Machu Picchu is a landmark that most of us are familiar with in one way or another. Archaeologists are pretty much agreed that it was built for an ancient Inca emperor in the 1400s and has been referred to as the “Lost City of the Incas”. It was actually abandoned about 100 years after being built and shows an amazing part of the past in this amazing South American region.
Visiting Machu Picchu can be a really rewarding and almost spiritual experience for some, and getting your Machu Picchu Tickets should be done with a company who can help you to plan your trip as you will be at a high climate, in an area where it can be tough to reach, and having a tour operator help with your trip is vital.
Once you have made it up to Machu Picchu, the views are breathtaking, and it shows a glimpse of what the world looked like in a totally different culture, hundreds of years ago. At 8000 feet above sea level the views are always going to be pretty spectacular, but in a humbling and amazing setting such as this you will truly experience something that is once in a lifetime.
If you are ambitious, you can take the inca trail with guides and experience an even more amazing and authentic way to reach Machu Picchu. Either way, the amount of people visiting is limited and you need to book well in advance. There is a reason this was voted one of the seven new wonders of the world and is well worth a visit.
