Travel Guide

What is the lost city of Machu Picchu?

Machu Picchu was probably built around 1450, during the glory years of the Inca Empire. In this period, the Empire was ruled by the Incas Pachacutec Yupanqui (1438-1471) and Tupac Yupanqui (1472-1493).

This citadel has impressive cultural and natural attractions and an ecological environment that is very well preserved, which is why the Peruvian state declared it a Protected Natural Area in 1981.

Also, UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site. In this sanctuary, it is possible to find up to 350 birds, 200 species of orchids, ten different ecological zones (from glacial peaks to tropical zones), a network of Inca trails, and several archeological sites. And last but not least, the legendary city of Machu Picchu.

Machu Picchu is located 80 km (50 miles) northwest of Cusco (Peru) at 2,430 meters, 450 meters from the Urubamba River. It is about 112 kilometers from Cusco by train. This Inca site is surrounded by impressive, steep mountain ranges separated by narrow valleys and deep ravines. Machu Picchu National Park is essential for its archaeological value and various ecosystems.

No trip to Peru is complete without visiting Machu Picchu (“Old Mountain” in Quechua). Because the Spaniards failed to find Machu Picchu, it was impossible to explore it.

This city remained well preserved, was not destroyed, and was only at the hands of the “Pachamama.” The Inca city is one of the reasons why it is one of the most important Inca ruins. In a worldwide Internet poll in 2007, Machu Picchu was voted one of the World’s New Seven Wonders.

Archaeologists say that the Incas probably abandoned the city of Machu Picchu because the invasion of the Spanish conquistadors caused the death of most of the Incas while others went into hiding.

The ruins of Machu Picchu open at 6 a.m. and are open until 6 p.m.

It is not allowed to bring large backpacks to the archaeological site. The maximum size allowed is 25 liters. You can leave your luggage in the storage room of your hotel.

To enter the Inca city, you are not allowed to bring food, only drinks; it does forbid using tripods, drones, or selfie sticks.

There is a restroom at the entrance of Machu Picchu; be sure to visit the toilets before entering. There are no restrooms inside the Inca city. The cost is approx. 0.75 USD.

The best-known ways to get to Machu Picchu are:

By Train: The most economical way is to use the transport you can find in the “Calle Pavitos,” this transport will take you to Ollantaytambo station. From there, you can board your train to Machu Picchu. If you hire our travel agency, “Kondor Path Tours,” you will not have to worry about anything. Since our transport will accompany you, our assistants will care for everything. You can get a train to Machu Picchu Pueblo, the closest point to the ruins, and from there, you can take a bus that will take you to the ruins. If you choose this option, you will also find beautiful views.

Hiking Tour to Machu Picchu: We can offer you the Inca Trail for 04 days and the Inca Trail for 02 days if you are an adventure seeker.

These two routes through the mountains are an enjoyable and popular experience. Few people can start this trek daily, so booking in advance is very important.

If you are in good physical condition, you can challenge the slopes of Machu Picchu mountain (where the Inca site is located). This short hike will take you to the top ascent of 600 meters. It would help if you took care to acclimatize to the altitude, wear special footwear, and hydrate properly.

This incredible hike gives you breathtaking panoramic views of the valley, river, and surrounding mountains. This ascent does not represent much difficulty; even children can do it without worry. Don’t rush and arrive at your own pace; remember that you will be over 3,000 meters above sea level!

In Quechua, Huayna Picchu means Young Mountain, and although it has a little-known name, this mountain appears in all the best-known photos. Its exploration is less popular, but it is the most attractive for the most adventurous visitors of the Machu Picchu Historical Sanctuary.

Making the ascent is medium-difficult; you will find narrow paths with stunning views on the climb. It is a one-way road, so the descent is on the other side, and you can appreciate both sides of the mountain—a unique and impressive tour.

