"visit the beautiful ancient..." Peru Favorite Tip by

Peru General: 206 reviews and 170 photos


Favorite thing: visit the beautiful ancient 'lost city' of Machu Picchu. Machu Picchu is situated between very steep mountains with summits way above 5.500m. The only way to get there is over a narrow footpath constructed by the Incas, the Inca Trail or the Camino del Inca.

Today, thousands upon thousands of tourists come by train to visit this lost sacred city of the Incas. (Please see 'Transportation' for more details).
