At least 48 people have been killed after a bus plunged 100 metres off a cliff in a popular backpacking destination in Peru.

The bus collided with a truck before it careened off "devil's cliff" along a sharply curving highway north of the capital, Lima, the country's health ministry said.

The accident took place on the Panamericana Norte highway near the area of Pasamayo on the Pacific coast on Tuesday.

Six people survived the crash and were being treated for injuries while the government rushed emergency medical services to the site.
