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 a well-preserved ecological environment, so 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 Hotels, 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 necessary 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 tour it.
this city remained well preserved, was not destroyed, and was only at the hands of the “Pachamama.” 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 am and are open until 5 pm.
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 bathrooms 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 transports you can find in the “Calle Pavitos,” this transport will take you to Ollantaytambo station, from where 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, and our assistants will take care of 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 04 Days and Inca Trail 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 does locate). This short hike will take you to the top ascent of 600 meters. It would be best to acclimate to the altitude, wear special footwear, and hydrate properly.
This splendid hike gives you breathtaking Andes views of the valley, Urubamba River, and surrounding mountains. Hiking up does not represent much difficulty; children can do it without problems. 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.
