About Peru

Map is showing the western South American country with a 2,414 km long coastline at the South Pacific Ocean. Peru is bordered by Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, and Ecuador.

The third-largest country in South America occupies area of 1,285,216 km², that is more than twice the size of metropolitan France, or slightly smaller than Alaska.

The country is crossed throughout its length by the Andes, the world's longest exposed mountain range. Peru's highest point is Nevado Huascaran in the Cordillera Blanca range of the western Andes, with an elevation of 6,768 m. The mountain is named after a 16th-century Inca emperor (Huáscar). Peru's three main regions are: the coast (costa), the narrow coastal plains between the Ocean and the Andes, the highlands (sierra), with the Andes range and the Andean Plateau (Altiplano) with an average height of about 3,700 m, and, more than half of the country's area is jungle (selva), a vast flat region in the east, covered by the Amazon rainforest.

Peru has a population of about 31.1 million inhabitants (in 2015). Capital and largest city is Lima. Official languages are Spanish and Quechua, a native language, spoken primarily in the Andes region.
