Roughly 35,000 species of plants exist in the Peruvian territory, over 20,000 have been indentified and the rest are endemic. There are around 900 species of orchids and also many types of medicine plants that have been extracted from forest trees, shrubs and flowers like “uña de gato” (cat nail), hallucinogenic plants like ayahuasca, etc. You can also find in the high Andes, rare plants like the Puya Raimondi, considered the world’s largest bromeliad, whith 8,000 inflore-scences and sizes of up to 10 meters.

Alta Tours can arrange weaving workshops, lectures by weavers and textile experts and visits to Peru’s leading collections of ancient textiles. We can also organize excursions to some of Peru’s most famed weaving centers, like Chincheros near Cusco.
