Why study in Cusco – Peru?
Peru has everything you could possibly ask for: history, culture, timeless traditions, a diverse climate and breathtaking scenery that includes beaches, jungles and mountains as high as 6000 meters. As a result of this wide diversity of climates and geography Peru is the most biodiverse country in the world. Peru lays claim to a veritable wonderland of vegetation systems and their attendant suites of animals.
From the verdant, vibrant jungles of the Amazon, home of colorful birds such as the macaw, big cats, fascinating reptiles and rare mammals such as the giant otter, onwards and up through the cloud forests of the Eastern Andean slopes where spectacled bears still roam, across the sierra and the high altiplano punas, home to rare big cats, llamas, alpacas, the timid and endangered vicuna and three species of spectacular flamingo, you will be held spellbound by the scenery and fascinated to go in search of the amazing wildlife as you travel down through the dry forests of Western mountains via lush green valleys incised into one of the world’s driest deserts and on to the Pacific coast where you may encounter whales, seals and a wide variety of migratory and local birds.