Alittle bit of everything We had a last minute change of plans when it came to our tour. We were supposed to visit the rainbow mountain but with the recent protesting we called to see if we could change last minute and they were very accommodating. Odon and Fernando were amazing! They took us to see multiple attractions and made us feel very at home. And kudos to Renee for the amazing driving. I would highly recommend using this company for a tour. We will definitely use them if we ever come back!

Atv Tour Odin and Fernando were great as well as our driver Rene. Very informative about the city of Cusco. Enjoyed our tour with this company and these individuals who took us around. Great time! Highly recommend!!!
Family vacation Kondor path tours arranged a couple of private tours on our last vacation in Peru. Our first tour was the Rainbow Mountains and the next day we did the sacred Valley Tour.The administrative services were excellent, we met at our hotel the day before our tours and our head guide, Fredy, explained everything perfectly, including what to wear and bring for each tour. On the tour days, our guides (Fredy and Juan Carlos) and driver (Juan Carlos) were great! very knowledgeable, considerate about our party, always helpful and ready to answer questions and meet the expectations (completely different expectations because we had different ages in our party (from 11 to 69 years)) of each party member.The rainbow mountain is awesome and is is really helpful to go with a guide that knows about the area, but also about hiking!!!
Excellent guide who stays with you for the entire day The Vinicunca one-day horse tour was fantastic. The friendly and informative Freddy guided us for the entire bus ride and mountain trek. He knew where to stand to get the best photos and made everything fun and accommodating. The horse ride up made it much easier to enjoy the final hike. Lunch was large and tasty. Door to door service.
Awesome Service and Tours Fernando and Patricia were SUPER responsive - usually responded to emails within 10 minutes!!. The arrangements they made for Cusco, Machu Picchu, Sacred Valley, and surrounding areas were awesome.They were waiting for us at the airport and did everything we asked them. Our guide for the four days was Herberth and driver was Juan Carlos. Both were SUPER SUPER great. Juan Carlos was such an amazingly pleasant driver with cute stories. He also was a very safe driver. Herberth was very knowledgable and helpful. Took us all over the places with details about the history and details. We had friends who were not able to climb much and they accommodated us all.On the day we had planned to do rainbow mountain we did not feel great and emailed Fernando at 5am and he responded within 5 minutes with other options for us to do that day. Overall, if you are going to Peru and want to visit the historic sites, you SHOULD go with these people. They are SUPERB!!
Great memories for our family We went for a tour to the rainbow mountain, service was excellent and then we decided to go for another tour on the next day to the sacred valley, it was also excellent. Our guide was Fredy and our driver was Juan Carlos, two excellent people, honest and respectful. I recommend them. Gracias por todo, lo pasamos increíble.
Rainbow Trek and Horseback Riding A group of 7 of us did a One Day Rainbow Trek and Horseback Riding. Freddy was our guide and he was prompt and with us every moment of the journey. They were so accommodating to move the debrief meeting the night before because we had a food tour that evening. Freddy had so much energy, knowledge, and excitement to share with us about his native homeland. In addition, he made sure that we were well taken care of when one of us was actually sick from the altitude. It was such an amazing experience and Freddy made sure we got the best of it. Thank you! Highly recommend Kondor Path Tours.

MachuPicchu trek We had an amazing experience with the one day trek and the day after visit to the MachuPicchu site with Hober Guia, this guide is very knowledgeable of the history and culture, patient and kind and took care of all of our needs. The tour was arranged perfectly taking care of all small details. Very much recommend!
Maras Moray hike We recently did this hike with Bonnet. She was a highly experienced guide. V good English. Judged our ability well and made for a great day out.
MachuPicchu and Rainbow Moutain We worked with Kondor Path for two tours, of Machu Picchu and Rainbow Mountain. Everything they did was well organized, well documented, well communicated. The two guides and the driver were great, very friendly and knowledgeable. All were bilingual (English and Spanish). At Rainbow Mountain we rode horses to the base of the really steep part of the mountain (this saved some 7 km of hiking). But that last part was quite difficult! I'm glad I had prepared and gotten conditioned.
