Is it safe for a young female to travel on her own throughout s.America?
 
I am planning to first go to Lima, Peru then go to Machu Picchu and so on. I bought a lonely Planet S. America book to guide my travel. One of the paths I am planning on taking is Andean mountain high ,partially not all the way. I must admit that I want to go however, I am afraid I am being irrationally by going by myself. Any suggestion on what places to avoid and suggestion to keep safe?

Should be safe enough unless there are many things you don't eat .... people there are friendly .... you might meet someone along the way ... lol ....

I have been to Brazil, Argentina and Peru. Make sure you have a learned a fair amount of spanish before you go. I would suggest a guide at night. Its not a wealthy continent.

in any country, it isn't that safe to travel most especially if she has no adult present in her tour

as long as you don't
1)wear really tight short shorts and
2)walk through the favellas of Rio or Sao Paulo
Because,
Murder rate is 10 times higher than the worst parts of USA. Rape is common. Police are corrupt and extort people all the time. Many police are in the gangs. A shotting happens every 30 mins or so. IF you stay in the tourist sections then, no worries.
I really want to go someday.
try to go with other people. (a guy)
