As a country located in northwest region of South America with multiple races, languages and various cultures, Peru is known as the birthplace of ancient Incan culture. In ancient Indian language, Peru means “corn storehouse” as it is well-known for its abundance of corn. The diversity of natural environment, the Amazon Jungle, the Inca ruins on Andean Plateau and Lake Titicaca, the highest lake in the world, make Peru one of the most attractive places of interest in the world.
