MACHU PICCHU TRAVEL INFORMATION

 

Machu Picchu, is Situated at About 80 km Northwest of Cuzco, It is The Ancient Inca Town. It is the Fabulous Lost City That Has Been Forgotten for More Than 3 Centuries, It Escaped from the Eyes of the Spanish Conquerors. It Was Discovered in the Andes Mountains of Peru in 1911 by Hiram Bingham. The Citadel is Divided into Two Sectors: Extensive Agriculture Terraces and Urban Landscapes, Which Contains Main Squares, Temples, Palaces. The Style of its Buildings and Pottery as Well as its Careful Planning Suggests That the Town Was Built Under the Supervision of the Inca State, Which Was Centered in Cusco. The Most Famous Feature of the Site is a Carved Natural Stone, Known as "Intihuatana," Surrounded by Carved Stones with Trapezoidal Windows. The Stone and its Complex Surrounding Walls are Probably Related to the Heliocentric Religion of the Incas. The Ruins Require at Least a Day, Some say Two days of Worship. The Mountains Overlooking the Site , Huayna Picchu (on Which There are Some Ruins) , Has Steps to the Top for a Better View of the Ruins. The Trek Takes About 1 Hour. The Natural Surroundings and the Mystical Atmosphere Make This Place Unique and Unforgettable.
