Making it all the way to Machu Picchu, standing mid in the clouds and looking at this stunning Inca site was simply breathtaking and spectacular. An ‘extraordinary’ example in an ordinary world.
Machu Picchu is an Inca citadel in the Anden mountains 2,430m above sea level. It was built by the Incan in the 15th century and never found by the Spanish conquerer. Machu Picchu is known for the use of its sophisticated dry-stone walls that fuse huge blocks without the use of mortar. The buildings are set in an astronomical alignment with panoramic views over the Urubamba River valley.
