“Our day started very early, but it worth it! We were able to see the old Maya city before the crowds, and were able to take great pictures too. It is a really interesting place, especially if you like history. It is one of the few very important historical sites to visit like Siem Reap, Giza or Rome... Our guide; Marco knew every little details about the place and the Maya culture and made our trip even more exciting.”

Brief History of Machu Picchu & Advice:

Machu Picchu was (relatively recently) "discovered" by American historian, Hiram Bingham, in 1911 while searching for the legendary "lost city of the Incas".  Hiram Bingham and his local guides stumbled across the site which was then covered in thick vegetation which was later cleared revealing the magical mountain-top archaeological site and opening up the possibility for archaeologists to conduct research on the site by 1915.  Whether arriving via Inca Trail or entering from Aguas Calientes don't miss the excellent photo opportunities from the following spots:  Hut of the Caretaker of the Funerary Rock (a restored building with a thatched roof), Sacred Plaza with views of the Cordillera Vilcabamba in the distance and Rio Urubamba below.  Take a short walk out to the Inca Drawbridge (30 minutes) and Inti Punku (45 - 60 minutes) for great views of the site.

ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS
During the trek single travelers will share a tent with another traveler of the same sex & couples will have a tent to themselves.
