Machu Picchu

Set deep in the Andes Mountains of Peru, the spectacular archaeological site of Machu Picchu is one of the 'New Seven Wonders of the World'. Known as the ‘Lost City of the Incas’, the local Quechua farmers in the area knew of Machu Picchu for centuries, but it was not until the American historian Hiram Bingham discovered the site in 1911, that the rest of the world became aware of its existence. The site was covered in thick vegetation until Bingham and his team cleared the growth. Located high above the Urubamba River, the citadel was once completely self-contained, surrounded by agricultural terraces sufficient to feed the population and watered by natural springs. The ruins include palaces, baths, temples, storage rooms and some 150 houses, all in a remarkable state of preservation that will take your breath away. To experience the wonders of Machu Picchu you have the option to hike the spectacular Inca Trail or the Lares Trek, or enjoy a scenic train and bus ride from Cuzco.
