cover in about 12 days. We wanted to shoot a travelogue, a long form documentary about this particular trip making it different from the regular documentaries you may see on TV. We covered a lot of ground in the narration associated with the film: from history to legends, architecture and traditions, customs and religions we tried as much as possible to approach most of the issues you encounter in such a trip.

The travel in Peru  is pretty well organized. Transportation is widely available and all the archeological sites are easily accessible. Buses and minibuses cross the cities and an, every other day, train and, recently, a bus connects Cusco to Puno over the altiplano. There are also many convenient flights between different cities. 
The main obstacle in traveling to Peru is the altitude, and in spite that it can be fixed with matte de coca, there are still many dangerous cases of AMS.

We ship for free to continental USA but for international destinations, unfortunately, we have to charge a fee to ship your order.            Please click here to add one shipping fee per your entire order.
