Machu Picchu Inca Trail
Machu Picchu Inca Trail

Machu Picchu “Lost City” because the jungle had literally swallowed it when Yale explorer Hiram Bingham III “rediscovered” it in 1911. When the overgrown vegetation was removed.

We always recommend to spend at least one night in “Machu Picchu Pueblo”, the nearest town (20 min. away). For those who have the time and are looking for an incredible experience, we recommend to star two nights. There are all kinds of hotels in “Machu Picchu Pueblo”, from hostals to 5 stars hotels.

Also visit the Peru Travel Trips  section, they are places to visit besides Machu Picchu.

Machu Picchu “Lost Inca City” was rediscovered as the early 20th century, but for some reason, was completely abandoned some 100 years later.

Unfortunately, most of the cities built by the Incas were destroyed by Spanish conquers, but Machu Picchu it remained hidden, invisible for them, That is the reason why Machu Picchu remained almost intact

Some scientists says Machu Picchu was an astronomical observatory, also its sacred Intihuatana stone exactly indicates the two equinoxes. Twice a year, the sun sits directly over the stone and generates no shadow.

Tips when visiting Machu Picchu

  • After visiting Machu Picchu, relax in the hot springs of the town of Aguas Calientes located 800 meters from the town center. Bring your towel and bathing clothes there are dressing rooms where you can change.
  • Climb the Putucusi and appreciate the citadel of Machu Picchu in a different way.
  • Climb the Huayna Picchu and live a more complete and wonderful experience, this is a climb to the mountain that accompanies Machu Picchu although it contains important Inca constructions its access is not easy. The access is done in two shifts from 7am to 9am and 10 am to noon, after this time no one can access this place, this due to the inclement weather that produces a dense fog that makes dangerous access to this place. Here one can appreciate from platforms built at the edge of the precipice, the famous Inca’s chair, passages and tunnels, carved stones, vestiges of Inkarakay (a hanging fortress in the middle of a mountain) and enjoy a wonderful view that includes the citadel, the Vilcanota river, the Canyon and the Salcantay snowy.
  • Visit the Manuel Chavez Ballon site museum – this excellent museum gives an idea of the integration between nature and archaeology that characterizes the sanctuary. It is possible to arrive following the way marked through the asphalted road where the buses circulate passing the “Puente Ruinas”, it is to approximately 30 minutes walking from the same town of “Aguas Calientes”. This museum houses objects such as artifacts, construction tools, mirrors and needles. It also shows the way in which the stone quarry was worked for the construction of the citadel. It is in this place that the pieces returned by Yale University that Hiran Bingham took with him should be exhibited. Here one can observe an infinity of ornamental, medicinal and food plants typical of the place.
  • We see abundant orchids that are one of the best treasures kept in the sanctuary, here there are more than 350 species including wakankis, the zapatito de reyna and the wiñay wayna.
