Highlights of Peru

Machu Picchu

Scroll

Kept hidden from the Spanish conquistadors, the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu remained undisturbed until its rediscovery in 1911. Justly deserving its UNESCO World Heritage status, the site occupies a breathtaking position on a limestone ridge overlooking rainforested mountains and the Urubamba River some 600 metres below. Having evaded Spanish destruction, the buildings are in remarkable condition with many plazas, temples and altars providing an unparalleled glimpse of the Inca past. As well as being the stunning finale to the Inca Trail, the site can be reached via a picturesque train and bus journey from Cusco.
