Even at the time of the Inca kings, people attributed great importance to orchids. They built so called ‘Tika’ gardens that were very popular even back then. According to legends, the Inca king scattered orchids in front of a young girl in one of these gardens.

We wouldn’t think that Peru is home to more than 3000 species of orchids, and according to estimations, not even half of them have been discovered yet.

Travelling from the town of Cuzco to Machu Picchu by train, orchids can be seen everywhere. As the train passes through the rain-forest, orchids cling from the trees. (The view is the dream of an ‘orchid-hunter’)

Arriving to Machu Picchu, walking up the stairs of the shrine, we can see one of the biggest and most common orchids, the Sobralia dichtomat. There are also different kinds of orchids on the ground.

Only 6 kilometres separates the ruins of Winay Huayna and Machu Picchu, but it takes at least 3 to 6 hours to cover the distance, as it is so full of orchids to see!
The best time to see the most orchids in bloom in their natural habitat are the months of September, October and November.

All in all, besides Peru’s wonderful architectural and cultural heritage, there are great opportunities for the lovers of orchids too.
