Peru is a country of great natural beauty and diversity. The Andes Mountains run through the center of the country, and the Amazon rainforest lies in the eastern part of Peru. There are also many coastal areas, including the Pacific Ocean coastline and Lake Titicaca, which is located on the border between Peru and Bolivia. Peru is home to many ancient Inca ruins, including Machu Picchu, which is perhaps the most famous archaeological site in South America.
