Descriptions

The most famous city of the Incas was extraordinarily built on the peak of Mach Picchu mountain located some 2,430 meters above sea level during the 15th century by two Inca emperors Pachacutec Inca Yupanqui and Túpac Inca Yupanqui. The citadel was abandoned during the Spanish conquest and remained hidden for almost four centuries! This is a must see place to visit during your time in Peru, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the new seven wonders of the world renowned for its exceptional engineering techniques and unique architecture.

 

For those of you looking for a more economical trip to Machu Picchu, this is the tour for you.
