TOP TOURIST DESTINATION IN PERU#1
A hidden city between two peaks in the Andes—one of the Inca Empire’s greatest. Machu Picchu would disappear after only about 100 years, but it was never found by the colonizing Spanish invaders and thus remained untouched.

Perhaps it’s the views from the lost Incan city that astound travelers the most. Framed by the peak of Huayna Picchu, it looks out over vast mountain-scapes and the raging river below. Machu Picchu is without question one of the most lauded landmarks in the world.
  • ROYAL TOMB

    With over 100 skeletons found here, this is thought to be where burials and/or sacrifices were performed. The impressive construction of the tomb is certainly something to see.

  • GETTING THERE

    Beginning usually in Cusco, travelers can opt to take the train or follow the Inca trail into the hidden city. The trail system will take you through the mountains, cloud forest and through the alpine tundra.

  • AGUAS CALIENTES

    This is a small town that sprung up as a result of the popularity of Machu Picchu. You can take the train from here and it serves as a great home base as some of the closest hotels to the site are located in Aguas Calientes.
