LONDON (1 August 2019) — The September issue of National Geographic Traveller (UK) gets under the skin of Peru. The heartland of the great Inca empire, Peru is blessed with mountains, jungle, desert and world-renowned cuisine. This issue brings you the best of this beguiling destination, from slick city restaurants pioneering modern cuisine to remote rainforest treks.

Our writers travelled to the South American country to tackle the Lares Trek, an alternative to Machu Picchu’s Inca Trail; explore Cusco; marvel at the natural colours of Rainbow Mountain; and head deep into the realm of the ‘cloud warriors’ in the Amazonas region, where the Chachapoya honour their dead with multi-storey mausoleums built high in the mountains. We also reveal best Amazon experiences, archaeological sites and classic dishes, including ceviche and lomo saltado — a dish of sirloin steak marinated in tangy vinegar, soy sauce and spices.

PLUS free with the magazine is the latest 132-page National Geographic Traveller Food, which takes a culinary tour of Japan, getting to the heart of the country’s cuisine through 11 dishes, from tempura to takoyaki. Elsewhere, we discover the gourmet Greek island of Sifnos, find out how Ecuador is falling back in love with chocolate, deconstruct goulash and celebrate Piedmont’s hazelnut harvest.

Also free with the September issue is a 20-page West Sweden guide.
