Machu Picchu – Seven wonders of this world – magical Machu Picchu – 4800m altitude trekked, Machu Picchu conquered, fantastic trip.
Machu Picchu is one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world. Every year hundreds of thousands of tourists make a pilgrimage to the Peruvian ruined city. But since its discovery around a hundred years ago, it has apparently been given a wrong name, as scientists have now discovered.
The Unesco World Heritage site was named Huayna Picchu by its builders, the Inca people. At least that’s what a Peruvian historian and a US archaeologist claim. Huayna Picchu is actually the name of the mighty mountain peak that looms behind the Inca city on most motifs. Machu Picchu currently denotes both the archaeological site and the mountain on the other side of the ruins.
These are among the most famous structures of mankind. The terraced buildings at a height of more than 2400 meters fascinate visitors because of the perfect, seamless stone walls, which time apparently could hardly harm.
Those the most important attraction of Peru. The lost city of the Incas is located at 120 kilometers of Cusco, in the Urubamba Valley. Since its discovery back in 1911, by the American researcher Hiram Bingham, there have been many hypotheses regarding the construction of the city. However, it is known that the Incas built the city in this rough area of the jungle to avoid access and possible attacks from their enemies. was the most important Incan center for worship and astronomic observation.

“Some of my favorite shots from the Inca trail. It had been on my bucket list for awhile. We were supposed to go in 2020 but it got pushed back as many of you experienced too ðŸ˜¢ it felt surreal to finally go and experience this amazing place!”
“What have you done that was so hard it made you want to give up? This 8-hour hike was definitely hard for us, but if we endure through the tough times, beautiful things will come from our struggles. What is something beautiful that has come from you fighting through a struggle? Keep fighting until the end!!

In the Andes of Peru you find the ruins of Machu Picchu – the mysteries of the Inca Empire. What we see today had to be sculpted out to create a relatively flat space – about 60 percent of the construction done at Machu Picchu was underground. Train tickets from Cusco can run more than a hundred dollars each, and entry fees range from $47 to $62 depending on which options you choose. A round-trip up and down the 2,000-feet-high which the Inca ruins are located costs another $24. You can also walk up and down for free. The path offers extraordinary views of the Machu Picchu Historical Sanctuary, which looks almost as it did in the past. The climb is strenuous and takes about 90 minutes.
But it’s worth the visit for sure.
Celebrating the Big 4-0 in Peru, trekking along the Inca Trail to the Sacred Machu Picchu, and doing ‘the work’ through Ayahuasca ðŸŒŒðŸ§˜ðŸ½â™€ï¸âœ¨ï¸ðŸŽˆðŸ•
Ayahusca shows you what you need, not what you want. Sometimes, it’s harder to look within and go deeper. She was illuminating, challenging and spiritual. All the healing and love we need is within. Coming back with deep respect and love for both the chaos and order around me. â˜¯ï¸ðŸŒ±ðŸŒµ
âœ¨ MACHU PICCHU…ðŸ‡µðŸ‡ª
… and another wonder of the world visited together, now we just need to go to China and India! Have you been to one of the wonders there?
After everything that happened to us in Peru, we were more than happy to finally be in this historic place!
How many wonders have you visited and which one amazed you the most? ðŸ¤©ðŸ˜±
After 4 days hiking the Inca Trail, walking 45km under the sun, the fog and the rain, reaching Machu Picchu was definitely the cherry of the cake! Sulpayki Peru (thank you in Quechua language) for making this dream come true!
Many are the top tours to Machu Picchu, but none is like the Inca Trail Tours, the most famous pedestrian path in the Americas. After flying from the capital of Perú, Lima, you will arrive in Cusco to walk for four days along a path through forests and dense fog, millenary stone steps and discovering the ruins of ancient fortifications and Inca cities, and all the time enjoying majestic views.
The best season is during the dry season, which covers the months April to the end of September. In October the rains begin and you can find Machu Picchu covered by clouds. If you travel in June, we recommend you to book the Inti Raymi 2022 Tour that takes place in June 24th, and also hike the Palcoyo Mountain Tour, which is an incredible Rainbow Mountain located in the Andes.
