Peru: Machu Picchu

Visit Us

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.

Doing the walk to the hanging Inca Bridge (Intipata) – a giddying sight.

Claire Milner

Drinking in the view from the top of the pointy mountain behind the ruins, Huayna Picchu, which justifies the exertions of the climb!

Isabelle

Isabelle Mazille

Mist permitting, the first sight of the citadel from the Gate of the Sun at the end of the Inca Trail (or mini version) will make you gasp with delight.

Brian Williams

Discovering the ruins in silence before and after the day-trippers – stay at a local hotel.

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!”
