With the start of the 2017 Silk Way Rally, the most important rally raid race of the middle of the year, Peru will reveal the qualities of its destinations that make it an ideal place for the practice of adventure sports as well as having a great capability of hosting high-performance sports competitions. By the end of 2017, Peru will host the Marathon Des Sables, and the 2018 Dakar Rally in January.
Peruvian geography offers intrepid travelers diverse options for the practice of adventure sports ranging from activities on the coast like surfing, kayaking, sandboarding, mountain biking, motorcycling, trekking through the Andes and jungle among other activities. That is why, with the objective of showing the qualities of Peruvian destinations to those attending the Silk Way Rally, there will be videos showing the most important attractions of Peru. These videos will have a special emphasis on Paracas, San Juan de Marcona, Arequipa and Puno, places where the Dakar Rally will take place in early 2018. The Silk Way Rally brings together the main teams, media and opinion leaders from Russia, China and Kazakhstan.
Peru is without a doubt the most relevant attraction of the next edition of the Dakar Rally, as it will be the starting point of the race in its 40th edition. In addition to this, six stages are scheduled in this country. At the beginning, in Peru there are the largest and most desired dunes for the practice of off-road sports in South America. Then the mountains of the wonderful mountain range and finally the plateau of Puno. It is important to know that the teams, drivers, and opinion leaders that attend the Silk Way Rally are the same as the ones that attend the Dakar. All types of information about Peru will be provided to ensure that everyone at the Silk Way Rally knows about the Latin American country.
