Machu Picchu

    Machu Picchu

    Machu Picchu straddles the saddle of a high mountain with steep terraced slopes that fall precipitously down to the Urubamba River far below. Behind the main ruins, Huayna Picchu towers overhead. A two-hour climb along a steep trail leads to the top. The overlook provides a dramatically different view of the ruins and the surrounding mountains. If you're able, the hike should not be missed.
