Machu Picchu Vacations
Why Visit Machu Picchu?
Machu Picchu vacations take travelers to the most famous archaeological site in South America, a natural and cultural UNESCO World Heritage Site, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, and undoubtedly the greatest artistic and architectural vestige of the great Incan civilization. Spectacularly nestled among the lofty peaks of the Peruvian Andes, the Inca emperor Pachacuti’s palatial estate perches timelessly above the snaking Urubamba River below as bewitching clouds of mist cushion the iconic sanctuary’s sprawling temples and steep stone terraces.
Take the famous Inca Trail, part of the ancient Incan Qhapac Ñan road system, and follow in the famous footsteps of American explorer Hiram Bingham (or take his namesake train) to discover the remarkable ruins’ hidden history and celestial secrets. Those not faint of heart may hike Huayna Picchu to see the mystical Temple of The Moon. It’s not all terraces and temples though – the sacred citadel shelters many microclimates and rare flora and fauna, like the Andean cock-of-the-rock (Peru’s national bird), puma, ocelot, and endangered spectacled bear. You may not spot them all, but one thing is for certain – a Machu Picchu vacation package is a must for any travelers planning to visit Peru.
