Machu Picchu is the incredible site of an ancient Incan city, high in the Andes of Peru.
Located at 2,430 meters (8,000 ft), this UNESCO World Heritage site is often referred to as "The Lost City of the Incas", is one of the most familiar symbols of the Incan Empire, and is one of the most famous and spectacular sets of ruins in the world. A visit to Peru would not be complete without experiencing Machu Picchu.
"Old Peak" is what Machu Picchu means in the ancient language of the Incas, and this beautiful site is situated high above a cloud forest containing intriguing carved tombs, a sacred worship site and temple as well as staircases. The easiest way to access Macchu Picchu is via train from Cuzco or a multi-day hiking trail if you're feeling a thirst for adventure. High season is from May to September, but no more than 2500 visitors a day are allowed to visit this archeological site.
