During our Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu we encountered some of the most beautiful flora we have seen during all our travels in South America. Many of the flowers are orchids, since Peru has thousands of species of them.
Plants and Flowers of Machu Picchu
I did my best to look up all the flora from Peru in Google Images, but many times I just couldn’t find the name, and on a few occasions, I couldn’t even find a similar picture. So if you have some flower friends or better Google skills, have at it! Enjoy the plant and flower pictures from Peru.
