Peru: Machu Picchu

So remote that it was discovered by Hiram Bingham only 100-odd years ago, Machu Picchu is now disarmingly accessible.  The journey there by road and rail through an ever-tightening river gorge is all part of an amazing experience of multiple sensations. Everyone is familiar with the dramatic shot of the citadel, astride a series of man-hewn terraces carved into a rainforest-clad mountain saddle at 2,430m in the Andean foothills. A visit never disappoints: the steep stone staircases, bridges, temples, houses and palaces are easy to explore, and beg to be photographed.

What our experts say

“It’s really worth the effort (provided you don’t suffer seriously from vertigo – to ascend the sheer wall of the mountain Huayna Picchu – the pointy job you see across from the entrance to the site. You get a very different perspective from other viewpoints and you have the added satisfaction of achieving the climb!”
